Recommended Posts

TGL and Rattie have just gone past to head out for their last lap. I think they're doing a team time trial as there was some blatant drafting going on there!!!

Certainly have seen at least two NSTC guys. That is one awful outfit!! On the run, I will be able to give a bit more detail with race number.

Ratty pretty well spot on for his predicted bike split at the last timing mat. Keep it going mate.

The male professionals have just passed the 165km mark of the BikeSure bike leg. Clayton Fettell is 8min 30sec ahead of Maik Twelsiek, followed by Josh Rix, Timo Bracht, Matty White, Leon Griffin and Aaron Farlow at 9mins 20sec behind the race leader.

 

It will be very interesting to see what Farlow does on the run. I'm just wondering what last weeks effort and Wagga will do.

Interesting no Trannies swimming under the hour, does that indicate how rough the conditions were?

JDE was under the hour...

 

Conditions looked a little up and down but suspect it was more a swell pull. Times seem to be a couple of minutes down

Yeah I think so. There was a strong current pushing them out on the way back which didn't seem to bother the pro's as much as the age groupers. Lot of a/g's doing a little extra on the swim.

 

In town the wind has died off again. There's a lot of storm clouds rolling in though. Hopefully the storm will hold off until the last riders are in.

No wonder I race ....how boring is it being a spectator of the bike leg during IM?!!!

 

Port was way more fun hanging out with the pi$$ed Trannies!!! :)

 

That's why volunteering is so rewarding! The riders sure appreciate spectators.

Weather has changed. Strong wind blowing with solid cloud cover. Mid 20s and maybe some rain

The first 4 girls are pretty close and have just left for the run. Should be an exciting finish for podium spots!

Good point! Wonder if it's too late to volunteer for the pro men's recover area!!! ;)

Really? Thats cool. He's riding a borrowed bike that we threw together just for fun so the bike split could have gone either way. He doesnt so a T1 time either so I wonder if he's lost the chip,.

Does this mean fettel is not vying for olympic selection? Cranking out an ironman would seem like an odd thing to do if he is ?

 

What happned to luke mckenzie ?

TGL and Rattie's TT is over ...they're off and running now!

 

Rattie was a cack! Pulled up short of the T2 line in what appeared to be cramp torture so had a bit of a stretch. Next thing you know he's thrown his bike to the vollies and sprinted through transition. I guess he was still aiming for best T2 time!!!
