    Cairns 2018

    I cant remember feeling much effect of wind on the bike last year, has my memory been faded by the copious amounts of beer consumed since last year, or did we get a good year??

    IMOZ 70-74 Men's battle

    Congrats AP on a great day out yesterday, we have never met but I have certainly seen you at many races and enjoy reading the light hearted jabs on here surrounding you. I may fit into the control tower malfunction area, I can swim 1.05-1.10 dependant on conditions, can ride 5.45 - 6.00 but always fall apart on the run and end up 5+ hours, netting me a PB of 12.18 Be interested to know how you structured your 4.38 yesterday, run steady pace from km1 the whole way through? Walked aid stations? Start fast and hold on?

    IM Cairns 2017

    yeah I'm in, #6 in total for me but 1st Ironman other than Port Mac. So from those who have done both, how do they compare, I know the distance is still the distance but what should I expect?

    Soooooo which bike?????

    Thanks all for the replies and advise, I'm thinking a 27.5 dual suspension is the winner for me, due to the purchase of a new TT before Port Mac I am limited in new bike funds to $1500, anybody know of anything around?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Soooooo which bike?????

    That's the deal I'm looking for, no such luck with the locals though, may have to cast the net further afield, anybody in the Northern end of NSW have a LBS with stock they want to unload at ridiculously reduced pricing??

    What about brands, anything better than another, or even better, anything to avoid Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Hi all, decided to purchase a MTB for a bit of cross training to break up the road rides, I have no idea in the current market other than it seems to have vastly improved since my last foray into the dirty world! I will be doing mostly single trail and fire trail type riding, no downhill racing, I guess cross country is the best description, I will also do a couple of dirty tri's, I am a heavy bloke (95kg) so need something that will take the abuse!! What should I be looking at?? Happy to look at used if anybody has something to get rid of? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Port Roll Call - TRANNY TRACKER

    I asked the ladies at the 2017 registration desks on Monday and they said the 70.3 would be run in conjunction with the Ironman next year, it remains to be seen if they knew what they were talking about or not I guess!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
