  1. Don't get me started on Sean Kelly and his "general class-ment". It's either general classification or classement général you imbecile!
  2. Baker did mine and my wife's fit on both roadie and TT. Highly recommended.
  3. I totally agree. The axiom, "don't try anything new on race day" also applies. Sticking a different set of wheels, tyres, valves, tubes and another cassette on your bike a week before your big race is just asking for trouble. Especially with all the issues associated with frame clearance, break pad position/composition. Why bother?
  4. Are they worth it? I keep looking at them and with the tilt kit it comes out at $1650. That's just silly, but they look so nice!
  5. Yeah, but if you KQ, you'll need to buy armwarmers anyway. Unless you plan on doing nothing till October.
  6. Hang on. You're telling me that Cairns has more slots, an easier course and less competition? Why am I trying to get a spot at Port? I'm such a dullard.
  7. I've got a legitimate reason for using the visor, I promise! My position on the bike is such that when I'm looking up at the road ahead, I'm peering over the top of a normal pair of sunnies (even big ones like the Jawbreaker), so I don't get any sun protection. That's all sorted with a visor.
  8. I've got one. It fits well, but the visor attachment isn't the greatest. The plastic tabs can break if you're not careful. This happened to me at port in 2015 and the visor fell off 10km into the bike leg. They may have improved this over the last 2 years though.
  9. Isn't it about time for the annual "bull sharks in the Hastings" report?
  10. Nice. I'm staying at the Waters Edge so its an even shorter walk to transition. Any idea where the 90km turnaround will actually be?
  11. I've just had an email saying they've made some alterations to the course, but no detail. Anyone have any inside info?
  12. #509 for me
  13. New and interesting the regatta centre?!
  14. 4 weeks to go. So skinny, so cold, so tired and so over it.
  15. Women's 10,000m is one big positive result waiting to happen. The previous world record, set in 1993 by Wang Junxia, a known doper was 22 seconds faster than the next fastest ever recorded time. No one even comes close to that time for 23 years then all of a sudden the record gets smashed by 14 seconds and half a dozen people get close to it. Add to that, the Kenyan coach getting sent home for posing as an athlete during a dope test.
