I'll race the Time Trial Japan 3rd stage and Tokyo Enduro at Saiko on March 10th.
I've done the enduro 3 or 4 times.
But it's the first time to do the Time Trial.
I know @theBlob & @Mlac Peek ride Saiko regularly. So I'm looking for any advice on how to ride it.
The TT will be 2 laps.
Here's a video of a guy doing one lap.
In my experience (in this vid too) the long outward leg is usually a head wind.
I'm wondering where you get more shelter? On the left or on the right?
At the top end of the course you meet the speed bumps. To get your best time would you go over them or around the side? If so, left or right? On a TT bike and trying to stay in TT position, I'm thinking it may be best to go around them...
On the back straight, usually it's a tailwind. I think the right side of the road is fastest here? Or down the middle?
Finally, in terms of wear, how cold is it at around 7am early March???
Thanks for any input!
