  8. Kona race day thread

    Yes mate I been here 5 times and this is the coolest I've ever felt it here by far I spent most of the day driveing up and down from hawi ( yelled at you a few times )keeping the aid stations stocked and again not as hot and not as windy , the wind gets far worse then what was happening yesterday we stood at mile 17 (road marker) which is where the crosswinds are at their worst watching you guys go up , and the guy who has worked at this race forever and lived on the island 🌴 all his life said the same still not easy on the decent though , especially at the speeds you top blokes are pushing down there simply amazing

  17. Jacobs will win kona apparently

    Don’t have to go too far to get away from the madness 15 mins ride from Kona this morning quiet , huge shoulder , safe as and no triacathaltes as it’s a little bit hilly :-) and its not “Kona”
  18. Jacobs will win kona apparently

    Yes but at least you know they are coming with their AK47s by hearing all the banjo music lol
  19. Jacobs will win kona apparently

    Totally agree with this This is not really the case , trucks everywhere , but at least they are only going 80kph but if you are gunna ride the queen K start the ride after the airport , mayhem before that with the road works going on even worse that ever
  20. Jacobs will win kona apparently

    This is the problem with all the experts (keyboard capatian they may be called ) when they start knocking evything kona there is a hell of a lot more to the big island than Kona and it doesn't take much out the box thinking to enjoy it do you your swim ride or run early and eliminate 90% of the problems you all are complaining about
  21. Jacobs will win kona apparently

    Problem is 95% of everyone in Kona at the moment is riding or running or driving or walking on alli drive it's freaking madness cyclist behaving like lunatics, walkers and runners going all directions and if Hawaiians drove like Aussies on the way to work then no body would make it to race day alive get out early if u have to do you TT efforts on the bars flat out pre race and don't expect to do them through traffic , cars , runner , dogs hitchhickers etc on alli drive at 8am plain stupid dont ride 2 or 3 or 4 abreast down the road and hold up traffic not giving a flying F where there is a perfectly good bike lane idiots its just madness
  22. Jacobs will win kona apparently

    Not right here if you head south the riding is arwsome , can get a little busy if your coming back into town from 7am to 8-30 but further out u go it's amazing head east up a crazy hill the road and riding is insane , best u with get anywhere head north along the Hawaii belt Rd and again best riding anywhere , but will get busy coming back in or out at peak times but still nothing like cities in OZ and 95% of the drivers and very happy , carefull and courteous if ride over over and around Hilo , best riding u will find anywhere , but all these rides have some hills and some nice steep bits but the road surface is fantastic hot mix so unless u are a beach road rider then all is fine everywhere
  23. Jacobs will win kona apparently

    Right again i never ride on the queen K , the shoulder is great but full of glass and volcanic rocks the cut your tyres pretty quick and the traffic is full on
  24. Jacobs will win kona apparently

    Your right 😊
