HCC Crit:
I now have some unfinished business with this race, quite literally. I made it through 22-24 minutes of the 43-45 minute race. I'm not angry or disappointed with yet another DNF. I know this race doesn't suit me terribly much, but I feel strongly that doing it is going to help me a lot on races that do.

I mostly sat in the last 1/3 of the bunch, moving up is difficult, so I took cheap places when they were on offer, and tried to judge my efforts along the bottom of the course so that I'd hit the hairpin corner the most recovered I could be.

I can't really know if my effort judgement was good or not, but I can say that it takes me a minimum of 1,000W to get out of that bottom corner, and of the 17 laps I managed before the repeated load cracked me, that most were of the kicks were in the 1,200-1,450W range.
