    AP. What else does it take?

    So you've never actually been to Kona then

    Can you believe there's no Colonoscopy option on Strava? Reckon I did at least 100x 10m sprints yesterday.

    The Mental Health thread

    It's nice that you can share something with her but as an experienced diver (over 500 hours underwater) it would be incredibly irresponsible and dangerous (not to mention likely illegal) to take her on dives using an octopus. Don't do it - wait until she gets her ticket and do it properly. Are you really willing to risk both your lives because you're impatient? You could kill her and yourself.

    Is drafting cheating or other?

    Not raced but have ridden up there with my mate Humdrum. I'm not suggesting TOs should park on MFD during a race as it is an unusual circumstance and you'd expect common sense to prevail. I will say however, that it's still the competitors responsibility to maintain their distance. I suspect most people encroaching here would have little trouble passing the people in front as many slow to a crawl. But what's a TO to do if a drafting group decides to just roll up MFD together with no respect for the rules at all? As I said earlier, I have not mentioned accidental incursions at all. I do believe it's the competitors responsibility to only pass when they can legally do so and if they can't they should be done for drafting - which is cheating. I'm still staggered you can get DQ'd for dropping a water bottle but blatant cheating is perfectly acceptable.

    And if you 'viloate' the rules and gain an advantage you have cheated - what part of that don't you get? You can debate how it happens until the cows come home but it doesn't change the fact - refer to the definition I posted earlier. If you can't pass someone, especially when they're required to sit up and let you by, then you have no business attempting the pass - you're just drafting. Based on you're premise it would be fine to just sit behind anyone and occasionally drop back to suggest you're just unable to pass them. Triathlon's a funny sport, so many people cheat but not thinking it's wrong - wankers really.

    Nowhere have I mentioned 'unintentional drafting'. Riding into a draft zone to pass isn't drafting - it's simply the physics of passing which is allowable in the rules and not a violation of anything. Stop trying to defend the indefensible - you folks supporting cheating would be the first ones to bitch and moan if someone cheated you out of a Kona spot.

    Seems I was right, you are deluded. Seriously, to compare someone accidentally dropping a gel and leaving to someone deliberately drafting is laughable. I'm happy for them to be DQ'd for not picking it up but drafting is outright cheating. No wonder we don't get clean races, some people can't even see they're cheating. It pisses me that people think this is OK, what a pathetic display of 'sportsmanship'.

    FFS, half the people that drop stuff don't even know they've done it - if you classify that the same as drafting you're deluded.

    These are nothing like drafting. The difference is these aren't done to gain a personal advantage as opposed to drafting where you are.

    Like I said earlier, she's wrong by every definition of cheating. What chance have we got when the people running the sport are clueless?
  13. I'd be more inclined to think gimmick. Be careful you're not letting this little scare point you to things which probably aren't relevant. As CL alludes to above, it would be interesting to know what they think might be the cause and then try to monitor that. Even Apple are saying the HR monitoring is only really useful for people who have diagnosed AF. For my totally non-professional opinion I think BP would be a far better thing to monitor than HR. Out of curiosity, have they said if it was a clot or a bleed?
