  • Year of first Tri race?

    Trex Cross Tri - Port Stephens

    It sounds like it may be like the first stage of Port to Port mtb race in previous years, in which case it was sandy firetrail with lots of short punchy climbs. In which case a CX would not work well.

    No More Soft Bike Cases On Hawiian Airlines

    I don’t understand the reason. They don’t take responsibility if they are damaged anyway. The hard cases are much heavier.

    Perth. Racing, training, etc?

    The biggest group ride in Perth starts from South Perth ; https://www.southperthrouleurs.com.au/

    Is Ironman Busso Doomed?

    So you are worried about sharks and think moving the race to Albany is a good idea ?

    Challenge Wanaka Full just got canned

    I don't think it is the cost, the time involved is not sustainable and after you have done the few the long training sessions get kind of boring (in my opinion)

    Stages Power Meter

    The stages is the easiest to swap between bikes. I have a near new 175mm Ultegra one I can sell if anyone is interested. Building a new cross bike and it won’t fit.

    IMNZ 2018 Roll Down

    I know the guy second in 60-64 and he said there were two spots and he got one ?
  8. This one got off in Perth last week http://www.watoday.com.au/wa-news/elderly-mandurah-man-found-not-guilty-over-death-of-cyclist-20180208-h0vsqi.html didnt notice he did it

    Plenty of heat in wa, don’t need Queensland for that. You guys already have one Ironman, don’t be greedy. As for Pete Jacobs he has dnf more races than I have had hot dinners. I feel sorry for the guys that wanted to finish and got pulled for a shark and then a fire, the finisher medal will be a hollow feeling for them tonight. There is always next week for pros, but for some age groupers this is the only chance they get.

    Could be a lightning storm coming by the look of it, may as well chop some off the run leg.

    So back to the race, the bike leg was cut short due to a bush fire ?
