BVC Bare Bones - Saturday - 40 Lap Tempo

40 Lap Tempo Race

Worked at the back of the group for the first 16 or so laps. Then worked to get one, almost had a second but someone (I think Nick Smit) got me at the line.

I jumped at about lap 25. Steph managed to get on my wheel. So we traded sprints for about 5 or 6 laps before we got caught.

Waited until the end, mini-jump, took the second last lap and managed to carry through and take the last as well (which had been the plan.. double points.)

Good enough to get me 1st (with I think about 16-18 points) as the rest of the points where apparently well spread out (40 laps, 2 points for 1st, 1 for 2nd for each lap, double for the last lap, so a total of 123 points available...)

Average speed was 47.9kph. My average power 294 watts, NP average a bit higher at 313. The big jump in the middle was +800 with speed a little over 56kph.
