  8. Yes, very, very excited. Thanks Peter. It has been a 20 year journey beginning with a Triple-M sprint race at Narrabeen in 1994. I still have the singlet. I owe the sport my fitness and well being and therefore to be able to race at Kona is a bonus and an honour. And thank you to Andrew Messick for your vision.
  9. Eurozone in crisis - c'mon Lance, help out Spain and Italy and throw a few dollars in for Greece. This is all that the 'P'ED's Bernanke asks of you.
  10. Browsed but not found any Awards night photos. Has anyone searched for and found some photos? e.g. Multi finisher snaps.
  11. TUv5.0 said "New technique with a screw going down the middle is very very effective." is on the money here. Less invasive than a plate - I broke my right clavicle in January 2005 and was able to do Forster in April 2005 with screw still in place. The only request from the doc was "Please don't crash!" - that would have been ugly. Anyway, screw removed after the race - no problems since. It was also the time that I discovered "Spinervals" - "Hi, I'm coach Troy" - good stuff.
  12. Congrats Big Chris and Mark - really, really great news
  13. Happy birthday Macca - all the best for the months and year ahead. Of course, this is the time of year that IM Oz Forster was held. Voice of IM Mike spent many a birthday in Oz - Happy birthday Mike. And to Spaceman too. Have a great day boys.

  17. Cheers - Thanks Smitty All the best at Taupo - go number 1156 Rocket
  18. Yes, wishing you a fast recovery tortoise. The good vibes from the Trannies certainly helped me when I did my collarbone a few years back now. All the best Rocket
  19. Congratulations Smitty - Absolutely brilliant. And to Nella, hope you had a fantastic day out there. Rocket
  20. Go well Smitty - also Marc and Charlie C. Have an awesome trip and and even better race. Take it all in and enjoy - again for some ;-) All the best Rod
  21. Absolutely Sensational Paul - Fantastic All the best for Chloe's double swim. Rocket
  22. All the best Paul - yes, in the early Ironman training days back in 2001 you mentioned that you would like to swim the Channel. That time has arrived. The determination that you showed in Ironman has never diminished and it will see you through the swim. Looking forward to having a Heineken or three with you. Cheers, Rocket.
  23. PS: The sound of a motorbike is a powerful anti-motivator - more Harleys on the course will solve the problem :-) R
  24. Safe racing (driving) is the priority in the end - hanging out on the right is not safe racing (driving). More than one contributor since PlazBot first referred to it earlier has identified this as the main concern. Agreed. And surely sensible and fair TOs would observe pace lining rather than roaring in with a sin-bin. Rocket
