Mooloolaba Tri 2017

Recommended Posts

07:53. Farkers. We were down the end last year as well. Slightly better kick off time but my lack of fitness will prolly have me finishing the same time

I heard that Ally, are they going to move it do you reckon?

Swell is dropping apparently, i think it will be in the ocean.

Kenneth is pulling out because he is soft

Thanks for making that call for me. Similar to you pulling out of Kona?

I'm heading up tomorrow.

Will be lucky to get under 3:15, but that will be better than my last M'ba outing which was a DNF.

They put Cranky in charge of ordering them

Conditions are pretty good, it's just that shore dump to look out for as far as I could tell.

I hadn't noticed the lack of visor, but I'm sure the expo gets smaller and smaller each year.

Mootri has been slowing dying for the past few years. It's way too expensive

And yet Noosa keeps growing...

 

Numbers have been declining for last 4 to 5 years.. hasn't sold out in that period..

It's actually a great weekend but unfortunately getting killed by wtc's corporate greed.

Noosa has the history here. I love mool, and could afford it when I had free accom. I loved watching the itu go round, though less so as a sprint distance.

Latest social media post just now...entries still available. They must be really struggling.

Been coming for a few years but I reckon this is the quietest I've seen it - unfortunately my age group has one of the biggest entries I've competed in - nearly double last year!

I made it.

3:16.13

Not quite a positive bike run split, but only because the bike was slow.

Or, more specifically, the bloke on the bike was slow.

Thanks to Fozzy for the cheer along.

I'm ok with that. Reflective of my training quality in the past six months. Some serious work needed for Port. I can't wait to get back to riding my real bike on real roads. Loved the ride today. Ride like there's no run was the plan. While not a fast bike time the increased effort was reflected in a slow run. So I guess mission accomplished.

 

Perfect conditions. Mooloolaba at its best.

 

You're welcome Tyno. My Tranny hat and bum bib didn't get a single shout out. Have Trannies gone back in the closet?

I didn't go this year - I have done about 10 USM/WTC Mooloolaba's + the previous QSTS Mooloolaba twice (that one was fun :smile1: ):

  • OD is my "thing",
  • had free accom' as younger son just relocated to Sippy Downs,
  • it's just over 2 hours from home.

BUT

  • it is too expensive,
  • I always feel like mere rent-a-crowd for the ITU event,
  • the event was designed from the outset as media friendly (camera angles and technical) over athlete friendly (safe, fair, fun) - as one of the original race committee explained as he lectured me on event organisation (Mool v HBT).

I raced today, it was a good event as always. My run was a run/walk due to Achilles issues but I enjoyed it anyway.

I'll be back, it's more accessible, less expensive and the run course is nicer than Noosa.

Yup all done....2.12 off very limited training due to injury so I'll take that. First time doing Mool OD and liked it, will def go back.

Yeah, she did well.

Thankfully she didn't beat me like at Cronulla, but I was shuffling scared.

Not so much of a plan as an accurate understanding of my current limitations :D

We paid for the early start.

It was a good idea.

Yep, did that for Mool and Noosa each time (wanted to race with mates anyway). Worth the extra dollars, and that's coming from me the scrooge!

My First Mooloolaba and only my second OD race.

2:30 was my goal and finished with a 2:29, Port training appears to be coming along well.

 

Having raced Noosa for my first time last year and Mooloolaba this year, I preferred the Mooloolaba bike over Noosa but the Mooloolaba run was shit!!!

 

I think I’ll be back to have another go.
