    Ironman Frankfurt

    The commentators said she wouldn't remember. The question needs to be when the race organisers should intervene and if someone that isn't an official should make that decision.

    Ironman Frankfurt

    Sounds like assumptions to me. I will wait to hear from Sarah and Ironman on the facts about what happened and what should happen

    Shouldn't that be left to race organisers to make that call or the athlete?

    Ironman should clarify the rules around this. In my opinion we shouldn't be allowed to touch another athlete and as AGers we certainly shouldn't interfere with the pros race. People can say it was hard to watch. So is boxing but its not for the viewer to decide if the athlete should be stopped from competing. The AG stopped her sure out of concern but resulted in her not qualifying for Kona and winning the race and earning about $50,000aud.
  6. My first Orca survived about 6 years or so. The next suit fell apart. I am now on a blue seventy helix which has been pretty good. The arms these days though are way to thin.
  7. All of the 70.3 medals also had the Ironman distances on them
  8. What if they decided to do Ironman Perth
  9. Why not bring back the full Ironman at the same time
  10. Interesting Gomez is now back on the WTS circuit racing and getting ready for the Olympics while Brownlee decides to do Ironman. Do we think Either will make the podium at the Olympics or at Kona?
  11. Has anyone else had issues with their Wahoo Kirck18 unit? The power bank is showing the green light which says there is power going to the unit The ANT+ and bluetooth lights should be flashing but nothing The app won't pick up a signal nor does the Apple TV How have you gone with issues with your units??
  12. Thank you everyone who has posted. I am still considering options. I do love training in Melbourne (November - May) My plan is to do a race or two overseas next year. Possibly one at end of June and one late September early October Between that time do a training block overseas during the Australian winter
  13. Thanks anyway. Appreciate for letting me know
  14. Yeah much later than I should. Sleep is important and certainly something I need to work on. I'm currently 33years young. Thanks for the support
  15. I have done triathlon since 2000 and my goal when I was 16 was to be a pro. Self doubt and self sabotage has been a real problem for me and I gave up on my dream. Earlier this year I started thinking about my life and what I want to achieve. This year my only goal is working towards becoming a professional athlete. For me it is about me going on that journey everyday, learning more about myself and breaking those limiting beliefs I created. If I reach my goals this year I will have the opportunity to go to Kona as an age grouper or to apply for a pro licence. For me I want to race as a professional. Racing Kona isn't a focus so not racing Kona wouldn't be failure to me. Failure is what we choose to define it as. Failure for me would be giving up and not giving it my all. Even if I never achieve the qualification of that licence I can at least be proud knowing I gave it everything. Failure for one person might be neglecting the friends and family in pursuit of qualifying for Kona. For someone else failure might be not crossing that line before the time cut off. In the end we each define what success and failure is to us. The only persons opinion of my success and failure that matters is my own. Everyone else's opinion of my success and failures are none of my business.
  16. looking for the mono plug in version
  17. For those of you with a Trek Speed Concept and have changed the standard set up to the mono plug in... Where did you source your mono plug in from? How much did it cost you? So far I have only seen it for $400 which I think is a lot considering will still need the poles and new pads https://www.trekbikes.com/au/en_AU/equipment/cycling-components/bike-handlebars-accessories/bike-handlebars/aero-bike-handlebars/bontrager-speed-concept-mono-bar-extension/p/11862/
  18. What would you say is the best training location in the world? Feel free to choose where you live and explain why Where would you love to go for a training camp and why? If there are any videos highlighting the location you would love to train at, feel free to add these as well GTN to get us started
  19. My view is that trainers last between 800-1200km depends on the workload that is put on them Racing flats I would say approx 600km depending on the workload and if focused on distance or speed (10-42k racing vs 5-10K)
  20. I don't believe Pete Jacobs is Vegan. I think he tried it for a few months like he has everything else. Frodo, Patrick Lange and Sanders I believe are all veg
  21. I see Trek doing an update of the speed concept in the near future. I personally would either wait or look on the second hand marketplace. You can get a speed concept for about 3k with ultegra mechanical.
  22. SRM is the best in my experience. I have a quarq now and at times will decide I am superman. (needs regular calibration which the SRM does now) IF I was looking I would look at either the Garmin vector 3 pedals or the new SRM pedals that I don't believe have been released yet
  23. Yes in October. I had a friend fly out on the 29th Sept and they said no.
