  1. Wore that t-shirt to race start at Port this year. Retired in the shirt that started it all. 20yo t-shirts can still come in handy. 😎
  2. Sorry mate. Went away for the weekend and forgot about it. Otherwise you'd be in front of somebody. 😆
  3. @ComfortablyNumb, You'd need to contact the guy that runs the app ( Mike Clucas ) to find out what is required. Sure it's kinda cool to have a ride on the app that is close to home and that you ride regularly ( Two Bays climb is pretty much at the end of my street, so comparing the virtual experience with the real thing was fun), but the beauty of the app is being able to ride in locations you will never to able to get to without spending $1000's. Rode in the Italian Alps last week on a beautiful sunny day with snow capped mountains all around. Bought the Kickr and a Fulgaz subscription ( if you get a 12 month sub. you can have a "Family" membership which allows your partner to have their own account. They can customise the app to their weight, FTP, bike weight,etc), that way my wife can also maintain motivation over winter when the weather is crap. She has no interest in TrainerRoad or Zwift, but loves Fulgaz.
  4. "Fulgaz" is a great app to use on a Smart Trainer. People record Go Pro footage ( 4k mostly) and supply the Garmin files ( .tcx, .gpx , .fit files) of a ride they complete. App changes the power requirements as you ride uphill. Camera mounted on the handlebars makes for a very realistic view. Displays the gradient and your "speed". You ride against the person that created the ride, and the latest update has now introduced a Virtual Partner called "Bernard". You can customise bernard to, say, have a base flat road power average of 200 watts. There are a great selection of rides from 45mins on Beach rd Melbourne or Akuna Bay, to rides in the French Alps, Canada, Italy, or the full 5hr IM Kona ride. Highly recommended.
  5. Thanks ex-. My performance reflects how much attention I pay to Pro cycling.🤣🤣 Having said that I love Velogames and will be back for Le Tour, even if it's just so that others can laugh at me.
  6. You are correct. And one of the guys we met that had qualified for Kona in 2012 was one of the 10 random slots. To the crowd's amazement he knocked it back because he only did the IMOz 2015 race to get his Legend status and then he was going to retire. Someone was lucky.

    Tick to all the above, and my recent decision to take 9 months Long Service Leave should account for any stress 😁 Unless the list of "projects " gets too long, then I might have to go back to work. Flannie should have it covered too. Aren't you "retiring "?
  8. Yeah, but you're still well ahead of me. 😁😁 And I had Dumoulin too, so won't be getting any higher up the ladder.
  9. "In" ......for another spanking.😲
  10. Yes please Ex, the wife & I enjoy a bit of in-house rivalry ( ie she loves beating me every year in the Tranny comp). Seem to be more out of touch with Pro cycling than ever before, so better start with the research.

    Port - Race Day

    So with only 3 finishers in the F60-64, 12:18/ 16:34 / 16:35 , I reckon 11-time finisher-Legend ( Jenny from Coffs Harbour) would never have known how important 1 minute can be. Love it.

    Port 2019

    I applaud the council for trying to make the roads as safe as possible, but I rode the course on MONDAY and they were pouring hot tar and gravel into some of the patchwork that comprises the road in Bonny Hills. Nearly destroyed my bike with all the wet gravel sticking to my tyres,getting caught in the frame,etc. Should they have done this 2 weeks ago? Don't know because it looks like the repairs they've done in town ( especially descending into Flynn's beach shops) is breaking up already from the rain over past 24hrs. All I can say is , if it's wet , be VERY careful entering Davis st which leads into MFD on the way out of town. Good luck to all.

    You turn up with it on your head ON RACE MORNING. Pump up your tyres, put your bidon(s) on your bike and leave the helmet with the bike as you head off for swim start. 5 minutes tops.😁
