Just did my first Roller Race!

Put on by the Rollapaluza guys in Manchester last night.

I was really struggling, but I managed to get up to 203 RPM at one point. :shock:

Came 11th out of about 40.

One thing I noticed was that there was a lack of lactic acid buildup - almost none, in fact. I was simply out of breath! :shock:

So, how do you get better at doing such a thing? Would this be beneficial on the road? Or too energy inefficient?

    Yes, 500m in 22.41, then 22.37.

    The guy that won did under 20 seconds every round - out of 8000 contestants, only 12 others have gone sub-20 before! Was quite a sight! :shock:
