    There are some sick people out there:

    Dregs alright. My former boss was casual riding with her husband down the south coast NSW a few weeks ago. She turned around to see where he was and a pedestrian (AFAIK) snotted him off the bike. Tragically the brain injuries were too significant for her husband and the life support was turned off. Just gutting. "A senseless death causing immense grief"

    Sunglasses and Watches

    I use Bolle Safety glasses also. Extreme smoked in my case. $25 from Blackwoods http://www.bollesafety.com.au/reference/smoke-1661101 Edit: Actually these are now superseded by the Silium which drop the weight from 34g down to 21g. Basically the same as the Extreme, but with a polycarbonate frame http://www.bollesafety.com.au/reference/platinum-smoke-lens-1676102 Watch, I just wear my Garmin 935, but some of the Fenix's are nicer looking. If I'm going somewhere formal I still wear a proper dress face watch.

    c02 on planes?

    There are differencs between carriers. The OP was in relation to Jetstar specifically. For me I use Jetstar with the MTB because of their weight policy and also into Geelong (Avalon) where they are the only carrier. Other than that, I prefer Virgin. Virgin's policy is that you can carry up to 4 CO2 bottles, either checked or carry on, but you just need to let them know at check in. https://www.virginaustralia.com/au/en/plan/baggage/dangerous-goods/

    You need to go onto their website and check it carefully re carrying dangerous goods. They will then link you to the Qantas website where they will tell you how to get a permit to carry these items. I think you send an email to the dangerous goods email address at Qantas with your flight booking and they will retern email you with approval for 12 months or until the end of the year to carry whatever it is that you carry. In my case it was 4x16g CO2 canisters. Put the canisters into your checked baggage and show them the permit when you check in. GDG009.16 CO2 Cartridges up to 28g or 50ml.Lun Spdf.pdf

    TRI NSW Interclub Comp

    In the Central West we have been running interclub racing for as long as I've been doing triathlon at least. My opinion of it is that is has been excellent. Everybody loves racing at different places and against different clubs. Yes, there is on course rivalry but amongst all of the clubs we are all good friends, get on well and help out where possible. Its a great day to travel, race, have a BBQ hosted by the host club and just enjoy ourselves. Its a great thing in addition to club racing. To increase the inclusiveness, the interclub rounds now run standard and enticer (half points) distances. There is also a handicap system so the smaller clubs can be competitive against the larger clubs. As about the only club racing that we have to pay for ($10 I think) its also a great money raiser for the clubs. To mix it up even further each club has its own variation on the event, with those including a pools swim using Grand Prix format. Cowra: Run, Pool swim, ride, Pool swim, ride, run Dubbo, River swim, ride, run Bathurst: Run, pool swim, ride, pool swim, run Orange: Lake swim, ride, run Mudgee: Run, pool swim, ride, pool swim, run
  14. I agree, I think Macca is an very intelligent, shrewd and savvy operator. He is much more switched on than any sniper frrom the sideline.
  15. It also depends on the courses topography. I don't think even splits are actually even splits in my local marathon.
