On the back of a decent Capital Punishment result this year I was hopeful of a sub 3hr finish. I started in wave 4 towards the front and made progress through the traffic until my seat clamp failed leaving me with no choice but to jump off and fix it whilst loads of riders I'd worked hard to pass went by.

This would happen a total of 3 times and by such time I knew a sub 3hr was out the window. I also knew the energy I'd spent making ground up would cost me. Sure enough, the last 15km were hard with the last 7km really hard.

Who are we?: A group of mates riding for fun

Background:

Early in the new year I posted a forum topic on training advice (http://nobmob.com/node/45423). Very kind NoBMobbers gave me some great articles and advice. My plan was for a 7 week training programme with the goal of a sub 3hr finish at CP. This was going to be a tall order given I'd only ridden twice since November 2013.
