I applaud the council for trying to make the roads as safe as possible, but I rode the course on MONDAY and they were pouring hot tar and gravel into some of the patchwork that comprises the road in Bonny Hills.

Nearly destroyed my bike with all the wet gravel sticking to my tyres,getting caught in the frame,etc.

Should they have done this 2 weeks ago? Don't know because it looks like the repairs they've done in town ( especially descending into Flynn's beach shops) is breaking up already from the rain over past 24hrs.

All I can say is , if it's wet , be VERY careful entering Davis st which leads into MFD on the way out of town.

Good luck to all.

This thread is the equivalent of hot cross buns on boxing day.

Is it too early to plan for the 7:30 Friday Trannies swim?

I’ll be on the start line for the full too. Validation race for the 2019 Kona legacy invite.

Ideally yes but probably wanted to wait till after the Easter traffic as that would create more potholes or damage the patches

Do the Pros have black numbers?  I thought I saw #9 riding their bike away from town near Town Beach after 4pm. That’s after the close of bike drop off time.

Sure glad I’m not riding a bike in a tri suit for 5-6hrs on Sunday in this weather!

I always maintain that this race is a month too late in the season.

Yep agreed. I went out this arvo and couldn't believe it. I've done a few rides along there and its very very dodgy at the moment. 

Slow down and take care on the descents folks. 

Didn’t know you were up here Willie. Might see you at the finish or Beer Mile.

My wife and kids drove the course today, comment from the missus "you should have put aero bars on your 29er"

I was going to say IP would've but he's hard core and would've had a fat bike :P

After racing that, I wished I'd ridden a fat bike
