WHAT'S ON MACKY'S DASH: For downhill days and unstructured rides I have one screen for duration, distance and time of day, another with altitude, total ascent, total descent and temperature, and a final one with max, average and current speed.
For intervals I have one screen with lap time, power, heart rate and cadence, and another with ride time, distance and total ascent.
PRE-RACE RITUALS: Growing up in a large and punctually-impaired family, I learned that it was much better not to have a pre-race ritual, because then it didn’t matter when there wasn’t time for it to happen!
FAVOURITE THING ABOUT TRAINING: Finishing and feeling like you’ve accomplished something.
FAVOURITE THING ABOUT RACING:Testing myself against the best racers in the world.
