Nice work... a sub 30 min is what dreams are made of! However, I'm a seasoned healthcare professional and by rights you should have had a heart attack within the first 8 minutes! 239 BPM is huge... is the Garmin correct? If so, you're a machine. Well played, sir!

The Garmin's go a bit potty for the first few minutes until there is some moisture under the sensors

My previous PB was 32min, always starting at the top of the big descent, I realized I could shave a few minutes just by starting the fast lap at the hydro works as I could 'rest' on the big descent on the way down, so I took it easy for the first half until I got there, had a GU and then went bananas. I still think there's another minute or so I could gain, eg not shifting out of big-ring at the front on the Pinch climb near Alambie, but the track is pretty torn up now so will have to wait... God knows how the others got a sub 25min lap in though!

@andyfev 239 is the garmin playing silly buggers, always happens at the same spot (top of Roseville Chase), my true HR at that point would have only been around 150. I do love how flat the "racing" HR was during the hot lap, 186max. (I'm 29)

After they finish the current works anything over 25 minutes will be slow and you'll be able to do it on a roadie. Awesome!
