Quite pleased with this one as No 2 guy is Cat 1, although I'm sure he'll be having it back off me....

Got another one today - does it count as bagging if I have to keep creating the segments :mrgreen:

I hopefully racing my first race on Saturday -weather permitting - so wanted to stretch my legs a bit on the run home.

Very very windy today. Struggled to hold 12mph into the headwind. But you know what that means.....

http://app.strava.com/activities/45281285#777501388

No way I could get the KOM on this one without a little help

http://app.strava.com/activities/45281285#777501390

This one is completely exposed to the wind averaged 31.8 on what is basically a flat 2 mile segment

I think the wind is the strava equivalent of EPO. Now I know how Lance must have felt :D

Just noticed that Strava has estimated my power at 503W on that second one :lol: :lol: :lol:

With that profile pic and those speeds people might start thinking you actually are Phillipe Gilbert :wink:

Went out yesterday for a day off after a few mishaps, only had an hour.

Happy got one: http://app.strava.com/segments/1265205

Then extended the segment to the full road and still KOM: http://app.strava.com/segments/3650148

Pretty happy with that, as I normally only turbo at this time of year and I really struggled last Sat when I went out. Must be the new Gabba helping me ;)

First race today.. and the rumours about the 4th Cat bunch being the most dangerous place on earth are true.

Was trying hard to stay out of trouble and near/in the top 10 but the speed up the hill from the 10 or so riders in front of me was shocking (especially since it was near the end of the race) and I got boxed in by the bunch who swooped round the outside and someone then swerved into me apparently and I was pushed into the guy on my left and crashed.

Bit frustrated but it was still outrageously fun - and £20 worth of kit damaged isn't the end of the world but there must be some hefty insurance premiums on some of the bikes being ridden :shock:

Excellent, after a couple of months racing you'll be picking off your strava KOM's at will

Bagged one today, OK, it's an off-road segment, but I was on my cross bike, and I did have slicks on: http://app.strava.com/activities/46608338#807681354

But, a segment is a segment :D

Sh1t is bound to happen sooner rather than later in 4th races especially on short circuits... was in a 3/4 race yesterday as a leg warmer and some of the bike handling was, to be brutally frank, bloody awful.
A tip for you, pick out 2/3/4 road races and earn your points that way - usually safer but the downside is, you have to work a damn sight harder if you want to get away in a break. If you really have to do a circuit, pick one that actually has a hill in it so that it is likely to split off and drop the weaker riders . It is riders who at their giddy limits who can pose the potential dangers of poor riding.

Got the nod from a mate who works in the Police control room that strava has been hacked into. The hackers are then looking to see who is using it and burgling the empty home. Appears to be Cumbria at present, but may well be elsewhere too. The linking factor is strava, apparantly...

There were a few threads on this posted a while ago, hence the privacy feature on Strava now and why I never start my GPS at home, but at least 300+yds away. I normally bimble for a mile or so before starting the course or recording.

There are A LOT of segments in London!!!!

I'd guess the max hr of 248 is a glitch

My HRM always reads quite high, although I think 248 is the max to date.

I am looking at getting the Garmin premium one, but not sure it's gonna help....

Oddly veloviewer gives me a few more KOMs (usually joint ones) than Strava.
