Team Time Trial
We came into the event as defending champion so the aim is to win again.
We have been training hard all year, racing hard all year.
It is never flat, always up and down.
The area of the golf course, you never really have access to, so it is fantastic to see that, very nice course.
I really enjoyed the course, especially the between 14 to 15km.
The course was great.
Today I came with my teammate. She finishes second but I won because of her.
We both aim to finish together but because of the timing system I crossed a bit quicker. It was fun, we help each other.
It is fun as always, the event have improved a lot since I rode last year.
This weekend with Bangkok Bank CycleFest @Siam Country Club Pattaya.
Claimed another podium in Female Open #2 by Nui Nattamon. Congratulations to all winners. There is still one category to go, Team Time Trial. Stay tuned! And Join us to cheer up our cyclists on Sunday!
Team Time Trial
After being quiet for almost 2 months after completing the NRT, this time, the big brother, P’Trong has organized another meeting again but more thrilling than usual by having 3 teams to join the Team Time Trial category under Satit Tumwan A group.
The finish time was fine at 2:12Hrs. Not bad for the first time with teammates who are new to each other as we all came to experience new things, to meet and to enjoy.
Personally, I think our purpose is not to race and win. It is all about meeting with people and the cyclist idols.
Thank you everyone especially Pathumwan Demonstration team that invited me to join. Another great friendship. It was so glad meeting you all. The event is so fun that I drove home with a smile.
At Bangkok Bank Bangkok Bank CycleFest 2017, we finished second place for TTT team category. Before the race, I saw each team’s name list then know that it is going to be super tired for me as Thai and foreign top cyclists are here. When looking at the results, I rather look from coaching point of view than look only at rankings. If you do the best yet could not win, it means we are not that good and competitive. However, if we win whereas we are not good, but because the other team failed. This is something we need to talk after the race for improvement. Because the WLC’s motto is “We are here to be the best cyclists that we can be” in short, “Here to be the best” which means that we are in the family together to be a cyclist.
Analyzing the race in terms of fitness of our athlete, I would say the team is more than ready, but the fitness technique is not that smooth as we often do often pace line. I made a wrong decision by having the team bringing TT. The U-turn is very challenging. This track requires many techniques but unfortunately, the team has no idea about the route except me. Next year, I think it would be best to bring road bike with aero bar there are two rounds of U-turn, 4 sharp curves and uphill with no speed loading
Reviewing the course, it is 4 laps race with a complete road closure and that why we ride safely and confidently. The route is also challenging. The event is well-organized in terms of F&B, souvenirs, rest area for cheering team, parking lot, toilets and entertainment. The best I have seen in Thailand. I am very impressed and will surely be back next year
