Then, if/when you get the opportunity to race something with power, you're automatically more efficient than someone who never learned to carry momentum in the first place.

Back to the experimenting more this weekend, will try what you advised, good times.
Indeed, in a former life I was a club-level motorcycle racer, and all I raced was a vintage 250GP and a modern (well, NOW it's vintage) 125GP bike, and on those momentum was everything. I too am not "built like a sprinter", but unfortunately I've got none of the aerobic power of an enduro, so what works for me definitely will not work for everyone! Try a bunch of different **** and see what sticks to the wall!
