Apparently it is in her "stories" section or something? I don't understand IG. But if you figure it out I'd love the relevant stuff to get re-posted here.

I jumped on insta and she couldn't take her bike to Haiti as the airline didnt allow oversize luggage, so not a good start, it then shows her getting her hands on a MTB, so not sure what she is doing down there, if she tries to do 180 on an MTB it will take forever.

maybe she thinks 180 minutes will suffice...

Click on the pic for the “feed” nothing on the normal insta page. She has a lot of stuff on there from past 24 hrs. By looks of it I don’t think an Ironman is happening. She has her kids with her and driving 6 hrs in a van to get to some place.

So it's her, her kids, the blonde chick, and a cheap huffy bike? 

No way this is happening.

If serious, they would have had a bike driven in from across the border in the Dominican Republic, where there are decent bike shops.

But I suppose this makes a better story.

I wonder if she brought her strava linked GPS?

The bike leg will take 9-12 hrs on the huffy alone. She ain’t doing an Ironman distance today.

Oh ok, well in that case she has a few days to settle in. Maybe she can find a better bike by then, she seemed in a big rush to find the bike and was happy to settle for the huffy.

Just going on something I read on ST.  I could be wrong, happened once, on a Tuesday afternoon back in the summer of '72 IIRC. :whistling:

She literally has no idea how hard this is going to be... 180km on a full carbon TT bike is tough... I reckon injury straight away :(

Also, the logistics are just going to kill her. A f*ck up this bad on day 1???

Who’s looking after her kids she has with her for the next 50 days? 

This is so not going to happen legitimately.

I think she updated it last week, you probably haven't seen that post being on NBN and all.
