Virtual Race across the West 2020

We started thinking about virtual ultra-racing during the lockdown for Covid 19 Pandemic and it seemed such a lovely idea. Gave us something to work toward and kept us motivated in times we weren’t allowed to ride our bikes outside. Somewhere in mid May the restrictions in Slovenia were lifted so we could start riding our bikes outdoors again. Still with the season 2020 in the air, not knowing if any of the ultracycling races are going to be held at all, this was the event I was looking forward. Fulgaz and RAAM organisers were doing their best to bring a proper ultra race to the virtual platform. There were some glitches for Windows based system, but during the Test week all worked pretty good, with some drop downs here and there. Of course I was a bit worried about those, but never ever thought I would be complaining about the race course, which I love in real life.

Trening kamp na Gran Canaria je bilo moje prvo daljše kolesarjenje z aero cestnim kolesom Diablo proizvajalca Spiegel Bikes. Nekaj več o opremi mojega lepotca:

Po letih uporabe izključno elektronskega prestavljanja Shimano (Di2) sem se odločil, da bom Diabla opremil z mehanskim kompletom Shimano Dura Ace. Razlog je lažje popravilo v primeru večjih okvar med dirko Red Bull Trans-Siberian Extreme 2020. Ker poznam strmino in zahtevnost klancev na Gran Canaria sem uporabil klasična kolesa Fulcrum Clincher s kaseto 11-32 (in verižnikom 52-36). Za redke ravninske odseke sem dodal triatlonski nastavek in ni mi bilo žal!

Zaradi bližine pripravljalnega kampa na Gran Canariji sem se odločil dirkati na krajši 12-urni dirki, s ciljem izboljšati moj lastni rekord trase. Bil sem zelo blizu, a zaradi zelo močnega vetra sem bil žal nekaj kilometrov prekratek.
Kljub temu je za mano odlična dirka in pokazal sem, da sem za začetek sezone zelo dobro pripravljen.
