  1. that injury is career ending. I would guess never running again? Or not for a very long time.
  2. AFAIK he's only selling them low volume, to order? Not sure though. I think Ironpro has one. I think RRP was $1800, so not super cheap.
  3. I'm guessing it's a spoked wheel with carbon cover like Flo, HED etc I think the Caden disc is even lighter at 830 grams!
  4. what disc have you got? There's no weight saving if you something like a Super 9. My Zipp disc is 900 grams, Firecrest 808 rear is 1000gm, pre-fircrest are heavier. There are some discs, like HEDs that weigh a bit more though, 1300gms. Never had any issues with disc in high, storm winds.
  5. Lets not forget the athletes racing the 70.3 on the same day sonny Jim! IM 70.3 2007 1619 611 2019 1401 1232 2200 people racing in 2007 vs 2600 people racing in 2019..... 600 more 70.3 athletes at $400 an entry is a shit load of money!
  6. Yeah we knew you were joshing. Ain't no triathletes with too much money!
  7. Ditto. Haven't been a member for a a few years. As far as Ironman branded races in Australia go, numbers are on the rise or have at least stabilised.
  8. Port: IM 70.3 2019 1400 1232 2018 1200 1098 2017 1132 985
  9. For IMWA, pretty consistent 2006 - 800 2009 - 1124 2011 - 1250 2015 - 1200 2017 - 1460 2018 - 1150 note for 2017/18 you had 700+ 70.3 athletes, so numbers racing that day were over 2000. I would say number steadily rose and have remained consistent.
  10. If it is dying, when did it peak in Australia?
  11. Prizna had fastest AG IMWA swim split with a sleeveless.
  12. WA has a pretty full calendar 9 ODs, 30 sprints/enticers, 3 IM branded races plus loads of smaller races not advertised on their race calendar TWA+Online+calendar+18-19.140219 (1).pdf
  13. Lies, damn lies and statistics. Disagree with you there chief. The sport is constantly changing. Numbers go up and down. It's easy to look at a few races that get canned and say the sport is dying. The small races are often run at a loss and they do it tough. Sufferfest have just dropped the Rottnest races which is a shame. Awesome place to race, just very poorly attended. But then they have a sprint on in Perth the following week and it's full. You could argue that IMWA numbers are low, 1200 in 2018, but then there's now a 70.3 same day, so you have 2000 people racing. Buss 70.3 in May has been hit hard, really bad luck, swim canned in 2017 for some waves, dec 2017 swim canned, may 2018 swim canned and this year weather was terrible.... putting off more people. Many had to be pulled out the water. They are now moving the race to March. It's also a sport that has a high rate of attrition, I played rugby for 30 seasons straight, many of my mates did the same thing. 3 - 4 years seems to be the average time a triathlete spends in the sport. So numbers will always ebb and flow.Crossfit, F45, tough mudder took a few numbers, but they seem to be dead or dying now. Triathlon/Ironman will always be the holy grail when it comes to endurance sports.
