Virtual Race across the West 2020

We started thinking about virtual ultra-racing during the lockdown for Covid 19 Pandemic and it seemed such a lovely idea. Gave us something to work toward and kept us motivated in times we weren’t allowed to ride our bikes outside. Somewhere in mid May the restrictions in Slovenia were lifted so we could start riding our bikes outdoors again. Still with the season 2020 in the air, not knowing if any of the ultracycling races are going to be held at all, this was the event I was looking forward. Fulgaz and RAAM organisers were doing their best to bring a proper ultra race to the virtual platform. There were some glitches for Windows based system, but during the Test week all worked pretty good, with some drop downs here and there. Of course I was a bit worried about those, but never ever thought I would be complaining about the race course, which I love in real life.

The Gran Canaria Training Camp was my first big outing with my Diablo bike, by Spiegel Bikes. A little bit about the equipment of my beauty:

After years of only using the Shimano electronic (Di2) shifting, I decided to equip this one with mechanical Shimano Dura Ace groupset for a reason of easier repairing in a case of some problems at Red Bull Trans-Siberian Extreme 2020. Knowing how the climbing is at Gran Canaria I used the Fulcrum clincher wheelset with 11-32 cassette (and 52-36 chainrings). I did add a triathlon add-on bar for the possible headwind sections and I was glad I did!

Zaradi bližine pripravljalnega kampa na Gran Canariji sem se odločil dirkati na krajši 12-urni dirki, s ciljem izboljšati moj lastni rekord trase. Bil sem zelo blizu, a zaradi zelo močnega vetra sem bil žal nekaj kilometrov prekratek.
Kljub temu je za mano odlična dirka in pokazal sem, da sem za začetek sezone zelo dobro pripravljen.
