ECCA 10 on the E2 today.  Not really my distance but happy to squeeze an 8 second PB with 21:09.

One more race left.

Final TT of the year today.  Leo 30 on the E2 and not a distance I have raced before.

Bit unwell but made the trip anyway to record 1:08:42.   Hard day all round, but I think I can be happy with the way the year has gone.

Loads of PBs (at long and short distances), club and fixed gear records in the 24. I think you should be enormously pleased with how your year has gone, and if you are going to transition to ultra endurance racing, it sounds like you are going out on a high.
Congratulations on your year - especially since you were struggling with motivation at points it's been awesome.  :thumbsup:

Bugger, just spotted this - they'd have passed a hundred yards from me about twenty minutes ago.

Decent tailwind for them, but a bit damp.

Said I wasn’t going to race next year.   I seem to be missing it.

I haven't ridden the TT bike in anger since early 2018. No harm in hanging it up for a while. I only bring it back out when I think of a goal that motivates me enough to ride it again.
Last one was doing a 49, before that it was holding all the club records and in this case I wanna have a crack at a 300+ 12hr.
I flew to a lot of ultra races this year and I wanna reduce my bike-related 'footprint' on the planet so TTs are decent local options. Plus I raced ultras too much this year. Probabaly took years off my life with all that sleep dep. A 12 is over 'relatively' quickly ;)

Wheels of Fire is far too polite to mention this but he’s riding the world 24hr champs in California at the end of the week.  I’ll dig the link out when I’m not on my phone.
