Water looks relatively calm but there's obviously a bit of a breeze blowing.

Commentator just described bike course. Apparently it's fairly sheltered from the wind until about 60k, then likely to have a tailwind to 110k before turning to come back into the wind - just when you don't need it.

Nice swimming Mr Ro !

It's rather civilized, watching a chum go through all this while I'm kicking back on the sofa with a glass of something nice. I mean - I do *enjoy* the hustle and bustle of the real thing, but ... my feet are comfy, my nose isn't burnt, my throat isn't hoarse, and my forearms aren't all hurty from leaning on the barriers.

I'm supposed to be watching this from the turbo but seem to have got stuck in the armchair.  Will have to get up soon though, potato is nearly baked
