"The Kilo" is a simple event - ride as fast as you can to cover 1000m from a standing start.
The reality is that it is a tough event for such a short interval. The first 40s is horrible (but you feel strong), then next 40s is demoralising as it hurts even more (but you feel weak).
Turn up at Activ and state loudly - "I wish to test my legs on the kilo" - we'll run you through the event from there on out!
Over coffee it was suggested that the "Kilo" could actually be how long it takes you to eat a kilogram of icecream.
We have not completed specifying the rules for this event - Jacob Walding is doing repeats to determine if it is safe for the general public.
We recommend that you try with a Fast Start strategy, and see how that feels. You can certainly try this event a few times!
So at 100s (1m40s), 10% of energy will have been produced via ATP-Pcr (sprint), 35% by glycolysis (anaerobic), and 55% by aerobic production.

We will record your completion time, average power and let you know where you rank in your division.

Be careful when stepping off bike as there is a tendency for jelly legs - even for such a short event!
