  1. Oh man, I've got to go and find mine. They include: Me and a mate smashing watermelons over our heads as Rimmer suffered past on that steep hill on the second lap of the run Wendy Ingraham signing my bald head The late, great, Bill Bell at the afterparty with a nurse on each arm, and going long after they were totally shattered. Drunken nakedness the night before the race Unfortunately in those days before camera phones we didn't get Rimmer collaring Thomas Hellriegel at the afterparty and getting him to look at his wrist and say, 'mate, mate, you've got to see this, you need to take a look at this'. 'Look, INDIGLO!' 'Cameron, you are a very drunk man'
  2. Ah well! I'll just have to give him grief about what I think I remember!
  3. Any chance you've got Forster 97? Be worth rewatching that to see Rimmer's marathon. Not sure I've ever seen so much pain in my life. Other than the sunburn on my head from the bastard shaving it the day before. 4-blade my arse...
  4. I think they do - although they seem only to be available from TriUK over here - wonder if they've done a PlanetX and bought up the names?
  5. Different bloke than the Culprit bikes - that was Josh Colp. He and Cam have got a fair bit of banter going . Wurf is a windup merchant of the highest degree, but he's delivering.

    Poor lass, an uncharacteristic lapse in judgement on her behalf.

    Lads, lightweight rowing is still in the Olympics, and will be until Tokyo when they get binned because the IOC is seeking to remove weight classes in everything other than combat sports. I think he was a little along the track with rowing when he was at Sydney - given he went to junior worlds in 2001, it'd be pretty unlikely that he hadn't picked up a stick. Having said that, Kim Brennan went from never having rowed to a senior Worlds medal in that sort of time period. Agreed generally that he'd have been a good IP candidate in 06, though I'm not sure how good the sports transfer system was then at the tute!
  8. Just starting back, but my fave for the moment is the Stephen Seiler 4*8 mins on / 2 off. It's the only intensity I do in B/R with only 1500 or so hard a week in the pool. Doing them about 105-108% of FTP. Really effective for me, but I'm not sure that I'm doing them as hard as Seiler says - I hit around 85% of MHR at the end of the final one but I don't feel like there's a huge amount more in the tank. MHR for me is about 204, so hitting 170 or so.
  9. It's not a shame the Adelaide branch closed. Incredibly bad customer service - DILLIGAF could have been coined about them.
  10. Without the draft box yes.
  11. Personal Goals: Continue to give Rimmer heaps. Continue to get heaps from Rimmer. Personal Life: Get married, and support my fiancee and soon to be wife as much as I can in whatever she chooses to do. More contact with family and friends in Oz: in the day of easy communication, it's not acceptable to be as lazy as I am. Be more accepting of myself, and use that to be a better person and a better athlete. Be more proactive and deal with the things I'd rather procrastinate about (also applies to work) Sporting: Consistency and enjoyment in training - create good habits. Back under 20 mins for 5k, run sub 1:40 half. Vansbro Triathlon 1/2 distance under 5 hrs. First half, but hey. Drop my Oly time to under 2:10 and qualify for GB team. That that is about all that takes is a worry. Work: Complete all the governance and OHS stuff we've been working on for ages Compliance and promotion tasks for my employer 5 year plan... Lands End to JoG: Ride a day or so with Rimmer. Ideally the last one so he'll be shattered and I'll be fresh.

    Well, they were sweet messages. But she could always outsquat me... First of a long line of girlfriends who were better athletes than me! As Rimmer can attest, several were VERY good athletes, and me, well, not so much.

    I'd still like to find the particular arsehole at Melbourne Uni a few years ago who stole my bloody saddle! Honestly, wasn't a huge amount of fun riding home out of the saddle. And then there was the girlfriend many years ago who used to carve messages into my aerobar pads when I parked the bike at Melbourne Uni.
