  1. Has he not already qualified through 70.3s? Added to the list of things I wish to see: Jan to win again. And of course it's not the prince's fault he drafted. He's such a magnetic presence people just want to be near him. And the security has to be near him as well.
  2. Shorts? How do you do that? I had two pairs of tights on as well on the nether regions, top layer fleece lined, and two tops (one fleece lined) and a gilet, and beanie and gloves. There must be something wrong with me!
  3. It's WINDstopper, not fartstopper! And wrt cold climate, I'm only a few hundred miles from FP - up in Cambridge. It was only just below freezing yesterday, but with a 'feels like' of -5 or so. I like being fairly warm when I train, so that represents bloody ridiculously cold as far as I'm concerned. When we go and stay with the inlaws I wear a ridiculous amount of kit - if I moved there I'd be buying a lot of extra kit and a treadmill for winter as well.
  4. Morning jog, 4*2 mins @ goal 5k pace, 2 mins easy recov, 4:00 for 3, 3:55 for 1. Nice way to start the day - I'd call it a taper session if it wasn't on the prog. Discovery of the day: windstopper underwear. WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE?
  5. Got pretty good connection on our detached garage by installing a new modem/router (NETGEAR) one which seems to push the signal better and has fewer dropouts then using a range extender. No probs since I got that done. Before was using 4G a lot of the time. insulation - tell me and we will both know! We run from -5c to +35c and it’s terrible at both ends. Cooling - 12 inch fans by 2, but at 30+ everything sucks. I resorted to the old standby of ice slurry mixed with coke as pre race and mid session. need a fridge in the garage, but until the landlord ****s off his old CBR
  6. Isn't 'pretty serious stuff' kind of the point to having a drug sanctioning process? What he did in terms of putting it on the form isn't making it public - it's what everyone who races whilst under a TUE has to do. Going public (like he advocates) would surely be putting on twitter, or his website that, 'on day x I applied for a TUE to use y and z due to illness'. I've no particular bone against Starykowicz before this. I've loved watching him race. Balls out swim and bike and then hang on for dear life is how I'd race if I was any good. And I don't think he's a cheat. But fro
  7. Agreed with Trier. What shits me is that a few days before he lodged the TUE, Starykowicz was on Breakfast with Bob saying that TUEs are cheating, that if you have to apply to use a TUE you're so sick you shouldn't be racing, and that TUEs should be publicised. (15 or so mins in, 2019 BwB on Youtube). A week or so after this, he is still sick. He applies for a TUE (which he doesn't think should exist let alone be used). He doesn't publicise it (which he thinks should happen). The TUE as lodged is incomplete. He responds and lodges correct paperwork. He is informed that racing while
  8. Even worse when they turn off and ride off the front and stay there. Few guys I know went that route - turned up, rode off the front and got upgraded, found themselves in A-Grade with a month or two, then had to learn to ride bikes. One ended up Pro-Conti, one NRS. The second is still known for not being able to ride around corners.
  9. After that Grand Final I wish you could throw Dusty and the Tigers somewhere.Bloody terrible second half, Geelong.
  10. Names the RIB 'Medellin'?! Should be jailed for stupidity.

    Wurf watch

    They've got about 17 months to do it... Last LM2x will be Tokyo, then no lightweight racing at Olympics. Physiologically - definitely. Tech? They'd give it a good shot - it's not that technical a sport, really. Ignore all the 'I didn't make it because I wasn't born with a sliver spoon up my arse' from Wiggins, who didn't make it because he i) wasn't good enough, and ii) didn't make it because he was a bell end. Dennis would be fine, and we know Wurf works.
  12. Mate, you’re good to go. The second screen you see when you open up Zwift on your pad will have a pairing screen. Icon on the left will bring it up, spin your cranks backwards a few times to wake them up, click on Stages, good to go. Might also want to pair it for cadence, but fire away. I use dumb trainer (rollers) and LS stages.
  13. If it’s ‘avec barreur ‘ it’ll be coxed.
  14. Dunno, but 50% of your AFL choice is positive. The other 50% is a good team.
  15. I don't think you'll have to apologise for your videos or posts - you're not a self promoting oxygen thief!
  16. Evolution down in Geelong, Fitzroy Cycles used to private label bikes (forget the brand, I should remember, I kept busting them), and who made the NVS bikes that Brad Bevan used to ride?
  17. As have several other teams. It's a level of trolling I wouldn't have expected from League. Well done those clubs!
  18. Breakfast in bed is always a winner... My soon to be wife gets breakfast and coffee in bed three mornings a week - I do my bike sessions bloody early during the week, finishing when her alarm to get up goes off. She's semi-nocturnal, so doesn't mind when I am in bed before her or read two pages of my book and then fall asleep. She's pretty accepting of my need to train and race. As am I when she does. The shared hobby works well. Gardening and stuff - never thought I'd enjoy it, but it's a nice chill out, and builds time credits (we are sad enough that we do discuss this).
  19. I’ve used Lezyne strip drive on my Speed Concept around the post. Front light? Work in progress. Although I’m seriously thinking about one of those Knog bells for this season’s racing. Last time I raced it was full of brain dead idiots blocking the RHS and I’m wondering if they might respond to a bell.
  20. Also some pretty fing serious kidney issues could happen if they did...
  21. My arse he is. A bloke I know did MDS at 90Kg + and was at the time the highest ever placed GB finisher. Macca will survive. Unless he is in the same room as Sunny Garcia.
  22. Oh man, I've got to go and find mine. They include: Me and a mate smashing watermelons over our heads as Rimmer suffered past on that steep hill on the second lap of the run Wendy Ingraham signing my bald head The late, great, Bill Bell at the afterparty with a nurse on each arm, and going long after they were totally shattered. Drunken nakedness the night before the race Unfortunately in those days before camera phones we didn't get Rimmer collaring Thomas Hellriegel at the afterparty and getting him to look at his wrist and say, 'mate, mate, you've got to se
  23. Ah well! I'll just have to give him grief about what I think I remember!
  24. Any chance you've got Forster 97? Be worth rewatching that to see Rimmer's marathon. Not sure I've ever seen so much pain in my life. Other than the sunburn on my head from the bastard shaving it the day before. 4-blade my arse...
  25. I think they do - although they seem only to be available from TriUK over here - wonder if they've done a PlanetX and bought up the names?
