24-Hours of Moab bound

This weekend is 24-hrs of Moab and I'm racing solo. In this race we wear timing chips and pass cards over scanners for Real Time results. Lap splits are updated to the internet instantly so you can watch me race from your arm chair. The Real Time results will be here or if not then you should find a link to them on this page during the race. Race starts at noon on Saturday and runs until shortly after noon on Sunday.

So far there are 10 solo women registered with some big names and fast gals in the group. The top two from last year are back to duke it out again. This one is gonna be a real game. I'll be hitting the start line with a CTL/ATL/TSB of 111/79/32. My race plan will produce 1100 TSS which will boost my CTL/ATL to 132/203. These are numbers I exceeded in training before my taper. A key component for 24-hr racing is to stay below the CTL/ATL ceiling. That's the cracking point. I aint crackin...

Alls that's left is a mega packing session and a long drive to Moab.

After the race I'm getting in a boat and floating down the Colorado River for a week so the post race report will be a long time coming.

Tear it up! Did you estimate or record your IF?

IF is estimated. Now I have to go out and ride it. I did 24-hrs of OP with my SRM and got a lot of good data during that race to make a valid estimate. Dave has collected wads of 24-hr mtb power data too so the guesses are all a mish-mash of his data and my data.

Next up I'm getting an Ergomo Pro power meter for my mtb which has current TSS and IF on the display you can see while riding. That's gonna be a killer tool if it works mechanically with the mtb. I'll keep you posted on that one.
