    Flu shot

    I’ve had it for 15 odd yrs or whenever it first came out as the wife was a child care worker. I got it today because I fon’t want the flu, enough reason for me

    Canberra Sri Chinmoy Duathlon

    Thanks peeps, the photos of it look pretty straight forward but I’ve been tricked like that before. Used to love the Sri Chinmoy long course weekend in Canberra back in the 80s and 90s, shame they went away
  3. Anyone done the ACT off road duathlon in the Botanic Gardens? just trying to find out how technical the bike course is as I have almost no skills. Cheers.

    My new bike purchase

    Mine was a Speedwell Mustang with the 3 speed shifter on the top tube and twin headlights on the front rack, generator driven of course. The kid across the road had a Malvern Star Dragster with the little Sturmey Archer thumb shifter, we both had streamers in the ends of the bars. So cool, in 1969

    Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Does a first reserve have any chance at all of going? What would have to occur for that to happen and do they have to buy suits etc now or wait until they are possibly selected

    Commonwealth games chat.

    Still have a pair of Thompson Timeless Transition Pedal Adapters in the shed, only been used twice, they only work with tiny racing flats, no chance of the Hokas going in.

    All those medals are my wifes and daughters, we’ve all done whatever training we feel like, totally unscientific but been able to keep it up for 30+ yrs, seems to yield results

    Your 1st race

    Stuart Gee from WA won that 85 race, don't think he was heard of again. Annette Ricardo was the womens winner, she lived here for a while, I was too scared to talk to her tho, she was on the magazie covers at the time

    Your 1st race

    1985 Royal National Park near Sydney. About 10th last out of the water yet couldn't see my bike I was so delirious, got to the top of the first hill and flatted without any spares, was dead last by this stage but the bloke manning the drinks table gave me his and I passed a few during and the first part of the 17km run before dying in the arse and walking bits of the second half. Not last but not far off. Made amends a couple of years later coming 13th, the year Moroney won. I miss that race
