  1. Pretty sure the 1st prize was $25,000 when Dragan won
  2. Dunno if it is still on You Tube but there is/was a video of the first Forster Ironman, 1985. Didn't compete but watched it, some good footage of Marc Dragan and Bob Telfer

    Welcome back, you don't know me but my wife was on stage with you at the 2009 Worlds, both winning your age. We are in Orange, they have changed the bike course from the worst road in the district to the second worst but there is little choice. If anyone is up for a challenge with a view, try the ride up Mt Canobolas, it's about 15km from town and about a 5k climb on the bike, pretty steep in a couple of parts but easily doable on a tri bike. Good luck everyone.
  4. I've bought some HOTSHOTs for the same reason, haven't used any yet, waiting for a long hot ride, has anybody used this product?. Apparently they taste revolting....but if it works..
  5. We met Gabby at a cycling event earlier this year, she told us her story, lent us her pump, what a positive person, hope to see her again!
  6. My kid worked for that Mick Aplin kid for a couple of yrs landscaping. Mick had a mtg stack 6 months ago and is lucky to be alive and walking, had a halo on for 6 months, it came off last week. I have the results of every Orange race, but they are down in the garden shed, can look old stuff up if you need it. There was an official Orange Triathlon, which was won by Tony Unicomb and a few other luminaries, the race won by Metters was one of several put on by a group of local race promoters. BTW Aplin went on to beat Crowie by 5 or 10 mins in a later race, he now lives a block away
  7. That was the last Canobolas Tri Roxi so the Jabbs record still stands as does his 57 min bike split
  8. SInce 1985, never done an Ironman snd looks like I never will!
  9. I'm in for the 1 30 7. Don't know of any others but we are fairly local. no mention of prizes or presentation in the blurb.

    WTB Garmin 310XT

    Don't suppose anyone has a spare Garmin 310XT kicking about, mine jumped out of its bike mount yesterday and disappeared. Thanks in advance.
  11. Thanks Paul, forgot about the Bundeena Be There race, only did it once, drove down from Orange arriving at 4am or so, it rained the whole race, the surf was huge for a country kid, Unicomb was leading but hot a flat and had to walk back down the long steep hill, everyone had fun then we all drove home. Great days
  12. I'm really old but I remember the Royal National Park Tri, Wollongong Tri, The Sydney Tri, Triple M Tri,Macquarie Towns, Leppington Duathlon, Penrith ride n stride duathlon series, Parramatta Park duathlon series, Sydney ITU race, equations under the Harbour bridge, Penrith Lakes long course, and there are others I'll think of when I'm nearly asleep probably, so yes it isn"t dead but they"re about to turn the machine off

    Frodo out?

    Just read on Twitter Frodo has a stress fracture in his hip and is out of Kona. Wide open now if it’s true
