    Le Tour 2020

    Between Wout, Tadej, Matthieu and Remco Evenepoel, there's going to be some epic cycling races over the next 10 years.
  2. I was thinking about this further last night, because what else do you do on a long run? It's interesting how old mate is being hailed a modern hero for stopping, but what happened to "don't ever quit" or "it's not over until it's over". There is a fine line between what happened here and it turning into "Greatest Sprint Finish Evaaar" or "Never Give UP!!" or "It's Not Over Until It's Over!" What if old mate had reeled in the other guy by a minute in the last 2km and was chasing him down and that's what forced him to make the wrong turn? What if he cracked under the pressure and he w
  3. I'd say that it was less of a shove and more of a heel clip or body contact when old mate went in a direction that the other dude wasn't expecting. It looks like he was trying to check up a bit.

    Le Tour 2020

    Speaking of TT bikes and positions etc., can anyone tell me why triathlon bikes seem to have the elbow pads and extensions as low as possible, but all these guys are propped up on 3 storey buildings? Is it purely a UCI rule thing? You never see anyone with that sort of setup on an Ironman course, and if they do have a higher front end, they seem to be almost sitting up and the furtherest from aero possible?

    IMWA 2020

    The Sunshine Coast medals didn't have 2020 on them this year. I only have 3 of them now, but the 2018 and 2019 versions did.

    Chain lube

    I've started waxing the chain on my road bike. It's quiet, feels awesome, and I'm yet to find something more satisfying than rubbing your bike against your leg and having absolutely no dirt transfer. I re-wax it every 300km or so, but I was lubing the chain at the same sort of service interval anyway. I just let it soak overnight and it's done.
  7. Great read Kevin! One day I hope to have a bad day like you!
  8. Don't worry about the eye irritant part. I think that's only really applicable if you were to put it on goggles or something. I've never had any issues with it. It should be well and truly dry by the time you go to use it if you apply it the day before the race. It's super easy to use as well. Wipe it on, let it dry, buff it off with a microfibre.
  9. This stuff. Got the tip from my time in motorsport. All the karters and open wheelers use it on their visors and teams use it on the inside of windscreens. Pretty cheap and it's easy to use too.
  10. That's what it was like. Great fun. Really grateful for the Aerohead helmet with the visor, and also RainX to help the water clear off it and prevent fogging.
  11. I always take a pillow to races where I have to stay away to eliminate any sort of dramas. The only thing that I can think of is that I dozed off for about 45 minutes on Friday night watching the TdF on the TV. Maybe I slumped weirdly? It's all that I've got.
  12. My Edge 530 bike computer does it, but my 935 watch does not. I pair them with the HRM-TRI. It's clearly a firmware thing because the strap is the same across both devices.
  13. Thanks Kevin. Really happy with how it went all things considered, but can't help but feel a tiny bit of what-could-have-been. Still, very grateful for the ability to race when so many others aren't able to.
