    Perth. Racing, training, etc?

    It does hug the freeway. There are two sections, <100m, where you are on the road and there is only one road crossing, the rest are tunnels. You can also do a ~40km loop on a good bike path on Roe Highway to add km to the ride. The bike path ends at Pinjara Road. This is a link to a training ride of 180km that I did on the path a couple of years ago. It is flat and very boring - great mental training for Busso. :). https://www.strava.com/activities/758898660

    Fastest Ironman branded race

    If you are asking about fastest Kona qualifying times: http://www.coachcox.co.uk/ironman-world-championship-qualification/ Elsewhere on his site are the finishing times for all IM races.

    Busso 70.3 swim cancelled

    A friend send me a photo of a tree that had been blown over about 100m from Transitions. My FOMO from not being there this year has gone. Hope everyone stays safe on the bike.

    IMOZ 70-74 Men's battle

    Does AP's number 17-058 indicate that this is his 17th IM Australia? Good luck to these amazing guys on having the physical and mental strength to still be racing.

    Langer got the the gob. Great choice. He will bring some discipline back into the team. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-05-03/justin-langer-confirmed-as-new-australian-cricket-coach/9721858

    Prince of Bahrain caught cheating. Oh dear

    I think that it is largely caused by the number of people on the course. In the early years at Busso when there was <600 drafting did not happen. Now when you 1500+ on the course with a big bunch of people coming out of the water 55-1:10 drafting is very difficult to avoid. At Busso there are no hills to break up the pack and so the packs stay together. It is the same problem at Kona. You get a big pack of elite AG athletes coming out of the water together and bunches are going to form. The advantage of being a 1:20 swimmer and 6+ hour cyclist is that you only have to worry about drafting when you get lapped.😀

    IM Texas on now

    Could be a point/money thing too. Texas is 4000 points and Port 2000. 5th at Texas is 2090 points and first at port is 2000 points.

    Flu shot

    Should we stop having vaccinations for polio, measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox, ..... ? In Australia, influenza on average causes 3,500 deaths, about 18,000 hospitalisations and 300,000 GP consultations each year. Being fit and healthy does not stop you getting the flu, however it can minimize the symptoms.
