  1. Eurosport is brilliant for its live cycling coverage, downside is the late nights
  2. Nope, have qualified half a dozen times, took the option up once and still didnt go, as I got sick. Can't do ironman anymore and do I regret not going ? Nope. Why didn't I go, number of reasons, worked fulltime and would take 2 months off for IM OZ and didn't want to take leave without pay and the overall cost, my challenge was to go as fast as I could here, I knew the conditions there and the time of year would not result in a good result, so why would I go to finish and not be in a position to do my best when I pushed hard here. I saw IM as a challenge to push myself to what was my limit and try to improve, sometimes I did sometimes i didn't
  3. Bloody hard little course especially being a duathlon, as for the move and date, not sure on easter next year but the Forster date of this year would work as it doesn't clash with other races ( well at this time)
  4. Interesting to see Roxiis'coments from them about not knowing of the past Qld based Xtreme wheels, I had a similar conversation with them and also the road racing comment. Probably the best option to follow with the newer brands is if they are UCI legal, at least there is testing involved and gives some piece of mind. Also if you intend to road race in some bigger events you need this if the officials are stringent on equipment. I haven't tried Cadens but my mate swears by his and I've tried a pair of Yoeleos and found them to be fast and stiff and are my go to road race wheels (well when I can get them off my daughter). Plenty of decent cheaper options are out there now using Chinese wheel manufacturing but I would stick to a set that are UCI certified still going to get a new set for $1200- $1600 ,
  5. Kurnell was $135, Nowra enter by Sept $95 but upto $154, Olympic starts at $185 in Sept to $224, I heard a lot of rumblings at Kurnell about the price for the race and also a lot of coments about Nowra and the other events, seems to have been a decent price jump this season
  6. Yeah low numbers, but getting pretty pricey for a sprint, been comparing prices with both Qld and Vic races and they are much cheaper and Hills race on today as well, good to see the old fella getting a top 10 and my daughter had a solid day day with second female and a top 20 . Was a good race and conditions, certainly not the super fast race of old, but nice to see a bit of a harder race and a time of sterile flat cources
  7. We have a brand new Zoot Wahine 2 Womens wetsuit (medium) that still has all its tags and gloves attached. Rec retails is $699 just want to move it so $350. Pick up at Greystanes or post at buyers expense Vic 0413803275
  8. I have a rear Hed3c 10 speed Shimano for sale. fast wheel , this is the full carbon version. I run a 11 speed shimano cassette on it that has been michined by a bike shop, so the easy to run a 11 speed. Asking $450. PM or call Vic 0413803275
  9. Zoot were making Trisuits in the mid 80's got my suit in 1985 from McCulleys in Hawaii. Quality wise it was brilliant, it was in use till the mid nineties and just recently sent it back to Zoot and its now being displayed in their office. Yep IM distance inspeedos was easy with a bit of vasso on the saet or also lanolin rubbed onto the thighs as it was hardier on the skin.
  10. I have 3 brand new Vittoria Corsa CX tubular tyres that are 26”. ordered the wrong size and only found out when I tried to put on on a wheel, my mistake is someone else’s gain $110 for all 3 with postage included. Pm or call/text me on 0413803275
  11. Pineapple

    New event

    I think you will find quite a few of us would love this, have started back with Hills races as we have a Aqua Bike event held with the rest of the races, at least now you feel like you finish the race, not a DNFafter the bike.
  12. Emo probably cant be bothered driving up the mountain
  13. Biggest problem is the timing of the event as it clashes with the Nepean , a race that always attracts a big field, real pity they are the same weekend especially as the Nepean will take most of the Panthers and Hills Tri club members as it's a big event for both local clubs, who also have large memberships
  14. If you can have a decent swim and ride like you normally do and put a run around 45 ish you should be ok
  15. From last year I feel that a road bike would be more suited as it is far more nimble in the witches hat turns, aero bars are worth while
