🚴♂️ WLVR Monday Malarkey 1.3 Race
Third race, two laps of the Flat 8 course on indieVelo.
Improved again, moving ahead of those I rode with last week, not quite able to hold onto Clive Byham’s wheel, having caught. Increased CP/FTP again.

🚴♂️ WLVR RACE 7.9 ITT Black Park
Individual Time Trial around Pinewood Studios course in RGT with West London VR.
Released at 5s intervals, without draft. Went out hard, held on, riding a little ahead of L.Baerts for most of my effort.
15.23km > | 72m ⌃ | 26:53 | 174bpm | 232w | 418kcal | 40/88
🚴♂️ WLVR Monday Malarkey 1.2 Race
Second race, a lap of the Coastal Loop course on indieVelo.
Much better race, holding onto a group including Neil Pugh, Andy Walker, Andy Evans - who pipped me on the line - nudged up CP/FTP again.
17.22km > | 26m ⌃ | 27:32 | 171bpm | 223w | 367kcal | 26/34
🚴♂️ WLVR Monday Malarkey 1.1 Race
First race of the Monday Malarkey series, 5 laps of the South Lake course on indieVelo.
One off the back of the field, but much closer to group 14-18 - raised CP/FTP slightly. Class field from 11 up.
12.50km > | 62m ⌃ | 21:52 | 165bpm | 223w | 292kcal | 19/23
🚴♂️ VCNTT 1.7 Key West | 24.76km > | 32m ⌃ | 44:22 | 162bpm | 210w | 623kcal
Dropped into RGT for a ranked race, nobody else turned up for the US slot! I came first in a race of one, but my ranking stayed still.
Happy to average 210w TT effort on tired legs, but still ~15% down on my best.
My first look at indieVelo, in West London Cycling’s test ride for the new Monday Malarkey series running from next week.
Excellent start, some features I did not expect yet - note the Atom gear indicator.
