    Good news Katz!  Hopefully it all goes well.

    our house is having it’s first open day this weekend.  Hopefully we don’t have to wait too long to have a buyer.  It’s time to move it on.  We made the decision that WA is where we will be long term now.  So are selling the house in Townsville, it was going to be our retirement home as it’s beautiful but things change and it’s time to let someone else enjoy it.

    Where to after sunny Karatha?

    So if I, or my family was poor enough, then cheating is ok?

    Not OK, but it's easier to understand why someone would cheat when they are facing much more difficult challenges than, someone like Lance Armstrong. Their motivation to cheat is so they can buy food, school books etc for their families, LA's motivation to cheat was so he could be called the greatest cyclist in the world and buy another Ferrari.

    I don't think anyone has ever shown anything but sympathy for our forefathers who stole food to feed their families back in ol' Blighty.

    Just read some of the stuff on Anthony Colpo .com about his court case with Durian Rider.......Bloody hell what a circus.

    Wow yeah, just read his webpage... why would you bother wasting so much time creating a page soley to run down some internet troll. Bizarre. Maybe Colpo is Harleys mate. No such thing as bad press...


  4. He looks like he walked into a door not suffered a vicious, prolonged assault. In the video, the guy is sitting astride him and would have been able to land multiple punches. Whoever he is, he needs to give up on his career as a street fighter, he obviously has no clue. And  I can't imagine the hospital would have wanted to keep him in longer than 24 hours.... I was in hospital for 24 hours and then released and that was after being knocked out in a rugby tackle, broken eye socket, broken cheekbone, perforated eardrum. He's got 5 stitches. I'm leaning towards this has been staged.

  5. It's actually important to discuss his antics, I thought he had some credibility, so this thread has been quite enlightening. If people are aware he's a fraudulent, walter mitty, they won't give him the time of day.

    After. He commented this morning. 
    I title a lot of my pics #dadbod

     

    yup so that video is probably fake. I would imagine someone who had been seriously assaulted would have better things to do than troll online.... Was he just having a laugh or was he being a nasty f**cker?

    Perfect example of Durianrider being a dick. Tipping he’s reading this thread. I don’t follow him on social. Then today he starts trying to troll me.

    Tipping he’s cut my mates are taking his KOMs.

    So he's saying that, 2 days after supposedly being hospitalised from an assault or was this before?

    Yeah I'm glad he got whacked. 

     

    But knowing him.... It was probably ANOTHER organised shit storm to generate social media traffic for himself and anyone else who comments/shares the content. He's that fruity(pardon the pun) that he'd friggin do that. 

    That would be shit if he'd done that, but I wouldn't put it past him.

    Looks like G will give triathlon a shot after he finishes pro cycling.

    He's a pretty nuts time trialler. Wonder how he'd go!

    Would be cool to see!

    I kind of think the goalposts have shifted a bit though. You need to be close to an elite swimmer, plus a very strong biker to be even in with a chance at Kona. Unless things change, the likes of Lionel Sanders have no chance in Kona and it's not like he's a gumby swimmer. I think in one of his blogs he said he was doing 100m repeats on 1.20, coming in on 1.10. Not exactly slow. I don't think a pro-cyclist can make up the 7, 8 min deficit after the swim without cooking himself. Other Ironman races or shorter races may be different, but IMO if you're not in the lead swim group in Kona, forget about it..

    How much could tyre pressure affect performance that you noticed it to the extent your split was shit? Are we talking 5mins on a 70.3 for example? 

    it was just in a sprint. It would be interesting to see some kind of scientific data/experiment. Not sure if it was the tyres or me. Road surfaces were good.

    How do you know it wasn't just a bad day on the bike, tired/fatigued etc, went too hard.

    yeah it could have been. I felt fine, it was a sprint and I was fit, yet getting passed my everyman and his dog. Easy to blame tyre pressure, maybe it was the engine!

      Turns out that higher PSI had athlete's reporting that they felt faster - but they were actually slower (or using more power for the same speed).  

     

    Which is exactly what I experienced, I kept on jacking up the psi as it felt fast until I did a race and my bike split was shit.

    So now I'm even more confused. Think I'll just stick with what I've been doing, it goes ok.

    Tyre pressure needs to be quite low or very high for there to be a significant adverse affect on performance. The difference between 90 and 100 is negligible. I didn't notice much difference from 90 - 130 psi, past 140 I started seeing some performance degradation. So if you ride them at 90-, 95, 100 its not really going to matter a whole lot, especially when you consider differences in road surfaces.
