  • Year of first Tri race?
  1. RobB

    IMWA 2016

    More likely it is cheaper after the triathletes have left town. Race is on December 4th this year I think.
  2. Ex I probably have a wheel you can have. I think it cam with my last bike but I have never used it. Will confirm over the weekend as I moved last year so it might have found a new home then. If so I work in the CBD so will bring it in on Monday if you still need one.
  3. Mine does that as well due to the rim flexing under load (out of the saddle) and rubbing the brake pads.
  4. I would rate the bike course 20-30 mins slower than Port. Unlike Port you lose all of your momentum on the downhills due to the turns at the bottom of nearly all of them.
  5. Not sure if you have them in Melbourne but my wife bought one from Clark Rubber up here in Brisbane. No brand on it though.
  6. KAM 1031 - IM virgin and absolutely crapping myself .....but would be STOKED with a 10:xx Tritragic 1396 - Looking to break 13 hours wetspot 21-41 Rebel 211 ---- sub 10...lack of running could come back to bite me Nealo 895 The Race of my life ->1:10/5/5:45/5/4:12 =11:17 , A race I'll accept ->1:15/5/5:59/5/5:06 = 12:30, A race I'll celebrate -> Finish PaperMan 886 Moffat77 711 11:06 last year - no target this year except ride 10 minutes slower and see what happens on the day...

Sammo - 932 - First IM so anything under 17hrs will be a bonus, but hoping for sub 13 and not to walk the marathon. noelski 477 - 6.5yrs since my last tri. <14hrs.

    If you had you would know that it does not give a date for entries. As Niseko has some inside information I thought he may be able to add something further.

    Ironman Japan

    When are entries likely to open?
  9. Probably in the name of safety. Watches are also banned in many Japanese pools.

  11. If this ride was as your RPE very hard+ then I would guess that your ftp is not as high as you think it is. 100km is only just longer than a HIM and you should be able to ride a half at ~85% of your ftp and still run to expectations. Your IF was only 0.77 on this ride and you rate it as very hard then your ftp is likely to be south of 290w in turn meaning you rode IMWA way too hard .
  12. Me too. Second in the mail today.
