Fighting talk my young friend, fighting talk.
I've already been discussing the aggregation of marginal gains with SuperGeoff. Skinsuits and reducing the aero drag from excess cable outer are obvious easy wins. I also be shaving the steerer back to the quick and fitting a stem with rise, a surefire 64g reduction if I've understood correctly. Add those three together and I reckon I have 72s in the bag for no extra effort.
However calculation from the finishing times of those I passed and passed again indicates that I could comfortably cut 90 minutes off my time if I could ride any section of the downhill which would surely be the most efficient approach.
Right, best unleash the cable cutters and contact The Guvnor to get a Retrobike branded skinsuit then.
