Sweet! There will be a few of us swimming/riding so we'll organise riding some of the course. Busso water was spectacular at the weekend.

So being in WA, should that be a 30km ride to take into account the shortcuts?

From in town out to the Beach Road turn-off is about 10km each way following the bike course.  You could turn around there but say you went to the end of Beach and did 30.

In all seriousness though, going out along Beach Rd isn't a bad idea to familiarise yourself with it as it's probably the most dangerous part of the course due to the huge amount of competitors there on the first lap and the gaps in the peppermint trees which create unexpected sideward gusts when the wind is up.  Nothing serious but a lot of dodgy bike handling goes on out there.

So they'r bumping the swim distance up?

Nah, they threw in an extra run when the swim got cancelled to break up the packs on the bike :P :lol:

I think I get there Wednesday, although I am supposed to be at the ghetto 70.3 the weekend before so might not make it till Thursday.

I didnt speak ill of any event nor am I the naming rights sponsor ;)

I think it's rolling start for the full now, so probably less congestion?

loi yeah it's a shame, but with new swim, no way they could have had a mass start. I reckon 2019 it will be back to round the jetty.

I don't get angry. No energy for that. 

 

I am genuinely worried that it won't happen despite the "it's in the pipeline" stuff. 

 

But either way I have had a great experience. 

 

Off this week to get blood tests. 

 

Cheers all

Don't worry FFF. It will happen. Let us worry about that.

Put all your energy into getting yourself into the right shape to do it. Be that getting the blood tests done, getting rid of the headaches, or going out and completing a mega-block session.

You're going to have a hard enough time out there doing this thing with 200 Trannies all riding on your back. You don't need to worry about petty stuff, like actually being entered. ;)

I am heading down on the Friday before the race. I will be finishing not racing.

Does anyone know a good butcher in Busso? I need some meat to throw in the water to attract the sharks so that I don't have to swim.😀

I'm getting in on Wednesday night.  I'm not sure that I will catch you guys at the Coffee shop.  I'm more into Pies and Beers.  Are you guys heading to the Pub on Monday?

Have you ever tried to deal with Ironman on something that doesn't attract an active fee? It's brutally slow.
