    But we don’t know what is NP was. This chart only refers to NP and TSS. If he rode an VI of say 1.18 as in rory-dognz situation than his NP would be an IF of around 0.65. so for someone slightly less than 6 hours this is in a normal range. Just look at the run and see how even it was to get some feedback.

    2020 70.3 World Championship

    Ok, this has got me a little excited about tris again.

    Prince of Bahrain caught cheating. Oh dear

    So in this situation wouldn’t you have the ‘ completitors’ that race in say 11:30 -13 hours catching all theses age groups ‘racers’ in age groups where this is a qualifying time. This would significantly change the dynamics of the race for these people. How do you then police these people also riding in the pack if there are no TO’s around.

    I have the same accomodation as RBR. Except for a couple more days after. Luckily it is fully refundable until like August as I won’t be needing it now. When I booked it really was a good deal. If anyone wants to take over I am sure the hotel wouldn’t mind.

    That could be over sprint and standard. I wouldn’t like to be the person coming 70th on the list and paying the processing fee hoping that 45 others don’t apply.

    Oh no, I didn’t realise the application process closed off on Monday. They are saying no late applications. Well I just stuffed up the whole year.

    9 weeks till Ironman Australia

    I know the organising committee is look at future bike options. I think a fantastic change to the bike course would be have the turn around at the Old half turnaround at Lake Cathie (before the old ghost road). Then head back through town and out on hasting river drive and up the old hwyway. The beauty of that course would be that you keep the hills but also add some reasonable TTing on ok road surface. You also would have less need for marshals and less impact on the community down in Dunbogan (which is where a lot of issues are). You could also send the 70.3 riders the other way and down hasting river firstly to break it up.

    Got 404s, what next?

    I’ll wait for Alex to come on and blow some of these misguided comments around benefits at certain speeds etc. You need to look at what you are wanting to achieve. Going from a 404 to an 808 will save around 20-25 seconds per 40kms. Depending on whether you are riding at 30-40km avg and yaw angle. This saving will be slightly more from a disc especially with greater winds. If you are wanting to look good go with whatever you think is sexier. if you want to go fastest go disc. if want best bang for your $ go wheel cover. Although I know you also ride TT’s so you may not be allowed to race these at certain level of races. I think you will lean towards option 1.

    Mooloolaba Start Waves

    Why do people not put the calf marking on? Is it deliberate so others don’t know what age group you are in. Or is it something else. Should at the very least be a start stop penalty.

    Mooloolaba Start Waves

    I started at 7.08 and rode through most of the field. There were only a handful of people blankly wheel sucking. There were some long lines of people especially on the way back. But most of these had fairly large gaps between riders maybe not 10m in all cases but a good few bike lengths.
