    Winter Gloves

    I have the same issue with my hands. I bought Castelli Estremo Winter Gloves a few years ago. I will usually use these if the temp is below around 6 or 7 degrees depending on how long I am going to ride for. Once you get in the low to mid teens you will start to get very warm. Not sure where you are but these have been great down to around -2 degrees. Doesn’t get any colder here. You loose bit of dexterity but can push buttons on the Garmin etc ok. Getting some food out of your back pocket can be tough. Maybe that has more to do with the jackets I wear.
  2. from the website "athletes will swim in the boundless Mulan Lake, which is clear as a mirror". Is water that is clear like a mirror good?
  3. Only thinking about this event the other day. Not living in Sydney anymore so can't get to it, but loved this TT. Such a great course and well run. I guess this is where this type of sporting event is going end up. Too much red tape, so everyone will stay inside on their ipads.
  4. Unless they have Bio passport doesn't mean a whole lot. You would have to be very unlucky or stupid to test positive.
  5. 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.

    All things NRL

    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.
  7. 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.
  8. Buy a top of the line Ventum and get an automatic slot. You will still need to pay for the slot and active fee.
  9. 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.
  12. West Pymble would also be fairly close.
  13. 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.
