IMC 2019 will be my first IM and I haven't biked in or around Whistler. Biking has always been my weakness. I did get a new (to me) bike in the fall though, so that should help, but the real problem is that I'm mildly obese. I need to drop a lot of weight in the next year if I want to finish any IM, let alone one where I climb 2600m! I was in the best shape of my live in Penticton 2016 and still only managed 30.1 km/hr and I was humbled on every climb. Fucking nailed the run though.
I had to defer this year because I hurt my achilles in training. Looking at the strava files from the bike is definitely giving me motivation for next year. I found the 2016 Penticton bike challenging that that was 770m over 120km. I'm no mathmologist, but I think 2650m over 180km is going to be harder.
