Therefore does this mean:

Swim: Wurf on bike by 04:17 - 04:20am

Wurf off the bike at approx 08:30am Sydney time (Assuming a 4:10 ride if it's a good day and not too much wind)

Race finish 11:10 -11:20am Sydney time.

Do we have a list of people from here we should be looking out for. Full Names.

It's a bit irritating, but the race (inc Nice Worlds) feeds only pop up 5mins race start, so if you can't find it on FB, don't panic, it will be there.

And wishing a great mate Darren all the best for his first taste of Kona racing this year. We’ve been friends for over 25 years. Couldn’t meet a nicer bloke and family.

Once I learned to not click on the first thing that says "XYZ ironman is live now" the FB access has been pretty good i think..

 

1) Like/follow Ironman Now on FB.

2) On the day the first item in your feed will be some link (dont click on that as it takes you to some subscription service)

3) keep scrolling down and there will be a video playing with a little red "live" sign. This usually starts at transition time well before the start..

4) You can also go back and watch the previous hour(s) footage if you want to via different links on this page

14kmh. lets hope it is wrong and it is stronger than that, otherwise it may well be the Rookies day.

Looking at the Hawi wind forecast is a better indication than Kona. That says 37kmh.

Kona wind speed v Queen K wind speed are vastly 2 different things.

i couldn’t work out the winds there.  

It felt like no wind or a slight tail wind starting out on the Queen K, then mid way between Waikoloa Village and the the left turn towards Hawi it was a massive crosswind (Easterly) coming down from Mauna Kea. Going up to to Hawi it seemed like a Northerly cross wind off the top of the island, then coming home - once you get back on the Queen K it was a bloody stiff Southerly all the way home......

This was 2012.

I just hope it’s a bloody hard day. These last few years have been easy.

I think they wake me up at 5 for my drugs, so I should be on the air (but slightly off the air) from about then.

A vasectomy shouldn’t knock you round that much.  

You are really playing it up me thinks.
