    9 weeks till Ironman Australia

    Chasing IM finish number 12 and this would be my second time at Port. The last time I did it 3 years ago, I had a tubular puncture that I couldn't fix but I was lucky enough to get a spare wheel from the roaming mechanic, so managed to finish it in the end. Hoping NOT to repeat that this year!

    IMNZ 2018 - First Full

    Congrats! And great report! The first one is always special, here's to many more to come!
  5. I supposed I could patiently wait until the dates are released but being an anxious triathlete, I'd like to plan early. Any inside scoop on when it could be, if at all?

    Disc Wheels (again)

    I purchased a Parcours disc (UK brand) from Acium Sports based in Melbourne and really happy with it. Link below. https://www.aciumsports.com.au/collections/parcours/products/parcours-disc?variant=38128362625

    most patronising thing said

    "Did you win?" I get that question each time I said I participated in a triathlon, half IM, IM, road run, park run etc. on the weekend

    Busso 70.3

    Congrats and well done! It was a tough day, didn't know the shark was that close! Glad they cancelled the swim for IM then, could have been much worse!

    IMWA 2017

    Flying in from Brisbane tomorrow (it's going to be a long flight!) and drive down to Busso on Friday. Down for my 4th IMWA (used to live in Perth before this) and hopefully 12th IM finish. I can almost smell the Legacy spot (sure I have to wait a couple more years). All the best to those racing! Might be a hot but wet one!

    Wheelset recommendations

    I switched my Cadens to Parcours https://www.aciumsports.com.au/collections/parcours not because I didn't like my Cadens, but I wanted a disc and it was reasonably priced. They're based in Melbourne and I received my wheels within 3 weeks of ordering.

    Disc wheels - yes/no?

    I was in the same boat and almost got myself a disc cover. Tried contacting DYMA multiple times but no reply, heard from a friend that they're no longer in business. Almost went down the Wheelbuilder route but read plenty about their warping issues. In the end, I decided to bite the bullet and sold my wheels (60mm front and 88mm rear) and got myself a set of Parcours disc and 56mm front from Acium Sports based in Melbourne, because we all know that the decals have to match hahaha. Would be racing IM Busso in a couple of weeks, so I can't wait to put them to test!

    Sunny Coast 70.3 2017 Race report

    Thanks Wombattri! What I lack in my bike, I try to make up in my run. We all have our strengths and weaknesses.

    Dyma disc covers?

    Sorry for reinstating this old thread. Thinking of getting one myself. I know Austrimag did a brief review in the May edition but interested in hearing feedback from other users? Thanks! I've emailed and sent a message to their Facebook page early this week but haven't heard a reply, hopefully they are still in business!

    The Good Bar on First Avenue, next to the athlete check-in area. Mostly American style but that burger was really good!

    Sunny Coast 70.3 2017 Race report

    Great report and well done! Here's my report and coincidentally, I too ride with Caden wheels! So they must be doing something right! http://just-tri-hard.blogspot.com.au/2017/09/sunshine-coast-703-2017.html

    Ironman Whistler

    I did this race in 2013 when I was living in Canada. While the bike course is tough, it is simply gorgeous. Very honest and fair, long climbs, long descends and a long flat stretch for the time trialists, something for everybody. My bike split was about 20 minutes slower than usual. I still think the bike course is not as bad as the likes of IM UK, Wales, Lanzarote or Nice, but I've not done those races either. Run had some climbs as well but many parts of it were shaded being in the forest and running on dirt road feels quite nice compared to harsh concrete.

    Springfield Duo

    Did the standard yesterday, 6 minutes slower than when I last did it two years ago but the bike course was shorter then. Overall felt better yesterday, so considered that an improvement! Still slow on descends and cornering, so got to work on that. Funny story, as I got to the bike mount line I realized I still had my run shoes on! Brought the bike back to the racks, removed shoes and went back out again. You can tell I don't do duathlons too often!
