  1. Do you have a link to that?
  2. Van Vlerken Calls out Ryf for not attending a few pro functions and getting special treatment Worth the call out or simply sour grapes? ** Can't workout how to grab a few quotes from the article sorry** Full article: http://yvonnevanvlerken.eu/index_htm_files/Newsletter Yvonne van Vlerken Juli - 2 2017.pdf
  3. To my knowledge it was none of my current athletes or previous athletes getting tested recently here in Melbourne (from what was stated above about the weekend testing) They must have moved onto a different group
  4. Jeebus.. Pretty sure not a look you'd want in your tri club.. The pics in the Herald Sun clearly have his tri club... Damage Control much?
  5. This individual actually lives in Sydney mate
  6. I know that they are looking at doing a basic test like a road side test when driving to give a prelim test.. If that comes back positive, then you go through the whole testing system. This will enable the testers to do a lot more tests with a lot lower expense which will be great for the sport. I've no idea what PED's they will be able to pick up, however I think it is a great idea.
  7. I think you can just report the person (I don't regard them as athletes if they use PED's) to the relevant governing body.. ASADA do it here: https://www.asada.gov.au/report-doping I'm not sure about any other countries
  8. I'd expect someone to have those improvements over that time frame without any assistance... 3 years - 1hr 15min is def not unreasonable My point is more, why would you need to take PED's when you should expect those gains with consistent training?
  9. Steve McKellar took the last spot in that age group last year
  10. Run Volume may not be the correct answer.. knowing when and how to run will make more difference
  11. Write down what you are looking for in a coach - Do you need face to face, some regular contact or are you purely self motivated and purely need a plan with some guidance here and there? - This will give you a good idea of the direction you go in looking for the right coach Do some research on what different coaches offer, contact a few to find the best fit.
  12. In my honest opinion... The longer you give any plan, the better result you're going to get.. Where I find a lot of athletes go wrong is that they don't give any 1 program the chance to work for them. The right plan will get you fit, help you drop the weight whilst working towards the bigger picture later in the year. You will go through different stages on training, from strength, speed, base & endurance (not in that particular order) which will make your body more durable for race specific training closer to the race. ** FYI, I'm not expert.. just have some experience in this area**
  13. hahaha, I've been in hiding... Staying at a different address every night...
  14. Has anyone thought about this? I wonder if you could get tested if you were not a member of TA (or any relevant governing body) outside competition? If you purely bought day licences, would that mean you could only get tested on race day? ** edited to remove the bold **
  15. It is great that Age Groupers are getting tested.. Just go and test a few different ones.. lol
