I just completed my first 24 hour 5 team member race. I'm running a 1 x 10 set up and felt much more exhausted on the climbs becasue of it. After reviewing my Garman data my cadance dropped to the mid 20's for some of the short steep climbs. From my inexperianced racing knowlwdge this seems to be very low. I was thinking of going with a 2 x10 to increase my spinning and help with my lap times.
I am a cat 2 mid to front pack finisher who is planning to do alot of racing and continued training this season.
Also my one knee was very fatiqued and stiff. After the race i went to an orthopedic Sports Dr to have it looked at. He said I probably over worked it and recommended I have to fluid drained and some cortisone put in. I'm not a young gun (50) so I need to be in tune with my body more than the young guns.
what are your opinions with my spinning cadance?
