Entries Open 19th May 2012?
I think I will start to celebrate once I get off the bike.
OC, that was a good overview of the course, I just need to work out where I cycled last month and if they are part of the course.
Did you use any aerobars? I am thinking not taking them as I was gripping on to the handlebars and focusing on the road due to wind.
What's the cut off for swim plus bike again, given that this is a standard 17 hr cut off? Is it 10 hrs or 10.5 hrs? I can't think what the standard cut off time is. Can anyone remember?
I'm just thinking about OC saying that the novice group made it around the bike in 8.
Just checked. Assuming a 17 hr cut off (which I'm certain it is) it's a 10.5 hr cut off for the swim/bike so if swim is 1.45 inc trans then that's 8hrs 45 mins left.
you will be fine mouse
I used a TT bike......, (but not with deep section wheels) If you are on a road bike I would definitely add clip on tri bars - most of the climbing is long and gradual, so you can sit on your tri bars trying to get out of the wind, rather than being full out of the saddle efforts. There are a several times you need to hoof it out of the saddle, but not that many K in total
On a hill climb TT we did up Tabayescu, (not on the course), I was on my tri bars for 3/4 of it and my speed went up 3 kph when ever I dropped back onto them........
I can add a course profile here when I figuer out hhow if anyone wants it.....
Mouse, with the base you have now and the extra incentive of it being Lanza youll train like no tomorrow.
Same here. I got a decent set of leg warmers, some good gloves and overshoes and a warm skull cap.
That, combined with many many layers kept me warm on the odd occasion we saw -6C mornings.
