  1. Reminds me of the episode of 'The Games' series where Mr Wilson designed the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games 100 metre track....which was 'about' 100 metres long..... John Clarke at his best😂

    Noosa Tri 2018

    Wurf had 13mins on me on the bike leg, BUT, I had a higher top speed than him! 90.7km/h, I'll take that as a win.
  3. Cadens, love em. Now that I know Hoka's work for me I'll be buying them from Willie from now on.

    Shoulder Bursitis - Cortisone

    I had shoulder bursitis late 2013 and into 2014. Took up Triathlon early 2013 and jumped straight into a 70.3 so I think the increased load in training caused it. Did rehab for a few months with little success, so got a US assisted cortisone injection early 2014 which seemed to help. Had another one later that year as I was going overseas for 12 months so the specialist said it can't hurt to throw another one in to help while I was away. I didn't swim for 6 months while away anyway and it seemed to help as I haven't had any problems since, although my swimming load from then was fairly light as I didn't do any major training til late 2016 when I decided to do IM OZ 2017. Also did IM Oz this year, still no problems.

    What the F is going on here?

    It's called 'The Homer'
  6. Hey Willie I run with the Arahi 2's, I found them great for my long runs and Ironman. Not sure how they would go in an Olympic distance or shorter where I'm pushing harder as I find they automatically slow my cadence a bit compared to my Lunarglides which I've been using for years. Is there a 'race' or lightish type Hoka that would be good for this (and still be my required type shoe)? or could I even still use Lunarglides for shorter stuff? Or is that not recommended due to the big differences in the 2 shoes? Cheers, Matt

    Which current triathlon has the fastest descent?

    Last year's Noosa was my first race there, I hit 87km/h down the hill, I thought that was pretty standard...? I race around 70-71kg so dunno if I'd get much faster than that

    Port - Right Here, Right Now

    11.05 for me which is a 43min PB from my IM debut at Port last year. Stayed consistent with a puncture last year and a puncture/mechanical again this year which cost me 10mins....😑 Goal was to PB the swim and bike, did that by 8mins on swim and 19mins on the bike, then somehow jagged a 13min PB run. Stoked. But pissed I could of had a 10.xx next to my name, guess I'll have to do it again... Great race/town, crowd support awesome.

    9 weeks till Ironman Australia

    I'm in 2nd time around, last year was my first full. 11.48 with a puncture last year, hopefully a bit quicker in all 3 legs, but who knows on the day.
  11. Stealth. They make e-bikes.
  12. Was waiting for a comment like that, surprised it took this long
  13. Yeah that's how I read it, but wonder if they can back date it to the submission of 30 January, would they bother chasing up after the fact if I have already taken delivery, who knows, but yes you're right, it is new bike time now!
  14. https://cyclingtips.com/2018/02/bikes-imported-australia-hit-unexpected-5-tariff/ I'm on the cusp of ordering a new Canyon, does the mention of the revocation request for normal bikes mean I'm staring down the barrel of an extra 5% import tax??
