You heard it here first
For those Pirates contemplating a return to IMDE for whatever reason, you may not get the chance to have a 2nd go at that course. Tthis month's national tri mag features a statement from the IMDE chief organiser saying they are giving serious consideration to moving the race to another city - there are apparently 4 vying to hold it. Some people living in the vicinity of the Finish area at Roemerberg have complained to local authorities on the grounds of the race breaking the noise abatement laws- which do state noise after 10pm must be held to a minimum. Race officials concede the point, but maintain as the WTC rules say all IM competitors will be treated alike, late finishers have the same right to a loud reception as the early ones.
Rumours of a move across to nearby city of Wiesbaden were firmly denied on the grounds that city already hosts the German 70.3. Which probably means that's where it will be.
Cougie, The apartment block my then bf lived in in Germany was older than 20 (I think) years. It was written into his lease that he had to give all visitors slippers after 10pm for noise abatement. The germans take their rules and regulations very seriously.
IW, ye got a smoking ban yet? Actually more importantly, has France got a smoking ban yet? I'm going to make all my IM decisions on the basis of where I can get the cleanest air from now on. Not China then!
more likely to end up in Munich I'd have thought.
would be good if they moved it to france, or denmark
it's a well known fact that all germans are xenophobic boors with no sense of humour
