Mooloolaba Tri 2017


Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

No visors in race pack (ill just have to make do with the 20 or so visors i have). Asics pulled out as major sponsor.

No drink bottle either... sad.. Haha

 

Looks like numbers are way way down in the fun run.... will be interested inn tri numbers as queue at rego was tiny...

Conditions are pretty good, it's just that shore dump to look out for as far as I could tell.

I hadn't noticed the lack of visor, but I'm sure the expo gets smaller and smaller each year.

Mootri has been slowing dying for the past few years. It's way too expensive

And yet Noosa keeps growing...

 

Numbers have been declining for last 4 to 5 years.. hasn't sold out in that period..

Noosa has the history here. I love mool, and could afford it when I had free accom. I loved watching the itu go round, though less so as a sprint distance.

Been coming for a few years but I reckon this is the quietest I've seen it - unfortunately my age group has one of the biggest entries I've competed in - nearly double last year!

Yep. Tables galore at most restaurants i can't see them going another 25 years

I made it.

3:16.13

Not quite a positive bike run split, but only because the bike was slow.

Or, more specifically, the bloke on the bike was slow.

Thanks to Fozzy for the cheer along.

I'm ok with that. Reflective of my training quality in the past six months. Some serious work needed for Port. I can't wait to get back to riding my real bike on real roads. Loved the ride today. Ride like there's no run was the plan. While not a fast bike time the increased effort was reflected in a slow run. So I guess mission accomplished.

 

Perfect conditions. Mooloolaba at its best.

 

You're welcome Tyno. My Tranny hat and bum bib didn't get a single shout out. Have Trannies gone back in the closet?

Great effort and quite close to what you'd planned on...

I didn't go this year - I have done about 10 USM/WTC Mooloolaba's + the previous QSTS Mooloolaba twice (that one was fun :smile1: ):

  • OD is my "thing",
  • had free accom' as younger son just relocated to Sippy Downs,
  • it's just over 2 hours from home.

BUT

  • it is too expensive,
  • I always feel like mere rent-a-crowd for the ITU event,
  • the event was designed from the outset as media friendly (camera angles and technical) over athlete friendly (safe, fair, fun) - as one of the original race committee explained as he lectured me on event organisation (Mool v HBT).

I raced today, it was a good event as always. My run was a run/walk due to Achilles issues but I enjoyed it anyway.

I'll be back, it's more accessible, less expensive and the run course is nicer than Noosa.

Yeah, she did well.

Thankfully she didn't beat me like at Cronulla, but I was shuffling scared.

We paid for the early start.

It was a good idea.

Yep, did that for Mool and Noosa each time (wanted to race with mates anyway). Worth the extra dollars, and that's coming from me the scrooge!

My First Mooloolaba and only my second OD race.

2:30 was my goal and finished with a 2:29, Port training appears to be coming along well.

 

Having raced Noosa for my first time last year and Mooloolaba this year, I preferred the Mooloolaba bike over Noosa but the Mooloolaba run was shit!!!

 

I think I’ll be back to have another go.
