Previous Fields

  • Year of first Tri race?
  1. 70.3 Dubai live - right now!

    Last I checked Alistair Brownlee and Holly Lawrence were out in front at around 15km. Not the strongest fields in the world, judging from the top 10s out of the water. Good video coverage though
  2. The Movie Quote Game

    Exactly right- Fletch Great movie
  3. The Movie Quote Game

    You're right...he did a few though. Begins with 'F' / one word
  4. The Movie Quote Game

    My turn "You using the whole fist, Doc?" Hint: It's not a porno
  5. The Movie Quote Game

    Naked Gun. I'm also over 35.
  6. The Movie Quote Game

    I say it all the time...turns out I've forgotten where I have heard it!
  7. Rashies

    I have done it a lot . Tips: - Buy a rashie (longsleeve) off Ebay - the chlorine kills them quickly, so don't spend big money on it. Expect it to last 6 months or so -Get a tight fit - Wash it in the machine after the swim (maybe two rashies, depending on your schedule) - Use lots of Body Glide or similar, they can chaff the neck -Sun cream on the bits not covered. Do that as soon as you arrive at the pool to give it a good amount of time to dry
  8. L'Etape Australia

    In NSW - eastern suburbs to Waterfall return via the main road, not the national park (not that that is much better...) Edit- I am talking about Sydney
  9. Aero Helmet

    Unfortunately there is no right answer. Everyone is different when it comes to aero helmets, based on how they ride and position their head. What is awesome for me may be really bad for you. The only real way to find out which is best for you is to do some aero testing (for example, with Alex Simmons in Sydney) or visit a wind tunnel. That said, there are helmets that seem to perform better on 'most' people. The Kask Bambino is one and the newest Giro (Aerohead) is another. There is an older LG that also apparently did well on people, the P-09. You might find a cheap one of these? Alex might be able to put his 2c in re: helmets that generally do well.
  10. Kona LIVE Coverage 2017

    They're only doing this because they know 2 of their athletes are going to dominate air time - Kienle and Ryf It's still a good thing though.
  11. Longest Training Ride before 180km

    You beat me to it. It's Elite Energy: It might be sanctioned by TriNSW, it might not They reserve the right to move the swim bouys mid swim There might be enough volunteers, there might not.
  12. HED trispoke rear - replace/grease bearings

    I literally just contacted the Aus distributor with exactly the same query, I am going to go around and pickup some bearings. It is Sydney, but I am sure he can send you something. http://www.dawsonsports.com.au/ His name is Brent.
  13. Croeso i Ironman Cymru

    Great report. I felt like I was there. Note to self - Wales, a race I will not be doing. Cold, wind and rain don't work for me.
  14. Dcrainmaker and Power

    I have an old Quarq too. Nothing wrong with them. They're as good as anything else our there. I wouldn't dismiss a powermeter product based on N=1, issues like that will always happen for every brand. That said....Stages have had a bunch of issues talking to Garmins; it is a known issue, both sides blaming the other. Power2max just released a cheaper unit - Eco? You could take a look at that.
  15. Dcrainmaker and Power

    He rates lots, the quality between the major players is very similar. Take a look at his power meter review summary page. Which one is best for you is a whole different story. Do you want to move it between bikes? Do you want to train and race with it etc etc. All these answers determine where it is based (pedal/hub/chainring) and that determines what models you can look at.
