    5150 Port Mac

    Agree a national series would provide structure for sure especially for those pros not at ITU level to focus on.

    5150 Port Mac

    This week Ironman VC will be running its event on the 5150 Port Mac course, this is a new course going onto rouvy. Has Port ever hosted a major olympic distance competition? Do you think this is something they are looking at in the future? I really wish Oly Distance racing would make a come back, most of the major amateur events are over the half or full in Aus.
  3. I think ive found issue so anyone racing today dont make my mistake: Rouvy has two apps i used rouvy workout not rouvy AR and its not got all features so prob translates speed different ill test theory see if im right. The AR app wasnt showing my course so i tried workout one. Now i deleted AR app and reinstalled and the course is there . the AR app has a lot of updates to the workout app but i had no idea of this till now And apparently it impacts speed a great deal and the whole system. update: rouvy customer service have confirmed using their workout app has a different algorithm and therefore I should have raced on their AR app. shame ironman didnt mention this instead said just race on rouvy.
  4. This event is all over the place if you go through the splits and average power to weight there some bizarre outcomes like i biked 3.1 watts a kg and my time same as most people bike 2.4 watts a kg and a mate biked 3.7 watts kg and was same time as me. Are people just height cheating?? I rode smooth power wasnt like i went super hard early and super slow late. Anyone else looked at the results on rouvy and noticed this same outcome?? Like no reward. Other who biked same average w/kg 6 -10 mins faster then my split. It is a shit show!
  5. Just did the bike leg for vr10 and rode 254 watts so 3.3w a kg for a 1.09 ride. Now the guy leading my division rode around 54 mins, i looked him up and last half ironman rides a 2:20 at nz 70.3 now i ride a 2:22 at western syd and 2:28 at cairns last season, but online he is 15min ahead over 40km! Hope he gets DQ
  6. Strange no press release from Tri Aus about Townsville yet.
  7. I have a stages PM gen 3, I also have a left / Right leg imbalance is about 46/54. Is there a way to get my stages left crank single PM to broadcast at say 108% to compensate for this? till now I just add approx 10% to my reading on the head unit in my head to get the accurate number but would rather have it right. My kickr reads accurately and I have used friends equipment to work out my Left/ Right imbalance.
  8. Its not just how much power you can push, its also how you interpret the 12m rule... there a lot of guys with low power and good IM splits on the bike. I think Port has least drafting actually with the hills and mixed terrain making it hard to bunch up.
  9. It comes down to what you want to use it for, the Madone is a racing machine very aggressive, the Domane less aggressive, likely a better ride on shit roads. I have the Emonda, its sorry a classic frame geometry, good for the climbs and 100km training days. If i was crit racing, the Madone be better, if I was riding sportifs often for fun the Domane is best, the the emonda is somewhere between.
  10. I have been to watch Cozumel also but not raced it, and yes it was very cool, Cebu was a bigger crowds and a more interesting course. They really do it well.
  11. Look up e-go they are cheap if you go depot to depot. I had a bike melb to Bathurst $45 this week, I paid and extra $50 for some insurance.
  12. In an email just now about port in sept 2020 IRONMAN Australia provides 40 qualifying slots to the 2021 IRONMAN World Championship, held in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. No news on kona but suggest its not happening
  13. The email says Kona and 70.3 qualification more info next week. I think cairns will be off their schedule is pretty jammed now for spring and im eager to see what is happening with Kona itself Aussies may not be able to travel then.
  14. A mate of mine called Ironman today see whats going on with Reef to Reef and Cairns IM, they have said they want to have a decision by friday, and apparently Busso Half is Oct 17 rescheduled. So that gives an indication I think Port likely be October also, not sure if Cairns can be pushed very late due to Jelly Fish danger.
  15. Stage 1 Restrictions PM saying 6 months likely. IM aint happening before oct on these rules.
  16. Wow! Some people cant stay of strava hey!
  17. Im out in the country if we go full lock down all the cyclists here will sneak down a country road or two, there is plenty of road and its going to be bloody quiet .
  18. I cant see travel restrictions having any impact come spring the spread will have been fairly extensive domestically. But just generally maybe everything wont be back to normal and Kona and 70.3 worlds cant proceed anyways. So it could be a tools down start fresh next season approach to the worlds. although this could be an opportunity for WTC to move the Im worlds if they cant use kona for dates issues or qualifying number maybe they move it? Pretty harsh on those qualified already with flights and hotels and Kona dream $15k holiday paid for.
  19. Back to IM talk: Im thinking sunny coast and west syd will have NZ worlds slots and we we will have one Ironman on the east coast in the spring with no half attached to it.
  20. How about some personal responsibility here , no one made anyone go do the race, everyone had the same information as the event organisers. That week things evolved very quickly and the government had not advised them to shut down. Everyone accepted risk and had free choice to stay home.
  21. Hopefully the AUD$ is better in 2022 also, terrible now.
  22. Listening to Pete Murray FB broadcast last night it sounds like the Aussie group is working to get new dates, they want them to run at some point. The emails about the legacy are interesting for sure, I think that is a smart move, get more legacy through this year and clear more space for qualifiers 2021.

    Cairns IM 2020

    That's interesting, I like the old original course from Yorkys when they made everyone run the first 20km into town through the cane fields, it was very lonely out there and a great course sort of like Kona queen K vibe before hitting town for the final 22kms.
