Not sure how I feel about her being back in the sport, but she looked strong as did Rinny. Gomez had a solid race, came in with the chase pack and did well on the run. 2nd is impressive for his IM debut! 

I struggled big time! Had a flat, don’t think the new tyre was ever fully inflated as it was semi flat when I picked it up from T2, but I still blew up badly on the run regardless of the bike shenanigans. Not sure how I managed 12th with a 5.05.. but anyway.

Fingers crossed Beth takes her Kona spot

1. She needs point 

2. Luke’s not going so doubt she would 

3. Yes I know you were taking the piss.

Long old day for me.

Was in a great position but at 150k my right hip completely seized. Rode the last 20k at about 20k/hr alternating between out of the saddle and single leg with three stops to try and stretch it out. Decided to start run and see if it would loosen off.. it kind of did but by that point I was just digging the hole deeper and deeper. Put far too much work in the last six months to not at least finish it off. Evidently, if I want to do IM properly something in my bike position/flexibility needs to change as yesterday was debilitating.

Do you take care of that stuff yourself, or have you had much help in the way of bike fitting etc?
