I've found in the past, the few times I've checked, that large events typically have finish results appearing like a bell curve, with a few on the tails and a large number in the middle (sorry, if you didn't have stats, this might not make sense). Ran the numbers for this year's Climb to Kaiser, and it came out about the same. Note that events with arbitrary time cut-offs will chop the tail off the slower end of the curve. Interesting to us anal types.

Bottom line -- if you want to ride with a lot of people around, be average. ;-)
isnt that 'normal'? nmSteve_0

I'm like a domestique (sp?) I'll give it all I got, then blow up. Which is why I need a basic work out plan for building strength on the trainer.

If you have any thoughts. How long in minutes and at what heart rate (effort level), I'll do it. Thanks for your thoughts.
