    70.3 World Championships in South Africa

    Don’t know what the course is like but I read somewhere there 4500 starters. Even split in half that’s still a lot a people.

    Heated Pool in Canberra?

    There is nothing that opens early enough in Canberra for you to have a swim and be back at O’Connor by 6am

    Age group Doper Ironman Florida

    The article I read said they failed the pre race check and the mechanics changed the bikes but they didn't get it right as they then failed the post race check.

    Canberra Triathletes

    Actually the lake BG is not fine. It has been closed for blue-green algae and next weeks duathlon has been moved to Lake Ginenderra.

    Spot Anderson - BondiFit has quite a lot of swim squads at Prince Alfred Pool.

    Canyon - Gizmo needs a bike

    My advice Is don’t. I ran them for a couple of years until I got sick of the mucking about. You need a lot of pressure to mount them, have to use Co2 or air compressor. Also there is not many tyre choices available. The Hutchisons I used wore quite quickly, nothing like the life of a conti. There is more choice now but still limited. If you run the liquid sealant to fix flats when riding then it gets very messy when you need to change the tyre. Also if you get a big hole out riding, then you need to put a tube in and that is a real pain. However they do have a great feel great to ride on.

    TQ - the endless saga of the calf sleeve debacle

    But did they do the following 13. SPECIAL RULES The Technical Delegate may approve the addition of special rules for a particular event, provided that: a. Participants are informed of each additional special rule before the event; and b. Each additional special rule and the reasons for its inclusion are advised to the TA National Manager Events before the day on which the event is to be conducted. If not then their special rule is not valid.

    Anyone used Amazon

    No, as a lot of sellers don't ship to Australia and when they do the shipping actually makes it more expensive than buying in oz. However lots of talk in the press about Amazon setting up big distribution centres in Syd and Mel and moving in the oz market. amazon.com.au is only for books currently

    Stationary Swimming Harness

    Have a look on eBay, they are much cheaper. Both wife and I use ours. It can get boring, so I used to program a session on the Garmin. I found using a pool bouy gives me a more normal swimming position as well I also use paddles to help break the time up.

    Canberra - Training and Clubs

    Kamal, you are sadly out of touch with the Canberra Tri scene, Tridents are basically non existent since Ben Gathercole stopped coaching them 5 years ago. PTC would now be the equivalent of what Tridents used to be.

    ASADA Sanction Anomalies

    Given ASDA don't actually give sanctions the governing body of the sport does. I would guess that ASDA publish the information the is given to them by the sports.

    Port Roll Call - TRANNY TRACKER

    You can leave the penalty box to go the toilet, but the clock for the penalty stops until you come back to the penalty box then the TO will start it again.
