    No More Soft Bike Cases On Hawiian Airlines

    Had my travel agent contact Hawaiian airlines about this and they are allowing soft bike cases for the Ironman event only but not for any other time of year. It’s now noted on my ticket that I am a competitor and the soft case has been pre approved.

    Insurance for Kona WC

    Yep, 13th in 35-39 with 10 slots. Rolled to 14th or 15th i think.

    Insurance for Kona WC

    Tried doing a search of previous topics but couldn’t find anything. I was lucky enough to qualify for Kona at Cairns last month and am trying to sort my travel insurance for the trip. What have people done in the past who have raced there? Specifically, cover for during the race. If I was to have an accident of some sort and be carted off in an ambulance to the hospital for treatment, does the USA one day membership cover this or not. Struggling to find something that will cover me during the race.

    Port race day thread

    Tracker is rooted but worked out off Shortis' run splits, that if you add all the splits down to 38.1km this adds up to their 21km split roughly and then the 42.2km split is there 2nd 21km split. Clear as mud!!! Doesn't help if you are trying to work out where someone still running currently is. That's a rough calculation - it would mean shortis ran a 1:33:00 for the first 1/2 and a 1:15:00 for the second 1/2. negative split of 18min!! doubt it, but hey closest I've got to working the thing out. I've got a headache now....

    infinite - converting gels to infinit

    hoping you could give me a bit of guidance. Have just purchased first pack of go far and am just trying to calculate how much I need to take per hour to cover what I use to take with my torq gels. Previously for a half IM id take 2 gels /hour which would give me 224 calories plus Id also consume approx 500ml electrolyte and about the same in water. Go Far gives me 280calories per 600ml (2 scoops), so am I right in thinking that this is equivalent to 2 and a bit gels? I currently do a 2hr 20min bike split so I would go through about 5 gels. Therefore I would need a bit over 2 bidons of infinite plus water. Or by adding an extra scoop it would boost each 600ml up to 420 calories? Hope this makes sense. I plan on using gels still on the run. Is it as basic as that to work out?

    kona dvd box set

    Just wondering if anyone has purchased off the official ironman website the 9 disc box set of the world champs from 2004-2012 for $99. Is each disc the cbs coverage (highlights show) that we see each year on tv? Also when I tried to place order they wouldn't give me a shipping cost. Is there one and if so what has it cost? Also are the discs compatible with aus dvd players?

    IM Cairns start times

    Some BOP riders better put their lights on their bike seeing that the bike cutoff time will be 630pm. First 20 odd km of run could be very lonely running in the dark through the cane fields.

    pre race ride in cairns

    Hearing that riding on the bike course proper is a bit risky due to traffic, what are the safest roads to ride on during race week? Locals advice???

    Flying Tiger with bike

    Looking at return flights from Cairns to Melbourne after Cairns IM with Tiger and notice that they charge $80 extra for "sporting equipment". I'm assuming my tri bike is classed as this but if your total weight of all your bags, including bike is still under the excess limit do I get away with not paying the extra $80? Also, are Tiger ok to fly with in general. Heard of a lot of bad experiences from people, mainly with cancellation of flights, customer service, etc.

    IM Melb course is up

    Swim course is different. Don't see how opening up both lanes on Nepean Hwy will get rid of the camber as it slopes from the centre to both sides.
