But... does anyone follow cycling here? 43 km/h is a poor average for a 20 km TT, just like 24 km/h is a poor average for a normal training!!
To give some perspective, I´ve done 40 km TT on that sort of average with normal road bike and clothes (no aero helmet, no one piece lycra clothes, no lycra boots, no high profile carbon wheels, no TT frame), and I am well under average in TT in amateur field, as I´m a 60 kg bones bag hopeless on flat roads.
In order to make things cristal. Do you know who Alberto Contador is?. I guess so.
One day, Alonso was thinking about to create a cylcing professional team with Contador as leader, because Alonso admires Contador and they are friends.
Alonso loves cycling (he's said many times that if he were not a F1 driver he had been riding a bike), and one day he went out to traing with Contador's team. They though that Alonso was going to fall down, but surprisingly enough they day a normal training day and Alonso finished as cool as a cucumber....
