  1. i've heard it will avoid wooly road BUT I don't think it'll necessarily be a very fast course.. there will be fast sections but much of the same (crap surfaces, false flats, slight inclines) with quite a few u-turns each lap. i'd expect 600-900m of gain over the 90. i'll miss the old loops - part of what made the race iconic IMO. love that course.

    saw quite a few folks pulled up on old castlereigh just after exiting the industrial area... wonder if there was some glass or something on the road near that last corner?

    I'm always in on home turf. Standard this year. Should be a lot more people racing this year - I've heard double the numbers from '17 are pre-rego'd already. Fyi to all; this will be the third consecutive weekend of sports in Husky (LCW, then Sand n Sea Festival, then Little Husky) so locals may be a bit cranky on the roads... ride early and avoid Jervis bay road

    yeah that would be for sure.. you never know how or where the TO will take a measurement though.. i'm sure theres a protocol but i've been to some races with some odd results!

    Been cooler than normal in the Riff too? Haven't used a wetty there since the temp range was changed by TA. Maybe 2013 or 2014? Anyone know if were riding again in the industrial estate? Seems like the course changes every other year..

    Pumped to return again. Who else is in? Cooler temps so far this month. Could be nice on the second lap of the run
  7. Any word on swim start format? Deep water? Beach? Pontoon?

    I'm in. Looking forward to it. Love racing in Canberra. Should be a cracker with a big field!
  9. Hey mate i bought one directly from ROKA. Sign up to their newsletter - you'll get a discount code for 15 or 20% (can't recall).. I bought the mid-range Maverick and IIRC it was $540 or so shipped.
  10. Taking the camper next weekend to Kurnell. Any locals know a good spot to park the camper overnight? Would be arriving in evening and obviously heading off early.. Cheers
  11. i used to live in ottawa - same city as him. really nice and thoughtful guy.
  12. A lot of fun. Swam ok (for me) and exited with about 5 other guys. We rode hard and ended up picking up small groups of twos and threes throughout the bike to finish with about 20 of us! Great fun, really different and a real shame that's the only DL race for the season!
  13. If it's run like this (concurrently) all the time, it'll never 'take-off'. Needs to be clear and well-separated waves and minimum confusion. It'd also be awesome to see more draft-legal races as organisers have been inert. Done right, with: interesting courses (shorter bike courses which are more spectator friendly i.e. 5x4km loops or something) and big gaps between age groups these could be a lot of fun and much more interesting to both participate in AND watch. A lot of work to do.
  14. 3.14 & 3.15 http://www.triathlon.org.au/Assets/Triathlon+Australia+Digital+Assets/2016+2017+RCR+Upd.pdf Basically, it has to be a road bike with "normal" wheels (no discs/minimum of 12 spokes) and no clip ons. At the draft-legal event in March, the TO's tried to tell me that my garmin mount on the front was not allowed however it ended up being fine.. edit to add..
  15. i'm heading there.. doing the draft-legal.. (need ass-kicking for motivation to swim more!)
