    Interesting helmet
  2. Sorry, i didn't get the very specific situation of yours on which you were commenting, at the first instance Understand now that your particular situation is quite different than, possibly, most.
  3. Because it just makes all the insurance premiums higher, and then harder with more hoops for legitimate claims. Not to mention that the company might not have the funds or ability to backfill in a short term position, so the remainder of the workload falls to those left. So I think it does affect me.

    Swimming to work!

    Apparently the swimming bit isn't illegal. But if he posses a threat/risk to shipping and boat users he could be removed. Also says he's been thinking about it for years, but never done so as he wouldn't want to get in the way of a boat. Slow news day?
  5. this is specified in section 3.1.1. on drfating
  6. calf sleeves are OK. Compression socks are not
  7. You're confusing a Protest with an Appeal.

    Cheddar Gorge climb

    I watched that whole clip looking for cars. Saw one at 5:27. Then read your post again. Oops, wrong clip obviously.

    Challenge Roth 2019

    Did I hear right when they said they only had 2 cameras out there? No wonder they aren't showing much of different parts of the race

    Had a go on Rouvy. Short and steep, standing will be needed for short pitches. Might start to bite on the second lap of Std after 2 laps in the sprint the day before
  13. NIce one mate. Yep, if you feel comfortable when you start, you're going too fast. And just keep moving. Your gut can go awry but don't force it, keep moving, and things will pick up. Great work!

    Shark at Manly swim?

    Bugger that. But I've got toe sucking carp, nibbling shrimp, chomping yabbies, and unmentionable floaties coming out of illegally dumped houseboat toilet tanks........

    Shark at Manly swim?

    Put a shark in the dam........
  16. Thats why I changed mine to a bit of elastic. It fits between the lugs of the Hokas so doesn't rub on the ground - and easily replaceable if it starts to wear. I think the strap would only work if your shoes have the arch gap, which Hokas don't.
  17. The ouch was getting it off after 35 hours or so! Back on topic, these are the gaiters I use. Brilliant. Lycra upper and rear, tough front. Keeps the debris out, water off the front from vegetation, but don't sweat and no chafing on the lower leg. https://www.moxiegear.com.au/product-page/moxie-ankle-gaiters Mine are an older style but i'd just replace the strap/buckle with a bit of elastic like I did. Makes for easy on and off.

    Shark at Manly swim?

    Sharks typically hunt from below, and see a shadow/shape above. They wouldn't differentiate colour in that view - black wetty or white skin. Especially in low ambient light conditions of nighttime, where they would just see a shape above. Part of the reason surfers get taken for seals or turtles - similar shape from below.
  19. About 3 rolls of tape and bandage!
  20. For me the crap goes down the sides of my ankle, so the tongue gusset means nothing.
  21. Always with gaiters. A brand called Moxi I think

    Using Google street view where it's available and it doesn't look that bad. As ex said, the scale of the profile is deceiving. Not big climbs. Having said that, I'm on a roadie as one one for draft legal Sprint and Standard.
