Some people use a rule of thumb where 100 m of climbing is like adding an extra km. That puts you at around 39 mins, depending on whose watch you believe.

Attackpoint is less generous with 4:19/km so it will remain a mystery until the Big Day!

P.S. Congrats - I hear you came home with hardware. :)

Oh is that what that second per km is all about?

That was Scott on the podium, not me. Would have to build a few more spots to get me on there. ; )

Gives me 4:11 at 220m. That seems pretty accurate based on training so far and I’m pretty sure Scott’s watch would take a better measure of climb than mine. I’m hoping to improve a bit in the next three weeks...but there is room for a reasonable doubt here for sure.

Sounds like all you need is a different watch then. ;) Nice job considering that you're still a few weeks out!
