  • Fair play, that's unreal. He ran 12:58 before.

    Yeah last year. Hadn't broken 13 until then.
    Huge improvement..




  • Dunno what to make of these BTC time trials. Some amazing times coming out the past 12 months or so but I wonder is part of this due to the fact where the whole team are effectively pace making 2-3 athletes.

    Last year he was on the pacing duties for Woody Cincaid and the other lads who broke 13. While they are seen as huge breakthroughs I think the pacing element and shoe technology playing a significant role. I know there is always the possibility for more sinister insinuations but I think the set up can at least partly explain some of the huge jumps.

    They are not having to react to racing variables but rather have everything set up to run as fast as possible. Will we see these times being ran in proper race conditions? probably not. How they race next year will be more of a metric to be honest than the intra squad TT's that they are running this year.

    I think in the current pandemic situation they're a good thing. It give athletes something to train for and keeps the motivation up.
    I'd agree with you that they don't resemble a through run race, they're very similar to the golden/diamond league races of the 90's early 00's when a lot of WR were set.

    Certainly the pacing element will help to produce fast times. But it also has to be said some of these people weren't the front runners in respective races and were "pulled" to fast time previously.
    Interesting there was no mention of footwear used,
