    Busso 2019

    Not directed at you, but the negativity in general on here re Busso.

    Busso 2019

    Nah it's got nothing to do with being a local. I just don't get the constant negativity. Busso is shit because it's flat, Cairns is shit because the swim is a choppy mess, Port is shit because of the road surface, Kona is shit because of the wind and heat, Lang Kwai is shit because of the humidity etc etc None of these races are shit, they all have their unique challenges.

    Busso 2019

    Busso seems to get an inordinate amount of criticism. An unusual level of bitterness directed at it, that other races do not seem to get. And you could pick apart any Ironman. They all have their unique negative idiosyncrasies. I liked Cairns, I'm a positive person and enjoyed Cairns, but plenty of problems with that race, never heard anyone say anything good about the actual race in Kona, atmosphere great, race shit, similarly with any race in Asia or anywhere else hot or anywhere else cold or windy or hilly. So sure, bag Busso, but if you're going to do so, perhaps do so in comparison with a race you do rate. -

    No idea why it was so much faster this year than last year. 9.00 winner 45-49..
  6. Try Lakeside in Joondalup they have the Nike Store, Rebel Sport and Jim Kidd. Have you tried the Pegasus or Pegasus Turbo?

    Nah. Would be good if I could find an excuse, I think it boils down to me being a pussy in the heat! Not sure if dialing down the pace much would have helped? I will be getting a different helmet for hot days though, I had a black Bambino with visor and it felt like my head was in an oven.

    Not sure. Stuck to power, but HR was high and felt hot out there. Started feeling sick and that was pretty much game over. Couldn’t take on gels, or elctrolytes just sipping water. And it was only 31! Felt a lot hotter and the wind was up shifting 180 so we got a headwind heading out on 2nd lap and back in. Shit load of walking on the run. Stopped feeling sick on lap 3 so managed to run more, negatively splitting my 5 hour marathon 😅.
