ABCC - Time Trial Pacing

Another article on Time Trial Pacing at the Association of British Cycling Coaches.

This one discuses some older studies using Computrainers and while using power numbers from the CT assumes that PE is used to gauge effort. Some useful data points though.

Also found this one there: Pace Judgement in Time Trials

That also provides some confirmation for the start easy end hard strategy. And comments on another suggestion, start with higher cadence, then drop cadence to maintain power. Which is a suggestion I had not heard before.
