Have a great day welshie 

Cheers mate. If add up my LCW times I am:

swim-  1.30

bike 7.30

run - 5.15

So I am 14.15 without any transitions and given the ultra long T1,  I'm probably staring down the barrel of 15hrs plus. Ugh.  As long as I finish though, all good :)

Nothing wrong with a 15hr+ IM. Particularly the one you have chosen.

 

I also like the flag on your race number (well not the actual design of the flag - yuk - but what it represents). I think you are just perverse, lol - you're "Fat Pom" over here, but I'm guessing you are known as "Aussie Ian" to all your UK mates and you bore them to tears talking up just how good the Aussie Cricket team is - especially David Warner - on all your long rides, lol. Always finding a headwind and turning into it ... just Because ... No wonder you are doing IM Wales!

Very excited for you mate!

1.25 for the swim so smashing the predicted times!

Definitely took his time in T1. Go FP (who is racing as an AUS). IM tracking is awful.

T1 has a 1km run to it from the beach up the stairs and through the town! How long did it take him?

Most are taking 15 minutes so in the scheme of things it's not as bad as it would seem. 

Isnt this the race where it's basically up a cliff out of the water?  Let me check

Yeah. Watch this for an idea. Cover photo shows it  

That was a pretty good video. The locals seem to get into it.

I was just looking at that - on one site there's no finish time shown but on another it looks like 15.45ish but on that one there isn't any splits for the last section.

Edit to add that 15.45 was a predicted finish - might have been a DNF....
