Some times things are just a drag...

Nice picture - Looks like a bit of a frosty moment...

Do tell!

No not frosty, just puzzling as all were frustrated...

In simple terms the reduction in drag that was created in the wind tunnel had gone and even the opposite occurred with it increasing from the first field test. The day was a great reminder of how a few little things like slight seat adjustments and body shape under fatigue had really had a big negative effect of the drag. It was an eye opener and Raoul and Jono were both frustrated along with my disappointment that we had been improving in all other area's but the CdA/Drag. This day brought it all home just what a challenge it is to make a 1.96cm athlete slippery on the bike.

What was great though was we gain real insight into a few things around set up and the feeling I have to go for to ensure this doesn't happen again.
