    More internet diagnosis

    you've got a painful sesamoid. Probably. Treatment depends on exactly what's going on and how irritable it is.

    Where do I find old Kona videos?

    anything 1990 onwards was NBC (ABC prior) and will get taken off youtube. Try torrents if you're happy to do that. cyclingtorrents.nl has a lot but restricted membership

    Kona Race Day Discussion

    Cam wurf’s race report is a good read: http://cameronwurf.blogspot.com/2018/10/kona.html

    Some kind of ketone supplement.

    Kona Race Day Discussion

    Severe rain and flash flooding forecast for the Big Island extending through Saturday evening. Rained a lot on Mon/Tues evening, the most on race week for years. Cant think of the last time there was a lot of rain on race day.

    Chongqing 70.3 Cancelled Again

    50 slots last year with only about 550-580 entrants, the odds looked reasonable!

    Chongqing 70.3 Cancelled Again

    I got a partial refund from travel insurance but was still out of pocket for the excess. Ironman offered to help with this but then didn't reply to the emails. Flights to Chongqing were actually very cheap (maybe $500-$600 return from Melbourne), so it wasn't the money so much but the principle of following up on their offer.

    Chongqing 70.3 Cancelled Again

    I signed up for the race last year and it was cancelled 7 days out. Ironman said they would help me out with refunds for flights - then never replied to my emails. Ended up with an entry toThailand instead which was a good substitute...

    Where to place your bottles? Some aero data.

    Straight from the article: "Placing the bottle behind the saddle is a good option for aerodynamics because of the disturbed air caused by the riders body - having the bottle on the downtube where the airflow is more consistent affects the overall aerodynamic drag more than in "dirty" air. In this instance however having the bottle between Jess' arms may encourage her to drink more than if it were out of sight behind the saddle, so worth giving up some aerodynamic penalty for greater practicality."

    Frodo out?

    funny I've never seen a sacral stress fracture in a fast bowler. Lots of low back ones (pars interarticualris).

    Frodo out?

    It's his sacrum. What a bummer. Can be a bit slow. It's an injury you only really see in skinny distance runners...

    Word me up on the new Shepparton Course

    flat, granular road surface, wind exposed. Not too different from the old one but the roads might be a bit slower.
