  1. Hoka one one (teach me)

    I understand Cliftons and Bondis are Hokas neutral road trainer offering - what’s the difference between them?
  2. Mool meetup

    Was the endura, ASICS and Subaru sponsorship up for renewal and not continued?

    Does Maffetone recommend a cross fit-style approach???

    Aren’t you a fan of Dr Maffetone?
  8. Lazer Tardiz helmet visor???

    Pete Jacobs was using a tardiz when he crossed the line first at Kona.
  9. Guilty by association?

    Is the grounding in ethics you’re referring to the Ato Boldon fiasco (ie texts talking about getting “[insert skin colour] money” to fund his trip to Australia, while she was a senator)?

  11. Geelong 70.3

    Challenge may at least have a consistent approach to assisting athletes suffering unforeseen problems. I’m not sure about the systems of other race organisers to accommodate carrying credits forward, but IM apparently can’t even keep a consistent line on what their systems can / can’t do...

    Now I’m seriously peeved that the IM Asia Pac CEO thought having a ruptured ACL with medial and lateral meniscus tears was less worthy of granting a transfer to than overseas work travel. Even more so when the fact you got a transfer implies his response to me that his organisation didn’t have the systems to allow it was untrue. I hope there’s some other explanation to explain that...

    So the moral of the story is that, unless you’re AP, don’t waste your time asking for a transfer. After all, you can’t expect an organisation valued at over US$600m to have the systems to facilitate that...

    I beg to differ - initially I was referred to the standard T&Cs by someone at the front-line. Then I decided to email Geoff Meyer, who made the Ballarat offer (either not familiar with what knee reconstruction recovery times are like or neglecting to mention I would also be eligible to use a mobility scooter). For completeness, this was around the time he was interviewed by roxii and made the comments about rewarding loyalty.

    IM Asia Pac don’t do transfers for illness - when I had to pull out of Noosa with a ruptured ACL and torn meniscus, apparently carrying a credit forward to the following year was too hard. So I was offered a place at Ballarat 1/2 IM. Perhaps they thought I was going to do the run on a mobility scooter?
