  1. Bike Rego (Christmas fun)

  2. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Hm interesting. I know they asked for it. See TPs above. I guess they didnt bother too much about actually checking then.
  3. So froome is a drug cheat

    Salbutamol works by acting on receptors in the lungs called beta 2 receptors. When salbutamol stimulates these receptors it causes the muscles in the airways to relax. This allows the airways to open. http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/medicines/allergy-and-asthma/a8340/salamol-salbutamol
  4. So froome is a drug cheat

    It opens up the airways, so better deeper breathing i think
  5. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    When u accept ur position, you have to send through an info package that includes a copy of ur passport. Well, had to for rotterdam. I assume they check from that
  6. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Yep they check. But only when ur accepting the place on the team. Not sure if they look for dates and see if u were an aussie for qualification races
  7. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    If you dont make the team (as opposed to changing ur mind) i think u get $50 of ur $75 back
  8. Helmets - Should we have to wear them

    Was other general comments about reasons not to wear a helmet. And u mentioned you may or may not wear one. Nevermind.
  9. Helmets - Should we have to wear them

    Yeah sorry should have had a sarcasm thingy. Was reference to an earlier comment abou not wearing a helmet cos it gives u helmet hair and a sweaty head
  10. Hand back your Pro Card

    This thread was started as pros not good enuf to ace pro. By page 2 its bagging age groupers as not good enuf to race age group. Too funny.
  11. Hand back your Pro Card

    Then u should know ive never misrepresented myself or my achievements. And thats how this thread derailment started, with ruley and stikman. So can u let it go and get off me and back on topic?
  12. Hand back your Pro Card

    Maybe some jealousy or sour grapes getting around. Not real consistent with trying to get people into triathlon.
  13. Hand back your Pro Card

    And also not understanding. Age group racing isnt exactly commonplace im the sports normally covered in small town newspapers. They can hear it but if they dont get it, they wont repeat it
  14. Helmets - Should we have to wear them

    Still gives you hat/helmet hair tho!
  15. Hand back your Pro Card

  16. Helmets - Should we have to wear them

    Sure. But commuting is not the same as tootling along the bike path at 10kph for a bottle of milk with a basket on the front - which is the scenario being tossed about as where helmets shouldnt need to be worn. Commuting is different. More kms, traffic maybe, faster speeds etc.
  17. Helmets - Should we have to wear them

    I dont have a reference to hand but im pretty sure studies have shown that the slow "safe " cyclng ur all talking about for helmet free doesnt convey any direct health benefits such as preventing diabetes. For that you meed intensity . For which most still advocate a helmet..
  18. Hand back your Pro Card

    If they are, and it helps promote triathlon, whats the problem?
  19. Hokas now at Podium Sports at DFO

    Yep. Them hokas are all fat-sh#t-crazy
  20. I did an all out 30min run on the weekend. After good warmup. Felt not too bad. Av pace 6:07. Max hr 176 F##k it all
  21. Points required for world age group team

    They didnt do the total last year, so i had my own spreadsheet and yep, trawled through the finish lists. Not that hard though with a bit of an understanding of excel. Good improvement this year
  22. World Age Group team 2018

    This is from the TA website. Seems pretty straightforward AGE GROUP CATEGORY SELECTION RACES AND AT THE ITU AGE GROUP WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS: Athletes will compete in the selection races under the Australian Competition Rules. Athletes will race each selection race as your age as of the 31st of December 2017. When Australian athletes compete at the ITU World Championships you will race under ITU Competition rules. ITU Competition rules note that athletes will race as your age as of the 31st of December 2018. To be awarded selection points athletes will race in the selection race under the Australian Competition Rules. Triathlon Australia will then take the athletes race day time and place the athletes time into the age group category which they will race at the 2018 world championships (ITU Competition Rules). The athlete will then be awarded selection points in there ITU race category. Please note due to the change in age group competition rules between Australia and the ITU athletes will not automatically receive selection points from the place you received on race day at the Australia selection event. Athletes will be moving age groups post the selection event due to the ITU Competition Rules.
