  1. If I was a betting man, I would put down money on Busso being 40 slots in 2018. It was so many in 2017 as they were trying to bump the numbers up to secure a sponsor for the next 2 years
  2. Ad mentioned above mate, they are the same (time for a new shop!). The 7800 arms are actually used on the 7900 units as the 7900 standard cranks couldn't be milled and tapped to retrofit the SRM spider like the 7800 crank arms could. Essentially if you add 7900 rings to your "7800" SRM set, they will be indentical
  3. I'm sure a few of the locals will make him feel "welcome" Zed. Maybe trannies should run a betting ring with odds on how he will cheat this time. Snorkel? Pull bouy? Holding onto the boat? Neoprene shorts? The possibilties are endless!
  4. 80 years old or not there is no excuse. Those roads in Kings park are very narrow and if you didn't cross fully into the other lane you wouldn't give a 1m gap as required by law in WA. Also, the fact he says he will get back in his car and run the cyclist over would be enough for me to take action too. WA has to have the worst drivers I have ever come across and the treatment of cyclists is appalling. I'm not remotely suprised the rider reacted the way he did.
  5. Sadly this has happened more than once in the past few years. Perth drivers are bad enough as it is, then add to the fact some of them have the "all about me" attitude, things go south quickly.
  6. From the race director himself. This Robson fella is a wanker of the highest order: Australia Day Ultra and the subsequent Disqualification of Mark Robson. On Saturday the 20th January, 2018, I had the privilege of co-Race Directing the Australia Day Ultra with Alexis Oosterhoff and Event Director Ron McGlinn for the 100k/50k/25k distances. During this event, it is our duty to ensure the safety, etiquette and fairness for all competitors and volunteers alike. As this event earns IAU (International Association of Ultra Runners) labelling and the course is measured and certif
  7. Pretty solid artical by Matty. One thing he didn't touch on is the "value" (monetary) of a pro licence. If you are a "pro" and take out a $2000 licence, that means if you race 3 Ironmans (or 2 and 2 x 70.3) in a year you are ahead financially. Couple this with a swim that is less rough (ie sit on the back) than an AG mass start as well as bike racking priority etc, it makes sense these "pros" renew their licence every year
  8. Hope you stay all clear into the future Flanman. I am one for wearing gloves on the bike for the reason below, but the sun protection is definitely a worthy cause.

    Sure can. It may take 24-48hrs but it worked for me. You just need to make sure the settings are configured correctly

    Busso will always be tough to Qualify at mate. Lots of people out chasing PBs around there. The pointy end of the age group races are (generally) quite drafty. For what it's worth, the few times I have qualified have been Busso once and Cairns twice, whereas I am ~60kg, so the harder bike/run courses suit me. I think the Asia Pac champs with extra slots is always a good bet. Another option is to travel to an Ironman that is very close to Kona (pre or post Kona date) as a lot of the age group big hitters are racing Kona. Looking at the volume of your training (without knowing intensi
  13. Hoffy nailed it. Happened at Busso 70.3 in May this year. Less people turned up than there was spots on offer.
  14. PM'd you mate. To clarify the above, there is no need to check slope according to SRM - I was confusing it with another set I changed the battery in.
