So, I'm going back to Olympic/Standard Distance as my focus for the next year or two. As most of you know, one of my bikes has to go. Initially it was the S3 that I was going to boot, but after looking at my results over the last couple of years, I'm thinking that maybe I'll go back to the S3 and sell the Giant (I know this will make some of you very happy! LOL).
I know that the bike position affects the run. I've had a proper bike fit on the S3 and I've got it in a pretty aero position and have the seat as far forward over the cranks as I can (think back to last year's bike fit thread!)
I'm thinking, over an OD race, if I could gain 2km/hr on the bike by going back to the Cervelo, I could afford to lose up to 15 sec/km without losing any time overall ... and I don't think that I would lose that much.
I know I just came off Kona, so this will have affected my times in Noosa (but it should have affected my bike AND my run, yeah?).
Last year in Noosa I placed as follows in my category: 10/5/10 (overall 5th)
This year in Noosa I placed as follows in my category:6/16/7 (overall 4th)
Check out how I place in my bike/run legs, in other races (in my category) between the Giant and the Cervelo:
