    Cairns 2018

    That noshirtsteve Guy is giving someone grief for cheating..... the same guy got disqualified At Hervey Bay 100 a couple of years back for wearing floatie shorts under his swimskin and tying to hide them at t1......... certain types of people let this junk bother them, others deal with their own square meter.

    Ironman Aus 2018 - The good, the bad and the ugly

    I hope your mate is ok, so worse case scenario say he couldn’t work ever again is it ironman or the port council who will be copping the lawsuit? There were a fair few spots with paint on them, kind of admitting there’s a problem and not fixing it if you ask me.

    Ironman Aus 2018 - The good, the bad and the ugly

    Good- the vibe in town pre race and during the day -the weather was spot on - the hills early seem to break the race up a fair bit -the rolling start worked pretty well for the first group (only about 12-14 guys in the front swim pack) -aid stations seemed to be running smoothly all day Bad - the swim in port never feels like you know where you are going exactly -yellow bouys in the water and yellow surf lifesavers on boards makes it tough going -congestion on the run with slow 70.3 competitors walking together - the road, we all know it’s bad but some of the massive lumps in the road were the direct cause of some pretty bad looking crashes, was discussing this today with a guy, as some of the lumps have been sprayed with paint who would be at fault if the crash victim was to chase someone for compensation? -I wish they started earlier, anyone after 11:00ish spends part of their day in the dark! That would do my head in

    Prince of Bahrain caught cheating. Oh dear

    The part that winds me up the most is how Triathlon, as a professional sport is so poor that the Bahrain endurance athletes choose to be sponsored by him and pump up his tyres so much. Obviously he pays well otherwise they wouldn’t be recording him videos before races, putting up his splits saying how amazing his highness is and all that jazz. The Bahrain endurance social media went a few months ago, I couldnt stand the circus around “his highness” ill follow this story in slowtwitch to see if there is any response from any of the Bahrain crew.

    Coffs pete is going around for ironman number 671 or somewhere around that number, he started his bike training with a three day 260km gig for charity last week.......... looks like things went swimmingly

    Hawaii 70.3 - 2019

    You are pretty much on the money mate, it’s been a combo of misfires at the right races and getting the hard qualifying races right! Keep throwing darts at the board, the execution gets better and one day it will happen

    Hawaii 70.3 - 2019

    That cuts deep mate, missed Kona slots twice in the last two years by 3 or less minutes! Haven’t done Kona but have been over twice when the old man has raced, the 70.3 is essentially the far half of the Ironman ride (Hawi and back) and the run is around the fairmont orchid golf course. Atmosphere wise its a little different, the run is rather lonely through the whole 21 whereas October there is love from spectators for the first half. The 70.3 is a very slow course, the ride is never flat, not steep hills but long graduals so you need to get used to pushing big gears if you want to ave a decent power figure. The run is always crazy humid, this was something I never figured out until last year, apparently the golf ecourse is hosed down profusely for the week before and the grass is left longer to prevent damage from all the foot traffic, come midday it’s not much fun in the middle of a par 5 fairway with the hawaiian sun on your back. the pre race atmosphere is similar to the Ironman on a lesser scale, it still attracts the peacocks of the USA tri market who choose to wear nothing but tri suits for the duration of their trip however come race day they are happy with a 7hour finish time as long as the can get a shirt, pay for their photos and brag to their “buddies” how they “stomped the cycles” etc etc etc. If you choose to go you won’t be disappointed, both last year and this year I’ll be doing the race off port ironman build and it’s certainly one of the 70.3 races that the strength work really comes in handy, it’s a strength not a speed race.

    Hawaii 70.3 - 2019

    It’s well worth the trip, I have been to that race 4 times and been to The big island 8 times, going again this year, myself and my old man take a group over for this race annually now (38 last year 36 this year) any questions send me a message or if it’s easier I’ll give you my number and i can let you know where to start
