Ryder 8K - 11:02 new PB

Managed to get another 3 seconds off my best time for the last Ryder 8K... I was hoping to get under 11:00 but the construction along Westbrooke Mall (the uphill section in the middle) had left some rough sections and a 15' section of gravel (on a bend, never drifted a corner doing a TT before :-) ).

Average and norm power up as well.

There are 3 more TT's this season. A 48K this weekend (Sunday, after a RR on Saturday..) And two short (10K) Velovet TT's in September and October.

My last time in the Velovet 10K TT was 13:46. I'm hoping to get that under 13:30. That should be possible if the weather co-operates. (The course is pretty much flat, but is next to the Vancouver Airport and the ocean, and can get a lot of wind.) My average power the last time was 368 watts, so should be able to do well over 370.. Which should mean a better time.
