    Any news on Lionel Sanders

    Kienle didn’t have a good day either. It was a good year for the runners.

    Kona Race Day Discussion

    I think he qualified in the military category so maybe they do separate results for that.

    New Specialized Shiv

    Looks like a good bike for a pub crawl. You can fit three pints in the back ?
  4. You won’t need to look hard to spot an ebike, they weight about 20kg !
  5. New category for Mtb Cross country, e-Bike national champ ! https://www.mtba.org.au/news/e-bikes-to-feature-at-national-championships/
  6. They are allowed now in some cross country mtb races in their own category which amazes me. I can see how they are allowed for enduro races as those guys aren't necessarily there for the endurance challenge. But surprised at cross country, given bike brands and shops sponsor races I suppose it gives them the opportunity to sell more bikes and get more people involved, but I thought the purpose was the physical challenge. As the participants age they could well end up in triathlon. Check out the new Trek Domane Ebike, I think they could end up in grand fondos as well if they are not already allowed. I have an ebike I keep at the office for commuting, they are fantastic, but can't get my head around a road bike and when I would use it over a conventional road bike.

    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.

    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
