  1. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    I raced there - think 2013. Swim was like swimming in grass in the middle section Had a bad fall in the rock garden (that they changed the next time for the Sprint Distance ) --- stopped on the bike leg to let a black snake cross the path.

    Can’t believe they were still taking entries on race morning Cash cow

    4.5 - 4.6km for 2nd run ?
  4. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    THInk it was the Gold Coast city council that made the call - I heard they said on Friday - that no one was allowed swim - after testing the water. Think they have strict risk assessments. we missed our wave start as it seems everyone left early - so we went just before the teams left - so the bike course wasn’t congested on 2nd lap

    I heard some guy talking about the swim being cancelled - and a duathlon instead - due to the rain - stormwater with visibility or something— don’t know how much authority he has but

  7. Waterproof Tape

    Hey I was reading this thread yesterday --- so I tried some KT tape ( had some here ) -- as I was just experimenting to cover part of my feet - for some shorter races coming up ( don't want to wear socks -- feet got badly cut into on Robina OD --being so hot kept pouring water over me -- hence shoes got soaked and my feet were rubbing ) ---- went for a long run this morning --and didn't get "hot foot" like I normally do ---- have to do more running with the KT to see --- but wouldn't it be great if it somehow stopped it

    Don't think they have the correct points in the Overall -- as I've only been listed for one race -- so I've emailed them -- it's correct for the SD

    We were watching the start of the men -- think the first wave was white caps -- 3rd guy that came out of swim - must had only done one lap of the swim -- had a yellow cap on

    Canberra OD qualifier was same weekend and also Tweed Enduro is next weekend - so that would probably impact on numbers
  11. SunSmart Worlds

    In 2009 at the GC Worlds - it was a wetsuit swim -- so it must have been still on the cooler side

    It just clicked about this — I knew it was going to be cold but didn’t correlate that with being wet and cold
  13. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Yes -- notice a lot cooler than it has been 11-24 degrees -- have packed a jumper Thinking I won't pack my wetsuit ??as it's been 34-38 degrees there lately
  14. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Yes I was happy about that as well -- was thinking of just doing it Sunday morning - then no hurry to get to GC on Saturday
  15. Swim Skins

    Just wondering if you have good core -- do they make much difference.?? I have a dare2tri one and I'm not sure if it makes much of a difference...unless the brand makes a difference
