Godric CC 25-mile time trial

Location: Wortwell, Harleston, UK

A brisk south-easterly breeze blowing across the out-and-back course on the Suffolk border did little to dampen times, especially with sunshine and decent temperatures to keep the spirits up.

My ride started promisingly, with a steady 320W output, but it all unravelled after around 14 miles when I developed a stitch and my power dropped significantly. Not sure what caused the stitch - maybe the SiS caffeine gel I consumed 30 minutes before the start? I don't think I was properly hydrated, and drank a good 300mL in the last 20 minutes from a bottle I'd decided to carry.
