Pursuit training : Felt TK3

I took the risk of going out for some training on my Track bike on the road today with no brakes.  I picked roads with no turnouts and managed to get in a few good workouts. Unfortunately I was a bit tired after my weekend exploits so I didn’t do as hard a workout as I would have liked.   29.2 MPH was my maximum speed but keeping that up for even 1 mile was really hard and my best average for the mile was 27.6MPH. Winds were pretty light today but I did have a slight tail wind on the May School Mile.

Strava Data

My last time at the track was 26.56MPH and the winners speed in last years Masters pursuit was an amazing 29.2MPH. I reckon doing such a speed over 3k from a standing start must have required 30MPH plus which for me would be a tall order on 48×15 even if I was strong enough.  I suppose aero wheels could give me a MPH but that isn’t an available option to me for this Saturday’s champs. I would be really happy if I  could break 4 minutes but that would require 27.8MPH.
