From the feed:

Luis Alverez of Mexico holds the record of having attended all the Ironman Races around the world – at least once! After finding out at Ironman Melbourne in March about the Cairns addition he reshuffled his already packed Ironman Schedule (Alveraz will be competing in 12 Ironman this year and has made it to the start line to ensure his record stays intact.) Two weeks again he completed the Memorial Herman Ironman in Texas; today was his 84th Ironman. He flies out first thing tomorrow to attend a board meeting, which means the Ironman record chaser will have spent more time in the air getting to Cairns than he has on the ground.

Luis told me the other day he intends to spend the entire 17hours on course today and get his money's worth. He lied! I missed the finish, he crossed the line in 13:59:00. His reason for hurrying along today? "I had until 10pm only to return the rental car"!!

I still hope he was in pirate kit.

Not posting anything for 6 months / leaving the country is not really an excuse

Hey guys, just spotted this thread! Thanks for all the positive vibes, and I sure was in Pirate kit OC, no other way to 'race'  Got lots of comments and support along the way, especially with Jen and her 'Team Kanga' top as well, but be great to line up with a few other Pirates again one day.

Will knock out the race report this weekend, promise
