  1. Lake Cathie is a little further than 15 minutes to transition. It is 12 minutes from Lighthouse beach. 13 if the traffic in the morning is bad. it is closer to 30 mins. But still a great place to stay. Just remember that the road closes around 6 am and doesn’t open again until 6 pm. So if you have family they would need to be prepared to go into town all day or stay at Lake Cathie and see you on the bike.

    This is 1 of this issue with the media reporting. They say so and so misses x weeks from the Judiciary. So for the same offence you can get widely different weeks on the sideline due to loading etc. He was charged with the highest possible charge for a dangerous throw. Which is 500 points (ie 5 weeks). He got a 25% discount because he hasn't been to the judiciary before and a further 21 point reduction for the 21 minutes he was sent off for. If this was JWH he would have been facing 1100 point which is 11 weeks on the sideline or 800 with the early guilty plea. I just don't see how Crotic's tackle was a grade 3 ie the worst possible dangeruous throw. The player puts his arm out and makes contact with the ground then landing on the back of his neck. The worst tackle is when 1 player pins the ball carries arms and a 2nd player put his hand between the legs and lifts and drives the player into the ground. Not a single momentum tackle like Crotic's. This should have been a grade 2.
  3. 35 Slots for each of the men and women fields would be a good number. With probably quite moving to the 70.3 to try and qualify for the worlds. Could be a good year to do the full.
  4. Buy a top of the line Ventum and get an automatic slot. You will still need to pay for the slot and active fee.
  5. Did Erin Baker win this race?
  6. Reading that 2nd article. Why would Bridge, Angling and Billiards sign up to the IOC. Is this a long term position to be included in the Olympics? People think Cycling is dirty, 1 in 10 Anglers caught with illegal substances.

    3:02 not what he was hoping for. Although a month out he was using the old pulled hamstring exuse. That is simply page 1 in the triathlete book of excuses. He could have got more creative.
  9. West Pymble would also be fairly close.
  10. Good response overall. But I really dislike the comments around roads being paid from general taxation. But they then say that many bike riders also own cars which pay rego. This is a silly argument as it is paid from general taxation or not. It also opens the argument around those that own multiple cars or cars and motorbikes having to paying multiple rego.
  11. It is a 10 year bike I would expect to have changed over all the components serveral times. With the exception of the cranks which would only needed chainrings. You would need to consider where in the life the current components are however. Chains and cassettes need to be changed regularly and aren’t expensive.
  12. Yep that looks like a 2008 model, it is the model that Chrissy Won her frist Kona on. It is old but it really I still ride mine and have no issues laying down quick bike times. The question really is what do they want from the bike? Group rides etc or a bike that they can race longer distance triathalons with.
  13. @trinube what does this comment mean? “If you can't pass someone, especially when they're required to sit up and let you by, then you have no business attempting the pass - you're just drafting” I am not sure I understand the bit where you say sit up and let them by. Until they have their wheel infront I would be continuing to push. Nothing stopping the person in front accelerating.
  14. I never said that riding into the draft zone to pass and actually making the pass was drafting either. But if you fail to make the pass in the required time it is drafting which is a violation. Which is my whole point. “Drafting” by definition can happen under many circumstances. “Drafting” in not cheating it is a rule violation. The intention is what makes the rule violation morally wrong.
