I've done this a half dozen times in crits, never once crashed though. Had a bad one at intelligentsia where my rear wheel came probably a foot off the ground, still saved it though!

Nah the acromion was years ago on the mountain bike, you're just the first person I know who has also broken theirs.

It's the stoplights. Assuming you went up and down the coast TMonk? 200w on Fiesta is an easy 20+ mph avg. But you add constant stops in and it drops a lot for me.

I've never done that race but always wanted to give it a shot. I should have done it as a 3. I probably wouldn't have survived that, either. Those roads are part of my favorite loop in the bay area!

105%-110% is what I aim for, but with a full 8-10 min recovery in between, not the 2 minute rest protocol. Then if I'm feeling good, I'll blow out the last interval. My best this year was ~113%
