    Should Pro's get Prize Money in Country Races?

    I really believe thay sponsorship agreements are a great thing. Having KPI's makes things very straight forward for both parties. Obviously, building a friendship is also super important but having guidelines of what is expected removes a lot of the grey zone. The races where Ironman/Challenge gives me accom + transfers, there is usually an expectation of some community involvement such as handing out medals, school visits, pro panel etc. These things are good for the community and hopefully inspiring young people but also great for us as no matter how you view it, it's exposure and another thing that I think could be a selling point to non endemic sponsors.

    Both organisers and athletes need to work together to create value. There's a number of ways that can be done in order to benefit the local community in some ways and also help grow the event. It needs to be a more refined model of doing this than currently though. Investment, by both athletes and organisers, in a proper plan with clear guidelines of what's required would likely be much more helpful for both parties in creating a good ROI and driving value.

    Elite Drivo

    Yep, I've got the Drivo! I had a tacx neo, loved it but sold it due to my Dimond not fitting. Stopped riding the Dimond, pissed about for a while on the fence of whether I should get a new one. Got a job and decided to stay in Melb for winter so went about research. The drivo ticked all the boxes and was a little cheaper. Couldn't be happier with it! Did 180k on zwift a couple weeks ago and actually enjoyed it..

    Cairns 2018

    I've had a bike fit with local guy here in Melb. I think the issue is that 180-200k rides here include stopping at lights etc. Quite a bit which means that I probably never truly ride 180k in the aerobars without micro recoveries. There is also the possibility that the issue is deeper than that. No racing till August now for me, so I'll be spending time with a physio I trust to work on loosening uo my chronically tight back. Will likely need to look at my setup in the office too in order to make sure sitting at the desk isn't exacerbating things further

    Cairns 2018

    Long old day for me. Was in a great position but at 150k my right hip completely seized. Rode the last 20k at about 20k/hr alternating between out of the saddle and single leg with three stops to try and stretch it out. Decided to start run and see if it would loosen off.. it kind of did but by that point I was just digging the hole deeper and deeper. Put far too much work in the last six months to not at least finish it off. Evidently, if I want to do IM properly something in my bike position/flexibility needs to change as yesterday was debilitating.

    Realised last night that I forgot to pack my trisuit.... between work and uni exams I just rushed packing. Time to be that bloke buying a race suit the day before the race!

    Cairns 2018

    For those who've done it, will I be able to drive to Palm Cove from Cairns on race morning? If so, will my support crew then be able to drive back to Cairns or are the roads closed? Cheers!

    Of course, Swim was shorter sharper 150's and 50's building to about 1500m pace. Ride was 276ap and 281np for 5.05hr (some IM pace work in there at 300w and a few times up box hill surging up to 70.3 pace/340w) Run was 4min/km

    Up and coming athletes...

    I think we could all agree that guys like Josh and Appo have already well and truly cemented themselves at the top of the game

    Up and coming athletes...

    Thanks for menion. Quite a few I reckon. I'm not well across the juniors any more but know some of the younger long course guys. Look at top 6 in Geelong, think Josh might have been the "oldest"? Quite a few guys in that 20-24 bracket racing pro at a similar level. A big step up to the next level for all of us though. Jake Montogomery is probably the one who has done it so far. Kieran Roche had some very solid results last year too..
