On Saturday I went to the 125th anniversary dinner and prize presentation. I was there to collect club standard certificates for 2nd class on 10 miles for time of 24:18, 2nd class on 25 miles for time of 1:02:52 and 3rd class on 50 miles for time of 2:10:00. I took the prize certificates to the office and will post pictures tomorrow.
P.S. I know the times are rubbish, but I never ventured outside the "J" courses. I hear that J2/9 and J4/16 are one of the slowest courses.

Just a quick post to end this year's racing season. I managed to win £45, which officially makes bike racing the worst investment I've ever made. Still, 45 quid in the bank and two trophies make up for all the pain.

I'm starting to think about a new set of wheels for the next season. I will definitely need new wheelset for my time trial bike. So, the new wheels will take tubs rather than clinchers; the front wheel will have 108mm aero rims and the back wheel will be solid and will have Ant+ power meter. I'm thinking about Zipp 1080 front wheel and Zipp 900 disc back wheel.

The racing season is over, the nights are drawing in and it isn't raining as much as it did in the summer. It's time to do a lot of base training. This means hundreds and thousands of kilometres over the next few months. The aim of the base training is to become much more efficient at fat metabolism; in other words, to be able to give as much power as possible using fat as the energy source. I will be doing low-intensity rides and measuring how much my power output increases.
