Well, I had a real scare, this morning. Did a metric century on my trainer. I was doing the No-vid Tempo: 2x25 with Z###t in the background for scenery. Rode in Erg mode until the last 20 minutes when I switched to level mode because I wanted to put in 1 sprint effort before I finished.
I had finished over 97k with less than 3km left. My legs didn’t really want to do a full out sprint, so instead I did a power ramp up before and during the sprint to the sprint line. I was up to 720w shortly before I reached the line and was just standing up for one big final effort when my bike went “bang!” I thought I had snapped my chain or worse. I looked down and found my chain had come off. I tried to pedal it back on but with no luck. I got off and found my chain wasn’t just off, it was also twisted and torqued. As I tried to get it back on I thought my rear derailer hanger had busted.
Took some work, but I managed to untwist my chain and get it back on and found my derailer was safe. Was able to get back on and finish out the ride. Phew! Well, until my wife walked in with less than .5km left to let me know my daughter wasn’t feeling good. But I got my 101km ride done!
