  1. 60-64 age group 9:46. Wow

    I remember Rob winning the Opera House Biathlon back in 1988 or thereabouts Also qualifying for Sydney olympics aged 43. He did the bike in runners attached to those base plates that never took off.
  2. This is what happened to Jan

    Jihadi!
  3. This is what happened to Jan

    One bad result and it’s because he’s vego. Seriously!
  4. This is what happened to Jan

    Jan was able to keep Seb in check for the past two years and given the relatively benign conditions yesterday I don’t think it was his bike split that put him in the hurt locker. The guy has gone 7:35 at Roth - punching out a 4:10 bike split before running 2:35. sure there is extra pressure being the two time champ but I doing think those three Uber bikers worked him over like Macca and the boys did to Crowie back in 2010. I just think he had one of those days that the Big island throws at everybody at some stage. He’ll be back and able to stick to the Uber bikers, whether there is 1,3 or 5 of them - like he’s always been able to do. Then he’ll run away from them with a low 2:40s run split ... I’d say he’s got a few more Kona victories in him still ...
  5. What training did you do today?

    Got through the first two legs - the brick session but bailed on the swim this arvo. Way too tired. Darkest Africa here I come!
  6. Your go to bike trainer sessions.

    Zwift KOM efforts trainerRoad 20 minute FTP tests. applying oneself to a TrainerRoad 8 week program. TrainerRoad also have a bunch of excellent 30 and 45 minute sessions if you are time crunched and can’t get in the usual 60-90 minute session ...
  7. Tranny Kit! Any interest?

    I’m in pain just from watching that. Ouch!
  8. Kona race day thread

    Overlooked in all this excitement is Andy Potts. 40 years young. Huge personal best (and if I’m not wrong absolutely smashing Dave Scott’s over 40 record time for Kona). First American. Equal best personal finish for a very close 7th. Chapeau Mr Potts!
  9. What training did you do today?

    Since last Sunday’s ‘long’ run above I’ve done 3 x 45min trainerroad sessions on the kickr, 1 easy run, 2 pool swims and the Hills Tri Club Gatorade series Sprint Triathlon at the Riff yesterday afternoon. Main problem this past week has been rough guts. Must have been something that both my wife and I eat late last week as we both came down with it. Skipped one training run and had to make emergency pit stop in the race yesterday. Feel much better today though - my day off. Tomorrow morning have a 90 minute ‘sweet spot’ ergo / 30 minute brick before dawn and a 2km swim in the afternoon. That will be the last structured training for me for 2.5 weeks as I’m off to Africa on the 6 am Emirates flight on Wednesday. Hope to get in a few pool swims at hotels in Dubai and Egypt and maybe a few 20 minute runs as well as I’m away. ...
  10. What training did you do today?

    Thruxton. Is the Triumph cafe racer named after the circuit?
  11. This is what happened to Jan

    All things being equal Frodo is my pick to win next year. Nothing that anyone else achieved yesterday changes that. GOAT
  12. Kona race day thread

    Pretty sure AP is aiming for sub 12 next year when he ages up ...
  13. Jacobs will win kona apparently

    I think that’s a cryptic reference to Macca pulling out of the 2008 Ironman at Havi
  14. Kona race day thread

    Today was the first time in 28 years that Mark Allen’s winning time of 8:09 was not good enough for top 3. Only 4th 😎
  15. Jacobs will win kona apparently

    He has spooked himself. Freaking out months later about having a few beers at Xmas. Never going over 145bpm heart rate except for 7 second bursts. ... it’s sad. That said, PJ did hang tough and respect the course as the defending champion back in 2013, just like JF did today. Frankly - and as an armchair bloviator - I reckon he should just step away from the sport for 6 months and practice being normal. Eat some junk food. Drink some beer. Go surfing. Then, around March next year, if there is still some fire in the belly knuckle down for some old school hard work. Dig out those training logs from 2009 to 2012 and start with those. Aim for Busso or Arizona at the end of next year and if that works then and onl6 then think about Hawaii again. If not, then learn to rest easy on his laurels. He has a great record up to 2013. Enough!
