  1. I had a Varia - up until yesterday morning - where it came off my mount for some unknown reason, while we were out riding.

    It was fantastic -- it was good for cyclists following behind me as it would also notify them if a car was approaching - as the red light would flash faster.

    Rode this morning with a old traditional rear light and had to keep looking behind me to see if any cars approaching

  2. +1 for HOTW


    Also Auckland OD Tri in 2012....somehow totally got lost -- could not see any buoys anywhere -- 1st and last time I've ever done backstroke in a race.....water safety pointing me in the right direction --- even though I still couldn't see any buoys or other swimmers 

  3. Just got a gift card for the race I entered - $20 ( all others have been transferred ) -  all i bought was some socks and a beanie for my hubby - at least we could combine the gift cards -- just had to pay $10 for shipping on 2 items we don't really need

  4. My hubby got his registration link as well yesterday for the 70.3, I havent' got mine for the IM - but thinking now we will try transfer to Cairns -- least that should be good as we live in QLD -- and since the border isn't opening until at least April 2021-- the WA premier might just keep it closed until a vaccine is rolled out ( maybe 2022? ) 🤬

  5. It just was interesting to see that some women missed out on a spot when they performed better then some of the males that did qualify ..Solely because the numbers weren't there for the females so they got less spots assigned.

    10 spots were assigned to females and 65 to males

    The data in the graph was adjusted down so every one was for an example, s a  25 year old male 

  6. We had a bit of time on our hands and so did this chart below

    Given that Ironman are encouraging females - and that Cairns had a small cohert of women


    • All Kona slots taken, with no roll down
    • Times – Gender adjusted – 11% allowance for females; and Age adjusted (closely based on 70.3 published data as below)




    Graph of Adjusted Race Times versus Age group

    • Blue dots – Male Qualifiers
    • Red dots – Female Qualifiers
    • Black Squares – Females missing allocation due to very restricted slots

    I would check with them, it depends on how they will raise the credit, if they raise it as a cover the full ticket including the active fee then there should be nothing to pay (that would more or less be a transfer), but if they just raise it as the cost of the ticket (so excluding active), then there will be an active fee to pay on top.

    At least you get a credit, you are in a better spot than us who have had Port cancelled on us twice now, it's now May 2021. Not sure if we will ever get an event over 500 here until there is a vaccine. I reckon the council won't like it.


    I had entered Port as well-- I had transferred to the weekend just gone but now 2021

  8. Now that this is cancelled -- what is everyone else doing that has registered?


    I was thinking of taking the credit -- but think it will then cost money to enter into another race - active fee?- can't seem to find any info about any hidden costs.

    Wa border won’t open for 18 months. Same as NT have said. 

    its just WA people don’t understand what that means yet because they can still go to the pub. 

    Pity they don't do a travel bubble between states like QLD, SA, NT and Tasmania

  10. If all goes well and we can fly to NZ for the IM 2021 - what is the best way to travel with 2 bikes each. Thinking of doing the IM (TT bike) and then doing some touring on our touring bikes. Courier a bike ahead or pay for extra baggage ? Can't seem to find prices for extra baggage and also if courier ahead -- which company is best/cheapest
