    Wollongong 2015

    I'd recommend a wetsuit, it'll almost certainly be wetsuit legal so you might as wel join in!

    Wollongong 2015

    The swim is great, sight off the wall on both the way out and in. Very pleasant swim. The ride is very fast and flat, with one short bump. The run is the worst leg, it's partly on grass and off camber for a chunk of it. Great race, very fast.

    Wet race set-up

    Another thing, put your runners under your towel, then just yank up your towel and they are dryish and ready to put on.

    Wet race set-up

    Brake earlier on the bike. The wet will kill breaking power. Feather the breaks before you grab a handful to clear water off the rim.

    Kurnell World Champs - what's up with it?

    I call it an 'obstaco-triathlon'.

    Kurnell World Champs - what's up with it?

    Speedbumps, just like Kurnell The only roads which are any good around there are too big to be closed for a triathlon...

    Kurnell World Champs - what's up with it?

    I did a biathlon at Iron Cove once, I would not recommend swimming in that part of the harbour. As a guess: swim in iron cove, T1 at todd park, bike along henley marine drive, up barnstaple road, out to iron cove bridge, turn before the bridge and do another lap, T2 at tood park, run around bay run. I can't imagine any ride around there that would be any good...

    Jan Frodeno dumps Specialized for Canyon

    Jesse Thomas moving to Dimond is surprising. It sounds like Specialized had a 'full service' model with all sorts of other bonuses (things like wind tunnel testing and sport scientist access) it doesn't seem like something an athlete would want to give up!! Edit: yep, looks like Jesse had an offer from Specialized on the table and went with Dimond. That is an impressive vote of confidence!

    Rides from Coogee

    Centennial park is the start of rides for a lot of bunches, its maybe 10km North of Coogee. From the park it is 90km return to waterfall, this is a staple ride for pretty much every bunch. If you head up there around 6am you will be able to find a bunch to jump onto. Otherwise within the eastern suburbs area there are plenty of good rides, the loop from centennial to la perouse heads down Anzac parade and isn't too bad early in the morning. You can come back up along the beaches and take in a few short sharp hills.

    Pro - Lite Wheels

  13. george-bob

    Why those wheels

    Flo 60 set, got them used and cheap ($500 with new tires and cassette) off Facebook. Rock solid, clinchers and aero enough for me. The alloy breaking surface means I use them as training wheels regardless of weather.

    Cycling nicks.

    You can get assos on special for less than $150 off torpedo 7, they will last ages and will be comfortable. That is value in my mind!
