  1. I think the lack of Monday night function now means a lot of people probably leave Monday morning or after roll down (if they think they will get a spot). I know I am leaving as soon as the Beer Mile is done.
  2. Any more takers? I want to make sure I have just the right amount of beer on for the trannies 😊
  3. Bring it up to Port. Scott might give it a try 😁
  4. I was advised to not take my road shoes (I wear the Bondis as well) out to the trails. I have separate trail shoes for that which don't get used all that often anymore, moved away from the trail areas, I'm also accident prone when it comes to trail running.
  5. 16:30 sounds good, I have dinner at Town Green Inn from 6pm. @prizna and I are easy to recognise on course. He will be in his Pikachu hat (if racing) and I will be wearing my Eevee one.
  6. There are a few spots around the Town Green near the finish line. The pub right on the finish line (Beach House) is ok. Fairly average pub food. There is also the Town Green Inn which is also ok from what I hear.
  7. So are we actually organising a catchup? Happy for a pub somewhere on Friday lunch/arvo.
  8. I'm up from late Thursday night. But I have the witsup swim and morning tea on Friday morning. Then no real plans until bike rack on Saturday.
  9. We are also using it to go on holiday. Will be hitting up the beer halls in Munich, the symphony in Vienna and the wall in Berlin. Also some watch shopping in Zurich (maybe), and CERN in Geneva! It's been a while since I have been overseas. Also discretionary picks do not work if your AG is full in your chosen event. Closest chance I have in Australia is maybe standard distance duathlon or aqua bike.
  10. Only chance I will get to wear the green and gold. Unless I go get liposuction and get down to 65kg dripping wet to be competitive in my AG. Thats at least a $20k bill and no holiday after. 🤣
  11. @trickle I only believe in DQs for short cutting and PEDs 😁 Start time is 3pm - IRONMAN presentation will finish at 2.30pm.
  12. Yeah sold under the brand name of Clomid - friend who was doing IVF was taking it to encourage ovulation for harvesting. @Greyman Mesterolone is a testosterone booster, actually a lot of the stuff on there is a testosterone booster or estrogen suppressor. As for the GP, I have made sure I tell any GP I see that I am athlete (age-group) and that I could be random tested (although unlikely as I never win anything - well not age group anyway) Found this article: https://cyclingtips.com/2018/07/one-sick-cyclist-14-banned-drugs-and-a-four-year-ban-michael-fitzgerald-qa/
  13. Funny mechanical? Was that the butt slap I got on the bike @Flanman I rode right over a co2 canister. Thank god no damage! Not a bad race for me, moved to Athena as no points needed, picked up 2nd out of 3. I was mostly beaten in the swim and run. Thats expected, I was holding back, Port is in 3 weeks
  14. Drafting 😂 10km of road, and a lot of people out there at the same time. I think National Qualifiers are one infringement and you are out. Trying to verify that, but I'm sure I have heard them mention it. Mens 55-59 in the standard will be interesting - according to the TA Worlds site it is the only age group that has too many applicants for spots on the team, so they will be going for sheep stations.
  15. Yeah the donuts are coming down. Although the work mates have offered some assistance in eating them 😂 My bike choice is fine. Theres enough TT room there, just. Lucky theres no sheep stations on this one for me, that course looks ripe for some DQs.
  16. I better look and see if I packed the wrong bike 😂

    Port 2019

    I did a long ride outside on Saturday - not feeling too bad, will need to ensure I address some cramping issues, but easily fixed. I'll get some crampfix at the expo, that way at least I can have some on the bike and not into the run like I did last year. Wollongong this weekend, standard distance, was to be my last race for ITU qualification, but will use it to go around and test some nutrition. Next weekend I'll be in Port seeing the +1s family, will get to some of Mels sessions, especially the open water swims. I have a swim buoy arriving early next week.
  18. One year Scody did the voucher as a 1 x $100 rather than the 4 x $25 crap. We were moving away from Champ Sys at that point anyway, so we went to Scody. But Prism offered to help us redesign the suit so it did not look like something out of the 90's, very happy with Prism

    So entry lists are up IRONMAN http://ap.ironman.com/triathlon/events/asiapac/ironman/australia/athletes/athlete-list.aspx#axzz5kkqFw3aC 70.3 http://ap.ironman.com/triathlon/events/asiapac/ironman-70.3/port-macquarie/athletes/athlete-lists.aspx#axzz5kkqFw3aC How's everyone going?
  20. I found this on the ITU site https://www.triathlon.org/uploads/docs/Age_Groups_uniforms_updated_on_15_02_20194.pdf Does this mean Australia has approval for a sleeved suit? If so, that is what I will get.
  21. Late start! Oh well
  22. Not seen anything yet FM, hoping it will be today.
  23. Because they get reused if they do not get collected. I've been to a number of events (usually Elite Energy) where the category winners don't bother picking up their medals. Maybe because by the time the presentation is on they are long gone (like Big Husky Saturday where the presentation has taken place the last couple of years at 6pm when your race might have finished at 10am). I've run events (the Hills Duathlons) where the same thing happens. We moved to a generic model where the medals that were not collected were then set aside for the next race. The only thing we bother to change is the ribbon with the year.
  24. I'm buying one just for visiblity sake. Hoping that if I get seen early enough those damn SUPers will be able to turn (or fall off in time).
  25. 7k run - managed a 6:40min/k pace with a couple of road crossings - being Bennalong Dr in Wentworth Point (takes forever to cross). 90k on the bike yesterday, some bloody honest hills
