  1. Race is on tomorrow morning. Stunning scenery around here weather forecast changes every 4 hours and is different across the whole course. Looks like 12c here and then 6c up on the plateau after the first (40km) climb. There's still snow up there and a good view of a glacier as you ride along... T1 is a complicated setup. You swim up the fjord to this point We drove the bike course in reverse. 5 climbs with two being big and around 7-8%. Plus side is a 50km descent after the first climb and around 30km descent into T2. Out of T1 I think there are 4 tunnels to go

  2. Thanks guys. Interesting that they use live tracking for all athletes on the bike and run (use the quarq quollector) - not sure of the investment cost but if Norseman can do it why can't IM? Mentioned at the briefing they had 3600 applicants and have 245 racing tomorrow.

  3. Good Luck tomorrow and enjoy the scenery - the Noggies are famous for random support in the middle of nowhere, so lap that up as well.

  5. Got this email at 4.30am this morning... Welcome to Isklar Norseman – simply the ultimate triathlon on planet Earth We have reserved a slot for you. We urge you to read our Race Manual once more to be sure that you understand the requirements and rules of the race. Odds of getting in were 1:10 in the end, can't wait for next August now http://nxtri.com/ Anyone else get in? Unlike WTC there are no age categories so need to be in the first 160 at the mountain check point to be able to go to the top.

  8. Maybe the association spreads them out to promote travel, and therefore make the races more attractive to local councils & businesses to sponsor & support. I'm sure no local council is going to stump up support that is going to attract 1000 locals and 100 visitors

  9. Yeah I get that, but making it harder to access for a state like NSW seems like just plain stupidity, shouldn't OUR association be making smart choices both athletically and financially to make these races available to the maximum number of MEMBERS to get the best athletes to turn up and also get big, full races to keep the sport viable. Or is there an agenda that I'm not aware of?? With numbers in decline, making racing more difficult to access wont help grow the sport.

  10. So by not "pointy end" I mean unlikely to podium but I would expect in most races to be in the top 25 of my AG (depending on the size of the field of course). And I did come third once! Although out of a field of 5...
