  1. And they're all easy compared to Sean Kelly on Eurosport.
  2. Bummer. That hurts. ( Well done anyway on a great race)
  3. I saw it on Bein Sports channel on Foxtel on Saturday 27th May around 9pm, then repeated on the following Wednesday. Can't find a mention of it now on the Guide. Amazing how a sunny day makes the coverage at Port seem so much better. Imagine if they ran the Race in April.
  4. A pioneer & a nice guy to boot. Can't believe it. RIP.
  5. Mmmmm, maybe there's something in this.
  6. IMOz 2013 Stevenson,Scott BIB 562 AG 35-39 Male Overall place 300 Finish time 11:00:03 Swim 01:03:39 Bike 05:27:20 Run 04:21:16
  7. A quick Google search shows a Scott Stevenson taking a selfie on stage with IronMike at Port Mac May 2,2016. Finished 6th in the 40-44. Not listed as a Finisher in Kona in 2016, so one can assume his positive test on 25th Sept 2016 meant he didn't get a start. How does a guy from Dubbo end up getting random tested by WADA unless someone local has tipped them off. Bloody great I reckon. Only feel sorry for the guy that should have got his spot for Kona last year.
  8. She is smashing all of us.
  9. C'mon mate. I can barely run "Aid Station" to "Aid Station" as it is......and now you want them to be 5 km apart. Geez, I'd have to do some training to meet those standards.
  10. Do over-70's get a discount? ( No Active Fee ? )
  11. Ayto, take heart mate. It could always be worse. For the first 7 years post-separation, the CSA was calculating my Child Support based on the information provided by my ex-, that I had zero contact with my daughter. At that stage, it was in fact alternate weekends and a couple of hours on a Tuesday afternoon. Once I discovered I'd probably "overpaid" around $20k aftertax dollars, I asked the CSA if there was anything I could do about re-adjusting the balance? Of course, if I had "underpaid" they would have insisted I made up the shortfall, however, they said there was nothing I could do about paying too much. LOL. Don't give up hope that someday things may get better. Miss 12yo cut me off in 2011, and wouldn't have any form of communication with me for a bit over 5 years. Then, out of the blue I got a phone call from her in Port Mac last year, and we speak on the phone and Facebook every week or so, and catch up for lunch every month or so. I was a bitter, angry man ( internally, at least) for a long time and my lovely, new wife couldn't ever get me talk about my feelings with regard to my daughter. Eventually, I just managed to stop letting it hurt me so much, and got on with "Living in the Moment". The next stage will be trying to re-integrate my daughter with my "new" family and my parents ( she is the only granddaughter). One day at a time. Keep up the good fight. If nothing else,always be true to yourself.
  12. So with the M65-69 rolling to 4th, can we presume AP had already qualified, or is he not going this year? ( surprised if so).
  13. So did anyone go to the Awards gathering or did people just rock up for the Very Famous Beer Mile? Whilst I wouldn't say either gathering was anything to get too excited about, not going to either a Carbo or Awards "night" just leaves me feeling a little disconnected from the event this year. At least I got to see a few familiar faces at the Legends Lunch on Friday. S&^t, WTC would have saved themselves a stack of money, as I didn't even redeem the $30 meals coupon. So was the Awards a success that will be repeated next year? I presume a lot of Clubs may have turned up for that part of the proceedings? Anyone go?
  14. I picked Gianluca Brambilla, but later when I reviewed my team on the Transitions League page he had an "x" next to his name as a non-starter. As I can't find him listed on the Velogames list of available riders I presume he was a late withdrawal. Still worthwhile checking your team prior to the gun going off. Usually you need every rider you can get.
  15. Chapeau.
