  1. HOTW

    We have 2 chinese restaurants side by side, both run by Chinese families that compete hard against each other in xmas style street lighting ...... Only an 18 hole golf course sorry

    Ha ha yes - maybe need more than just 1 weekend for that list! For the HOTW really that's all that happens in the town for that weekend. Travel to any race is hard and our location doesn't make it easy for anyone that has to fly. It suits those around Brisbane and the SE corner of QLD that can make it easily enough in a car. If anyone is ever in the area at any time the door is always open.

    Lighten up mate. Sounds like you need to come and visit and go fishing to relax.
  4. HOTW

    There's plenty to do 1. There's a mini tri followed by breakfast at the pub every Sunday over summer. For the past 27 years we've also held a longer event on the first sunday of February. 2. There's a waterski park at the end of the main st. It usually holds the state champs most years and I think this year is holding the national waterski titles. 3. Fishing is a big thing. My mate sent me a photo today of the 115cm Murray Cod that he caught last week. 4. Hunting is a big thing if that's what you're into. 5. Motorbike riding. The North Star trail ride gets over 2000 entries because dirt bikers don't mind a swag/tent. 6. Horse sports including campdrafting, polocrosse and even polo. The Picnic Races are a lot of fun. 7. Off road racing. The Gundy 400 is a bit like the HOTW for off road racers. 8. Farming is interesting. There is a big disconnect between us country folk and our city cousins these days. It's a real shame because I know that when friends from the city come and visit they just love it. They find the farming side of things to be fascinating and there's a real interest in where our food comes from but very little knowledge. 9. The beer is cold and it tastes better when you've had a hot and dusty day. 10 . There's also a walking track along the river with a statue for the great Gunsynd. What makes it a great race is that it's a race that sorts out the pretenders. But if you've done the training you will do well. It's a proper 2km freshwater swim with no chance of any wetsuits. The ride seems to bring a lot of people undone because it doesn't give you a break. The run is hot. We have the best recovery tent of any race that I've been too. The race is also well supported by the town and I think that we're a friendly and social bunch. I expect to see you here to take me up on the offer of the beer ..................

    I'm visiting the inlaws at Mudgeeraba next week. I wasn't going to take my bike because traffic scares me, but if you wanted to go for a ride I'll throw it onto the car.
  6. What training did you do today?

    Did a group training ride with Lionel Sanders on Zwift this morning. Interval session that finished with 6 x 30 secs at 130% of FTP. Lionel decided to go all out and was pushing over 600watts!!!!! He was conversing via text and seemed like a very cool guy.

    I'll buy the some beer for any visiting trannies
  8. Bit light on the running in 2017 because my wife seems to have all mid week mornings booked leaving me mainly on the windtrainer. Swim 70km Ride 5800km Run 387km Had about a month around August September where I lost my mojo and then a couple of weeks overseas where no training happened. Otherwise it was a reasonably consistent year for me of staying fit and healthy.
  9. Your 1st race

    Robina enticer tri in 2006 http://forums.transitions.org.au/topic/18609-gatorade-tri-at-robina-400154/?tab=comments#comment-238144 That 400m swim looked like such a long way when I was standing on the bank. Still shit at swimming but have progressed from BOP to MOP on a good day.
  10. Taupo 70.3 swim cancelled

    I've got sympathy for any race directors that have to deal with things on the day that impact on the intended course. It's a major pain in the bum that creates a whole extra amount of work for the organising committee and volunteers, and results in annoyed triathletes. Basically no upside or silver lining to be found anywhere.
  11. Taupo 70.3 swim cancelled

    Timely article in The Australian http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/world/the-times/study-finds-new-zealands-water-far-from-pure/news-story/d8c47ad6a103aa7a081b214ee246dde4 Might be behind a paywall but essentially "New Zealand’s rivers are increasingly polluted. New data suggested that it was not safe for people to swim in 60 per cent of its rivers and lakes" "The inquiry’s report, released on Wednesday, said that intensive farming had increased the risk of contamination from animal faeces and from nitrates in urine. The authorities fear that contamination of drinking water “of sufficient severity to garner international media attention” will damage food exports and tourism, which rely on the country’s “clean, green image”."

    I don't seem to be able to see any splits on someone I'm trying to follow in both the ironman and the 70.3 race. Anyone know if there are tracker issues on the Ironman site?
  13. Smart turbo/ Zwift and the clueless

    Re - the price increase. I would like something for households with multiple accounts. But I'll keep on using it. I wish that I had thought of Zwift. I'd love to be in the ownership group of that business. I believe that the product they've got is good enough that most of those whining don't want to pay more but know deep down that they won't actually leave.
  14. Smart turbo/ Zwift and the clueless

    I tried that once too. What a mistake!! Need a different cassette on if I'm going to try that again.
