  1. Noosa Legends are able to enter from today until March , I decided to get mine out of the way and shared my Noosa link on Facebook, a lot of my friends clicked on the link and have entered as well , seems a loop hole but a good one 👍
  2. Geeeez you speak some shit Ron !! 55-59 cruiser group ????? I guess that will change when you reach that age group! I raced Kawana yesterday 55-59 , came 2nd would have came 3rd in 50-55, The guy who won Noosa 55-59 was a minute quicker than the winner of 50-54 yep certainly the cruisers !!😡

    Noosa Tri 2018

    I changed my wave start from legends to age group, which added 2 hours into my start time. starting at 8.40 made sure the heat and swell were certainly up and was in for a long day , Luckily I did picking up 2nd 55-59 male Fantastic event as usual and will be back for # 24 next year 🤔

    Noosa Tri 2018

    Just changed from Legends wave to age group and now start 2 hours later 😳
  6. Very sad about kerbside ☹️
  7. The chocolate is the best !! I’ll agree it’s not for everyone, I have a shake for breakfast then on night shift, instead of stopping and picking up a dirty servo pie I’ll have a man shake :))
  8. Try the Man Shake !! I was hovering around 86kg and not getting any lighter, started the man shake at the start of the year and now sitting on 73kg , my race times have dropped heaps !! Working shift work plays havoc with your diet and training, the man shake was an easy fix :))
  9. Totally agree, my next age group ( in 2 years time ) I would have been on the podium and 10 seconds off second place 😳
  10. My splits, 21.46 1.03.27 42.35 2.12.15 17th 55-59 5th Aussie home not sure why they made us old farts go 2nd last wave ??? The wind was howling by then 😳
  11. Thanks Mate for all your work and efforts hope to catch up at port ..... an original Ozfatter
  12. Phew Looks like I’ll scrape in !! Currently 13th on 64 points , I decided to save a grand and not race St Kilda ,lucky I’m on old bastard and makes qualifying heaps easier , although it’s doesn’t seem fair you race in your current age group but qualify in the age group above depending on your age, gives you a huge advantage! Oh well I guess I’ll wait until tomorrow 😡

    Rio Team

    I wouldn't right Ash off v Gwen in the run, when you consider the amount of work Ash does making ground up on the bike . Ash has to be a certainty ...Smash it Ash !!!
  14. Hi, just wondering when the medals are being posted out ? Cheers
  15. Who cares ?? Still a 1500 mtr swim, I swam the shortened 3.8k Caloundra swim last Sunday and didn't hear too many complaints about being shortened ! Mooloolaba waves break right on a shallow beach, huge potential for spinal injuries, I'd rather a safe swim for all abilities

    Bribie race three

    Yep they thought it was amusing that I won my ag in race 2 long course and then won the short course in race 3 oh well another coffee mug

    Bribie race three

    Great day at Bribie !! Dumb arse entered the short course by mistake Tried to change but no luck, pity because I was doing well in the series ... My bad
  18. Yep spot on Speedy !! I got a 6 minute penalty at Gundy for the same thing, they don't seem to worry about the blocking and drafting but when you come along an overtake the lot .... Safely they ping you !! I agree some big packs yesteday,
  19. I saw a guy get red carded for crossing the centre line passing a pack, he still continued and see he came second in his cat, ??
  20. Yep I think a dozen ironman races and 2 Kona trips ticks the box for real races !! I can understand Spartans frustrations as he would probably won yesterday even half fit.
  21. Actually I think Bribie caters for the guns as well, yesterday the early waves didn't have the usual current assisted swim which gave the swimmers a bit more advantage , as the majority we all love the bike course, unfortunately for Spartan he was taken out by someone who would obviously struggle on any course or any training ride !! I decided to leave my tt rig at home and lower myself and ride a Malvern Star roadie, hmmm wonder if that's the first time a Malvern Star has podiumed ??
