Looks a hoot.  Entry opens tomorrow at noon CET.  I'll (hopefully) be in.  Anyone else?

Probably me.

Waiting on a race report from my friend who just did it, but it'll be Copenhagen or Switzerland (which I had to withdraw from this year).

I do believe The Admiral is racing so you best make sure your pirate kit is pressed and clean

Yep Think the Admiral is trying to round up some of my club mates to join him

 I might even unwrap a new monaco especially.  I already have his old wetsuit but it seems to have lost a bit of pace.

I'm booking in for this one. Hope the weather's a bit better than yesterday

25/08/2013 at 16:51

Should I start a list?

I quite fancy this, but the warning about punctures along with the 15 hour cut off puts me off. The race guide says to use solid tyres - I didnt know these existed ...?

25/08/2013 at 21:41

15 hour cut off OMG better get training

Why solid tyres and yes, what are they? Where does it say that. Read lots about it but didnt see that. Presume on the bike course bit,

Having just had a quick look it's 16 hours for the women. For age groupers you start at 7.05am -sorry men, but it's women first- so no mass start, quite nice very generous swim times. Everyone out of water by 10.25 (3h20 swim) finish bike by 17.30 (7h35 bike) and 5h 30 marathon which I probably won't do but I won't take 3 and half hours to swim!!

Read abou the flint stones and solid tyres - don't know what that's about.

Britrisky - I know you had really bad luck at Outlaw with punctures but I'm sure you;ve looked at your tyres and any problems and I'm sure you won't have same problem

These seem to be the solid tyre people. http://www.greentyre.co.uk/index.php

Fint on the road = a nice pair of Gatorskins.  That said, if you do flat getting them off and on again is a real pain in the backside.

Anyway.  Flats aside it looks a cracking fast course and I'm all set to spend my cash in a few hours time.

SS - yes, my mistake, it's 16, not 15 hours - I'm seriously tempted, I bet Copenhagen's lovely ...

interested in these tyres, mind ... Will start a thread ...

26/08/2013 at 11:59

I'm in. Cash handed over. 

I've read a few reports on the race over the past few years and there doesn't seem to be a overarching view of fint based tyre Armageddon.  I figure parts of the course out in the countryside will have a risk of flint being washed off the fields and onto the roads although I'm not going to unduly sweat about it.  I have that to deal with round my neck of the woods and fingers crossed, I seem to flat about once or twice a year.

Anyway. I'll begin the training by having a beery family BBQ.

If you want pirate kit for this this, you need to get your name on the current kit order thread here.

Please take the time to read the first page as that is where you will find the answers to most of the general questions

Cheers

After months lurking on here, I guess this is a good place to make my first nervous post!

I'm in for this one for my first IM. Local for me, I live just over the bridge from Copenhagen in Sweden! 

26/08/2013 at 13:27
