I have gotten a lot of questions about my Sa Calobra sub30, I didn’t realise a time on Strava was that big of thing 😳
As most people know I spend a lot of time at Mallorca and I always loved the climb but I have never actually tried to go as fast as possible. Usually it’s just one of the climbs during a long ride.
When I decided to try to go sub30 the plan was to optimise everything - full race set up, assisted by coach and take the car out. Unfortunately sickness and travel made us change the plans. So I decided to just go and give it a try.
It was a great day with favourable winds but half way I realised it was going to be really tough and at the last section it was clear that it was going to be on the limit. As you can see on the second picture I sure was on the wrong limit 😂 A little disappointed I decided to give it one more try the next day. Winds where not as good as the first attempt but I stripped my bike, put on a race suit, optimised the nutrition and with 1W higher then first attempt I manage to get on the right side 🔥
So what did I use:
▪️The climb master - Trek Emonda with Bontrager Aeolus 51 and R4-tires.
▪️Fuison Sli speed suit.
▪️Maurten hydrogel - intake of 100g carb/h + 400mg caffeine.
▪️The highly ventilated Spectrum helmet from Rudy project.
▪️The power needed was nothing crazy- 5.03/kg (weight with clothes and shoes)
