When I get my ICO I'll program the route instructions into it and then go out and ride it with an exact start time and so forth.
If I was doing it manual, I would use a TSD alegebra calculator to solve for time at each route instruction and note it on my roadbook. The calculators are on the web.
The winners in 2006 practiced for months to get it down. I think the manual entry winners did too.
Since I can't really ride much over the winter, I'll wait till Spring.
