Sorry, been MIA on here!

Yep, I'm in tomorrow. Looking like a fairly warm day but a nice solid course for sure! Interestingly they've told us it will be a 1min penalty if zipper in undone below breast bone on the run to be in line with ITU rules...

DNF? Did he run the low zipper gauntlet and pay the price?

Unfortunately for me, 5min into the bike I looked down to see my bottle with all my nutrition in it was gone. After the first hour with no nutrition at 349w I started to fade badly so began taking in the on course powerbar drink. Got off the bike and started running but gut was in all sorts from the drink. Held on until 10k but then had to stop 6 times in 4k to drop the kids off and couldn't get more than 10 steps of running without having to s**t. An hour on the portaloo after pulling out and guts are only just coming around.

What's the standard like in the UK. Times look slow for the various AGs or is it a slow course? Winner for my AG was 4.37.

I thought the standard seemed quite good. Was around 900m vert on the bike I think and quite technical. Run was also had one bike hill three times (probably slightly longer than mooloolaba hill) and off road sections through forest etc. Finally it was pushing 30deg which is hot here! For reference, the male pro winner went 4.01
