Hi, i know this question might sound silly.. because often you dont know how many laps you will end up doing (in a solo 12 or 24). In a 12 hour race your lap times might get slower or faster over the 12 hours, but i've noticed most riders lap times stay consistent. Well in my last 12 hour solo, my aim was to start out steady and pick up the pace at hour seven if i felt good. That worked to plan so i tried to go hard for the last to laps, hoping i would bonk towards the end of the last lap, to me this would of been a perfectly timed race. I started my last lap with 10 minutes till the cutoff point till no more laps were alowed.
My last two laps were my personal best which surprised me quite alot. I think i may of left it a bit late to put the foot down since i never bonked.
So my question is, how do you time your race? And secondly, did i time may race badly by never cramping up or bonking?
I would like any help or insight on this please. As this was only my second 12 hour.
