Last week we both had a crack at a Masters/Age Group National Title, Gerard in the cycling individual time trial and Jordan in the triathlon sprint champs, and we both came up short with two bronze medals.

After everything we’ve spoken about pre race mentality, what to do in race week, how to execute your best performance, it’s just as important to do a post race analysis after every race.

Because every race is an opportunity to learn and potentially make some valuable time gains for your next race.

So today we’re going to do a post race analysis on ourselves, which we’ll both admit is a lot tougher when it’s a result you’re disappointed in.

BUT on a much more positive note: we’ll talk about some of the trivelo athletes that had MAJOR success, as we had multiple national titles won and best place performances over the last week.

Keys to the episode:

  • The first place to start in your post race analysis
  • What are the key questions you need to ask yourself?
  • How long after the race should you do a post race analysis?
  • When is it okay to compare yourself to athletes around you?
  • The key areas you can gain time in a time trial
  • Real data of how much time you can lose by going too hard too early
  • The number 1 thing to improve on to get more time gains
  • How hard should you push in the important part of the course
  • How to compare your race to a different course
