Over the years, I have learned to use huge gears. My last race was 3 hours long and I stayed in the big ring, and the smallest 2-3 cogs the whole race. After the race was over, 3 people came to me and told me how strong a rider I was staying in those gears for so long. Problem is, I didnt win. Out of about 170 riders, I was around 25th. I noticed late in the race a few guys pass me in smaller gears. I personally feel like Im wasting energy "spinning" in a smaller gear. What could I do to improve this, if any? Maybe my huge gears wore down my muscular endurance? I dont know, Im baffled by my peerformance last weekend.
