Heh, yeah, you guys got me. All the climbing practice readily gives it away. vEveresting is what I’m thinking of attempting on Feb 29th.
Easy to say, hard to do with TD at 100% even running a 11sp 50/34 11/34. Just set that up less than a week ago to get used to it. The wide ratio is horrible on the flats fwiw and will be going back to a 52/36 11/28 in March to be sure.
Anyway, I’ve got it in my head I want to earn the right to wear the “Hells 500” Grey stripe jersey.
In a seriously bad, borderline obsessive way.
16ish hours doing the Epic KOM forward 22 times in a single ride makes that vCentury look like child’s play though; don’t have the raw power, never will again, to go up the Alpe 8.5 times at 100%.
Chris, you’ve got 6 trainers? Insane in a humorous way lol. What possessed you to purchase so many? Just two Kickr’s here, the original and the 18’. Almost bought the Neo second time round, but I wanted to check out the new Wahoo Climb. On the flip side, few people could ever duplicate that challenge if you proceed with it!
Gerrie, you’re right. Without the right mental input, indoor riding is torture. If I couldn’t use Zwift, there is a good chance I’d have hung up my clipless pedals and hate life. I can’t be the only one. Really, really, don’t like riding around cars/trucks/etc anymore.
