  1. Thanks for the Training Peaks code, i just renewed!
  2. great race! Ive done it twice. Roads are what they are.... not brilliant, but not brutal either. Swim is advertised as downhill although one year i did it it was a killer and we went into the tide. Run was hot both times but aid stations are great and the atmosphere is fantastic. Short walk to the swim start so factor that in if you need thongs etc.
  3. im in. Work life balance was non-existent last year. Good for some collective motivation
  4. any implications from this for Cam Wurf?

    Computrainer super under-whelming graphics for hours on end with the same data as zwift gives! Its been interesting watching the "zwift craze" but, in its most simplistic form, its just an extension on what many of us were already doing and recording in a pen and paper training diary. Kids these days... 😉

    TA Membership time

    I have no problem supporting the governing and regulatory body by paying fees. I'll renew, it'll just be later than what ot would have been if i left the auto renew on
  8. Its a great race. Flick me a message if you want any info on anything to do with it. Happy to help out

    got the email reminder, turned auto-renewal off.
  10. The run was/is brutal! Ive done two 70.3s in Malaysia but Bintan was by far the hottest. I went in un-tapered and fatigued thinking id just wing it. How wrong i was! Very well run race and super friendy though. Aslo pretty hassle free to get to logistically.
  11. Bintan... a place im still having nightmares about!

    Curious as well.... Elecro Magnetic fields??? (ie, less tv and mobile phones is my guess?)
  13. I agree. A number of the Asian races had notably faster tip 10 finishing times in the lead up to Mooloolabah. Whilst it may not have the status or attraction of Kona, it is still a great opportunity for locals that otherwise may not be able or willing to compete at a WC event.
  14. Im a massive fan of PerfPro. Its very advanced, somewhat similar to TrainerRoad but without the structured sessions. It is about $100USD but with no monthly ongoing payment. Great customer support via email as well. No association, just a massive fan.
  15. My point exactly. I did say questioned or scrutinized... a comment in relation to such comments at the beginning of the thread on "how many hours training" or the "hard v easy" age group. Turned up, rolled the dice, got offerred a spot and took it, the same way 79 others did.
  16. Anyone care to let me know what a young female needs to do in order to legitimately qualify and not be questioned or scrutinized by the tri community?
  17. I log in after a while away from racing and the forum for some motivation and i see ridiculous and unfair stereotypes of western sydney. I can sledge with the best but these last two are completely offensive.
  18. The LBS kit i wear is made by ventou. Its great quality and i believe its also Aussie made.
  19. Seems to be a common concern in stuff ive read... Cheers
  20. I want to flick the switch but im in the city concrete jungle, sans garage. Do any of you use a treadmill inside & on the carpet? If so, do you use a mat? Lino? What's your eperience with carpet wear & tear?
  21. Now have to work, can't race. Another DNS Accommo non refundable, but is transferable. This has been confirmed directly with the park. Details below, dm me for anything else. I paid $1376.

    Lachie's New Bike

    I raced over there on the weekend as well. Massive hats off to Lachie. He was more thsn happy to have a chat before & after the race. During the run, even after all of his issues he was still giving me shout outs. Kudos mate, you're the embodiment of "death before DNF" & I can't wait to see you race again.
  24. I flew Singapore Air for a race in Asia. Can confirm the bike was just treated as normal baggage under the allocated allowance
