  1. Past hour
  2. As per my other reply Dan said he was going to rip it up and people believed him. Don’t get me wrong I’m not arguing that it should have been built just Dan promised something and then didn’t deliver.
  3. Final cost to the vic tax payer was only $642,000,000 in the end but who’s counting?😂😂 Just think what you could do with that now? Oh and Dan did say there wouldn’t be any cost in canceling a legally binding contract https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/amp.abc.net.au/article/7012618
  4. Libs shouldn't have signed the contract in the last seconds before the election they knew they were about to loose!
  5. Guessing the Australian newspaper is a trump supporter. so there are 2 out there in the world now.
  6. Looks like the worst case of back acne now
  7. also, is anyone else concerned that the uptick in french cases might bring the Tour in doubt
  8. https://cyclingtips.com/2018/08/does-drafting-a-teammate-uphill-actually-provide-any-benefit/#:~:text=Drafting%20makes%20sense%20on%20flat,becomes%20the%20riders'%20biggest%20anchor. I guess there is some benefit even up steep sections. But I feel the main point of the exercise is to drive the train consistently hard so that everyone is on their limit and no one can attack. Those who are not on the team but are following also get a free ride. It is like a war of attrition, which I think has made it much less enjoyable to watch.
  9. Today
  10. Old triathlon saying, “You never really retire, just sit out a few seasons! “
  11. Rad am Ring 24hr ride, team of 4 around Nurburgring. Rained for 20hrs but great event with beer and bratwurst at the end.
  12. I sprained my ankle. Pretty sure it was Covid.
  13. No I didn't. I requested to go do something, which I have already said I shouldn't have written. I admit my mistakes...
  14. Just for those that don’t know Dan Andrews spent 1.6 billion to not build a tunnel. with a B. its why he’s not liked. Well that and the lying.
  15. Nowra sprint tri I think 2016 maybe 17 haven’t laced a run shoe or bike shoe since that day
  16. There certainly must be some, hence the way the major teams, especially Ineos/Sky in recent years. They throw 4 strong climbers in front of their leader & they drop off 1 by 1 from the front. It certainly isn't the advantage they get on the flat, but remember, they are still going close to 30km/hr up those slopes.
  17. I think you have to factor in that there is really no advantage in drafting up 10-11% froome was still there when some big names were thrown out the back already. He won't win the tour, but he has come a long way very quickly!
  18. Must have put him at about 91. Wow. Didn't realise he was that old.
  19. I’ve always said anything goes in the sandbox. but be prepared to take it. like bogfrog calling me a ****wit. I can handle it. Sadly she couldn’t.
  20. Sutho Shire old boys Pub Run 2019. Who’s who of Shire triathlon has beens and ended up at beer, wine and footy festival at Henson Park. Long stop at marrickville rsl twice too. The practice event two months earlier was good too through all Kirrawee drinking establishments, Shark Island, Bowlo, Prince, Sunday Rd.
  21. Think it was Ironman Australia 2014.... walked of the course and thought I can’t do these on no training anymore. I did, but thought I shouldn’t do so haven’t since. Could have done a pissant sprint at some point after but not much of challenge so don’t remember if I did or not.
  22. I might be one of the ones that said something before, but I'll repeat it because I feel that one person in particular took it wrong. The way I feel about it, anyone can comment or have an opinion on anything. However the context is important. If the information on which you are basing your opinion is third hand facebook shares, then I wouldn't take your opinion on a situation as particularly close to fact. But if you live there, or have lived through it, and have first hand experience and facts, then your opinion or comment clearly carries more weight. I have a problem with people stating things as fact, when it may not necessarily be. Context is everything in understanding someones statements. When @more was stating for a fact what was and was not done in Melbourne for those who do not speak english, I asked how they knew. Reading opinions on facebook is different form living it. @more lived it so could accurately state the fact based on their experience. If I sat here in regional Vic stating what information has or has not been given to migrant communities in Melbourne, it would be likely pure rubbish, unless I had immediate family there or such. The further the source form the speaker, the less likely for a full factual version. Anyone play chinese whispers as a kid? It's not rocket science.
  23. Oh very good, does that mean we just lock the Trump thread until we get a US citizen?
  24. If you have a look at Shawn Bakers Insta, think it’s shawnbaker1967, you will see him smashing a serious amount of meat. He is the over 50’s champ for indoor rowing, not sure the distance but does 4 large rib eyes, etc..... Built like a brick shit house, the total opposite body type to a triathlete.
