Assault 2011: Personal Record (Not the One I Wanted)

As I've posted on this blog, the Holy Grail for the Assault on Mt. Mitchell is the golden 6-hour mark--broken once by me in 2007 out of the 15 Assaults I have registered for (with the t-shirts to prove it: http://bit.ly/kOr3Hg).


The 2011 Assaults started on a cool and overcast morning, and I sat close to the front of the start nervous about the anticipated rip-roaring start motored by multiple pro teams and one of the strongest collections of top riders I have seen at any Assault. I was also concerned that the 2010 pace had wrenched me useless after rolling through the first 50 miles in two hours.

This year was no let-down for the opening pace; we were averaging 25.7 mph as we churned through Pea Ridge. Unlike 2010, however, the pack was pretty dense--not strung out--and except for a few dropped bottles, a few crossing the yellow line, and a rough bridge crossing, this year's front onslaught was safe and fairly manageable.

At the second section of harsh rollers of Pea Ridge, I made my first big decision of the day. I was displaying about 171 bpm on my heart rate--a solid 17 beats below my max--but I knew that frying myself not quite half way through the miles of the day, and less than a third of the time, was not going to be wise. So I drifted back through the pack and literally rolled over the last section as the final rider dropped at that section from the front group; I could have accelerated and re-attached, but decided to be conservative.

At that point I wasn't sure if I was being smart, but within a few miles I was joined by about a dozen riders, most of whom helped us maintain a small pack all the way to the Hwy 80 climb--this seemed ideal since the group was creating a pace well within my ability and I was taking pulls and having a safe and brisk ride into Marion.

Looking back, two things were probably really bad signs--as mile 55 I began to cramp (thus I cramped for 47 miles yesterday--the new personal record I didn't want) and I made it to the top of Hwy 80 on two 24 oz. bottles and one 20 oz. bottle. Yesterday was perfect for me, cool and damp, but I think it lulled me into underhydrating, something unusual for me because I know that cramping is one of my key weaknesses.

My secondary group navigated the dangerous curve, Bill's Mountain, and the relentless rollers into Marion, where we crossed by the campground in about 3:19--well within my target for having a good time. Most years, I ditch any group and grab some new bottles here, but this year I stayed with this group, and we picked up a few others we caught as we turned onto Hwy 80. This meant my riding the Hwy 80 climb on one remaining bottle, which I did.

I didn't hammer Hwy 80, but I kept a steady pace and felt I wasn't losing important time; according to Strava, I complete the nearly 6-mile climb, averaging 8 mph and 218 watts, well over a minute faster than last year.

I stopped at the rest stop before the parkway and talked briefly with my friend Tim Sprouse, who asked how I was doing. I looked at my Garmin and noticed I was just a couple minutes over 4 hours for the day with only the parkway and the park left--only about 16 miles to do in less than two hours. I was optimistic.

But from the parkway on, my power and heart rate data do not lie--I simply had nothing over the last 16 miles.

The 2011 Assault turned from a potentially 6-hour breaking day to a death march. I like the cool and was at least glad to have the low temps and the fog/drizzle because I had to ride just below the cramp threshold for well over two hours--even then pedalling through persistent cramps.

Being passed and dropped over and over made for a rough mental experience as well.

I finished at 6:22 (123rd), well outside my goal, but realistically at the upper end of my most typical finishes that hover about 6:10-6:25 (a nice lesson in the value of modes over outliers and averages). And for many climbing centuries over the years, I calculate my place/total starting the ride; my typical percentage is around 10-12%, and even with my struggling this year, my place is in the top 14% (trying to see the bright side).

So I was disappointed and frustrated because as with last year, I feel I am stronger and better trained than I was when I did break 6 hours.

But, as I was wallowing in my own disappointment this morning, I thought about standing at the top and watching the suffering and the ELATION. I had several of my good cycling friends walk up to me SMILING, even beaming.

Over and over, they talked about this being their first time, and I do realize that the 2011 Assault was a great cycling day--well organized, well run, and the ultimate in self-torture as recreation.

  4. Syria's main opposition bloc and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) rebels have agreed to co-ordinate their action against President Bashar al-Assad.

    The Syrian National Council (SNC) also said the FSA had agreed to cut back attacks on government forces, after their first meeting in southern Turkey.

    Analysts say the FSA, formed by army deserters, had posed a dilemma to the bloc, which urges non-violent tactics.

It goes to prove that competition keeps everyone honest. However, those customers who are "locked in" to a vendor, need to organize and band together to create the right leverage with vendors who are hell bent on milking their customers for all their worth in the maintenance dollars. Start the movement with your user groups or other industry trade groups. If you fail to organize, well, you'll know it when you find yourself locked in.

  38. hydraulic equipmenton hold productsThe first 7 tunes are all from the same recording session, at some point in 1996. "Beat Down" is an early track of ours, recorded at the same time as our first 7", and it appeared on a limited tape compilation, the name of which escapes me, but also on the comp were some of the earliest released recordings by Modest Mouse. Porridge was the last song we ever recorded at our very last rehearsal, it's just a live demo with overdubbed vocals, but came out really well, and further points towards the direction the band was moving in had we stuck it out.

This is the High Line Park, once an expanse of derelict elevated railway that was sentenced to death by demolition, now reinvented as a pathway. From Gansevoort Street in the former industrial hub of the Meatpacking District, it runs north as an uninterrupted mile-and-a-half-long promenade through artsy Chelsea and the Garment District to 30th Street, invigorated by art installations and more than 100,000 indigenous shrubs, trees and flowers.

    The name means “Big Snow Mountain” and for much of the year, this massif lives up to its name. However, when the snow melts, the hiking is brilliant. Daisetsuzan is Japan’s largest national park, covering more than 2,300sqkm. A vast wilderness area of soaring mountains, active volcanoes, remote onsen, clear lakes and dense forests, Daisetsuzan is the kind of place that stressed-out workers in Tokyo and Osaka dream about on their daily commute. Virtually untouched by human hands, the park has minimal tourism, with most visitors basing themselves in the hot-spring villages on the periphery.

  76. The Spanish Constitution of 1931 meant the beginning of the Second Spanish Republic, the second period of Spanish history to date in which the election of both the positions of Head of State and Head of government were democratic. It was effective from 1931 until 1939. The Republic " was the culmination of a process of mass mobilisation and opposition to the old politics of notables." According to the historian Mary Vincent the Constitution envisaged "a reforming regime with an explicit and self-conscious view of what modernising Spain should entail. A secular state operating according to the rule of law with an admittedly ill-defined sense of social justice would open the way for an educated body of citizens to enjoy 'European' prosperity and freedom."

  78. The French Third Republic (French: La Troisième République, sometimes written as La IIIe République) was the republican government of France from 1870, when the Second French Empire collapsed due to the French defeat in the Franco-Prussian War, to 1940, when France was overrun by Nazi Germany during World War II, resulting in the German and Italian occupations of France and the Vichy France puppet government.
    Maurice Larkin (2002) argued that political France of the Third Republic was sharply polarized. On the left marched democratic France, heir to the French Revolution and fully assured of the power of reason and knowledge to create a better future for all Frenchmen and all mankind. On the right stood conservative France, rooted in the peasantry, the Church and the army, and skeptical about "progress" unless guided by traditional elites. Adolphe Thiers called republicanism in the 1870s "the form of government that divides France least". The Third Republic endured seventy years, making it the longest lasting government in France since the collapse of the Ancien Régime in the French Revolution of 1789.

  81. The system consists of a hierarchy of leagues, bound together by the principle of promotion and relegation. Clubs that are successful in their league can rise higher in the pyramid, whilst those that finish at the bottom can find themselves sinking further down. In theory it is possible for a lowly local amateur club to rise to the pinnacle of the English game and become champions of the Premier League. While this may be unlikely in practice (at the very least, in the short run), there certainly is significant movement within the pyramid. The number of teams promoted between leagues or divisions varies, and promotion is usually contingent on meeting criteria set by the higher league, especially concerning appropriate facilities and finances.

On retirement he was raised to the peerage, with the title of Baron Bradwell. After his death (grave pictured), allegations were published about his long-term role as an MI5 informant, a KGB agent, or both; however, the extent of his involvement with these agencies remains uncertain. Driberg never held ministerial office, although he rose to senior positions within the Labour Party and was a popular and influential figure in left-wing politics for many years. After leaving Christ Church, Oxford, in 1927 he joined the Daily Express and in 1933 began the "William Hickey" society column; he later contributed regularly to various left-leaning journals.
