Innsbruck WTRL TTT

So that was an exciting week. We went from two teams of 4+ to one merged team, to only one team with 2 new joiners, and a solo fast rider, all in about 48 hrs, and still managed to get a BTS2  team of 7 on the start line ready to go at 6:17.5 .

Well, we thought we did, but Zwift technology caught us out and sent Matt and David off on another race, and then Mike L. had a power meter problem at the start, , so it wasn’t till about 6 km in that we finally had a team of 5 racing in a line, of whom 4 finished, all within 1 second.

Andrea was kept busy picking stragglers up and pulling them back into the group. It was an excellent practice at staying together and drafting, and we did overtake a few teams, but I’m sure nothing to shout about this week time-wise. WTRL hasn’t published results yet anyway, looks like their web service is really suffering, but you can see your individual times on Zwiftpower.com.

For the 5th week out of 6  we had a BTS team on the start line, new people joining every week which is great, and more learning about how to get all the tech working.

Next week’s race:  Thursday 29th October 2020:  WTRL Team Time Trial #80,   Watopia’s Waistband – 1 Lap (27.977km).

We’ve entered BTS and BTS 2 as usual for the 6.05 pm race.
