    death on beach rd

    just heard on the radio that a cyclist was killed on beach rd melb this morn not good news , these things just keep on happening thoughts go out to family and all involved
  5. So would you travel to a inland country town with say 30k population good airport , great easy access by car and a nice country feel that still has good restaurants and cafes but no Louie vaton shops etc over a place that has LOTS of overpriced shops and restaurants/cafes and proably a beach 🏖 also if the race is branded race over a non branded event would that make a difference to make you travel to the so called less appealing township to get to do the branded event thoughts and past experiences please cherrs ivp

    Race puncture repair

    Yep or not getting a flat :-)
  9. Totally disagree if it was a case of have to , eg your life threatened or someone u love anyone could do an IM if you HAD too its not that hard everyone bags AP about his 90% mental comments but he is right , if someone had to do an IM to save a loved one then I’m pretty sure u guys could get it done it’s not like you are going into the trenches in World War One like some like to make out on social media and at dinner party conversations

    Race puncture repair

    Pitstop doesn’t work well or at all on clinchers with the gps u should be ok , just make sure u have nice new tyres enjoy 😊
  12. Spot on i always tell anyone that goes WOW u have done IM its not hard , and certainly not the massive physical achievement that most would like to think ( or tell anyone who will listen) it is I just tell em pretty well anyone can do an IM in the cut off , with little to NO training if they actually want to ( or had to if thier kid was being held ransom or something) Ironman is NOT hard , running around Australia in 80 dAys is hard wlaking around OZ in 2 years is not hard doing it fast (for thier ability) is what’s hard

    She wants it’s cheap though
  14. You’ll be right to do one of the US IM that B@W does they are all on short , down hill draft feasts more like a half ironman than a full
  15. Thanks PE rezlly appreciate your input yes going for a great scenic course not too far from home (at this stage is one option) i have also been thinking that the “event “ should be enough to draw the right athletes ,from all around , even if it’s not at a latte slipping town also are looking at as many point to point options also I personally love point to point and it creates a real difference to a race
  16. I’d love to give you more info paul , but at this point I’m just doing the ground work for some other interested parties keen to put on a new event in OZ so I’m not in a postion to say anything official Things are possibly looking like this though It will be longer than IM It will be branded the brand has lots of history it will be held in 2019 im trying to find a good fast flat swim near a suitable town the Bike will be not be flat , but needs to be held in quiet open roads and be as safe as possible it does have a cap on numbers and those numbers Are very low
  17. I get where u are coming from but you are pretty much eliminating every race , most use active (or some Buisness like active), some don’t tell you and it’s just included in the entry with all the other costs (not sure why IM doesn’t do this and then now one would be complaining about it ,eg if the entry is $900 and active is 90 then just charge $990)
  18. This event will be hard ( but still achievable by most) but I think u are right it needs to be different from “others” to make it more attractive one thing would be branding , another a pretty much garrentee flat , down stream (to a point ) swim 🏊‍♂️ and a pretty spectacular and possibly fast course
  19. I think your right , but some of the options doing tossed around for this event arent as wild and isolated as HOW so should have a better chance of getting people there
  20. That’s the thing once you go to a place like Mt Bueuty, you find out that there can be lots of fun and things to do in the country just have to give it a go , that’s the hard bit
  21. That’s what I’m thinking but what happens in the event doesn’t have huge numbers ?
