Well, after essentially being off the bike in any meaningful capacity since mid 2008 with screwed knee, I am in my 6th month back in the saddle and training under Joel's tutelage, seeing power and fitness rising every month.

Finally had a good crack at Makara this morning and knocked 5 seconds off my PB - almost exactly 5 years to the day since I set it! Everything suggests I am now at the best fitness of my life despite now being a late-30's Vet rider - yay for pain and suffering and training trumping age!

The Vorb times have all got quicker in the intervening years and Strava has also since appeared, but still stoked to see my name move one space up the real list at Vorb!

Speaking of age should this list be age adjusted?

Those of us nearing 60 should surely have some form of time concession.

How about 6 seconds for every year over the age of 20. That makes me 10:10 - 3:48 = 6:22 (seems about right) :sneaky:

Marti, fresh back from a podium finish at the CHB junior tour and then taking out the U15 points trophy at the velodrome, has knocked a minute off her previous recorded best ( though she tells me she's beaten that time on a number of occasions now).

Seven years on and I thought I'd time my commute home; 10:09. Could do better.

I managed a 7.48 on the makara climb tonight. I almost regret not making myself feel sick...
