how do you break the wall?
Here's my problem. 2 year ago, I recorded a personnal lap record of 43,7 sec at the local track. It's about 1 sec a lap off the pace of the top 3 rider in race mode. I only do track days and do not race. Last season my best time was 44,8 and I strugle to get fast lap time this season too. I have the same bike, same gear. The only thing I added was 25mm Ohlins cartridges. I have a TTX shock.
What should I do? I know suspension well enough to be the track side suspension technician, I know the track very well. I start to miss the fun of beating my own times. I now prefer to ride in slower group with my friends to help them get faster.
One thing I noticed is that I often ride alone and get overtaken once or twice each session.
Do you have any tips for me? I thought about getting a data acquisition system to analyse where I can improve. Is it worth it?
Please help me...
