  1. I suggest you ring them if you haven't received an email with a link to complete your registration. Ring them at 1300 761 384 or (+61) 7 5430 6700. I too deferred from 2020 IMWA to 2021 IMWA and didn't receive a link. Apparently they have been having issues with the bulk emails. I rang them and it got sorted straightaway.
  2. I commute to work daily on my road bike (only less than 20 minutes ride) and definitely would not do it on the tri bike. I've done so on a few occasions when the roadie is in the workshop and never felt as safe, can't brake quickly enough, difficult to maneuver around pedestrians etc. Also, depending on the security of your bike storage, you don't want to be risking the tri bike getting stolen. Like gregb, I did a search on 99 bikes, there appear to be plenty of choices less than $1k. Whether they would be in stock or not, is another matter as I hear bike shops are struggling to get suppl
  3. I'm considering doing the 3 day one. But my long rides have been 90-100km and long runs been 20kms for the last 5 weekends, so pretty sure I'll struggle in the later stages. Plus, have not ran a stand alone marathon for over 11 years, so not sure how I'll go doing this on my own in a non race environment. Will decide closer to the end of the week and let you guys know how I go!
  4. Thanks for this! Hear, hear! Same tri club as Daz and Khloe, so I have interacted with Khloe a bit (not that much as she does a fair bit of training on her own). And I have to say, apart from being a gun triathlete, she is a wonderful human being and a great personality!
  5. I think the system can be further refined (means more work for Ironman, if they want to do it) is to have a cut off for qualifying within a certain % of the finishing time of the winner in each age group. They have done it in the past for Pros, if for example there are 2 spots but the 2nd place finisher is outside the range, he/she doesn't get the spot. And spots that cannot be claimed because they finished outside the range, gets rolled to another age group. It still won't be 100% fair as you can have a very fast winner (e.g. former pro) in your age group and everyone else would b
  6. Not boring at all, thanks for sharing! Always keen to read someone else's experience, especially on the same course. Well done and congrats on the AG win!
  7. Deepest condolences to you and your family. That is a wonderful tribute for your mum. Thanks for sharing.
  8. Thanks for reading! Those are the only pair of closed shoes his feet could fit into at the moment (they grow too fast) haha!
  9. Thanks for reading! Well done on your race too!
  10. Thanks for reading guys!
  11. Great write up, congrats on the PB! Considering the turn of events for you, that's a really great result!
  12. Race report in the following link if anyone is interested. Well done to all those who raced! http://just-tri-hard.blogspot.com/2020/09/sunshine-coast-703-2020.html
  13. 169 M35-39 Kevin Siah Depending on the conditions, hoping to post a new PB! My wife said this morning, she has never seen me this excited about a race. Yes, we are very fortunate and massive appreciation for all the work done by all those involved, just so we can all have a play in the sun!
  14. $600 of Virgin credits that expired last month, booked through Webjet. Went back and forth between Virgin and Webjet to have it extended but to no avail. Webjet claimed they sent me an email with an expiry date but somehow I cannot locate it (how do you prove that you did not receive something?) Another $800 of Malaysia Airlines credits due to expire in January, I'll make sure I get in contact before the expiry date this time. And a deferred entry to Ironman WA next year. Everything else, I was able to cancel for free.
  15. I initially asked if I could transfer my entry now to Cairns end of September and they agreed. But I decided against it as I haven't quite done the mileage yet. I then put in a deferral request to WA in 2021 but it was rejected (I guess because my entry was rolled over from IM Port originally in May 2020). So I'll just have to wait now and continue training, with the likelihood of not being to travel over in December.
  16. Registrations are still open, just saying 😀 I'm in! For my 4th year in a row, looking forward to it! Especially with all the uncertainty prior to this.
  17. Yes, looking forward to Sunshine Coast 70.3, fingers crossed!
  18. Felt IA - Ultegra Di2, Power 2 Max, Parcours wheels Boardman Air 9.8 with Ultegra mech. Both bikes are around 5 years old now, surely that is time for a new bike!
  19. I'm placing bets that it will go ahead and training accordingly. Heck, if state borders are still closed by then, we can have it as QLD 70.3 championships!
  20. Same sentiments here. My (self prescribed) training block for Ironman Busso begins in a couple of weeks. Despite positive signs that community sport and sporting events would go ahead, I'm not sure if Ironman will want to go ahead if the numbers are small with international borders likely to still be in place. I had a look at last year's results and the % of internationals for Busso and Cairns are over 40% whereas for Port Mac, Sunny Coast, Western Sydney are only in the range of 10-20%.
  21. I'm currently using Ultegra Di2 on my tri bike since 2015 (so none of this synchro shift etc. stuff) and when I'm back in Malaysia for holidays I ride my sister's with SRAM Etap. I find it harder to press the shift buttons on the side bars with the Etap but this could be easily fixed by cutting holes on the bar that goes around the shifters.
  22. I'm tipping this and Western Sydney will have higher chances of going ahead compared to Port and Cairns. Especially Cairns with historically higher % of foreign participants. Having state borders lifted and approval to go ahead is one thing, not sure if it is commercially viable to run the event with say, 60% occupancy when international travel is most likely to be disallowed.
  23. I'm doubtful Sunny Coast 70.3 would happen at this stage. But still keeping hopeful that Busso IM would happen in Dec. In my own tiny world, I would be gutted if I progressed my IM training build only to be told that it would be off about 4-6 weeks before the event (like what happened for Port).
