So just how stupid would it be to do Lanza as my first IM??

They are all hard.  Plenty of people do hard ones as their first effort.  You just have to train accordingly.

Well I'm a marathoner (or I was until recently finding myself here), so perhaps not as mad as the rest of you but certainly getting there.....

But I found myself on the 'dark side' as a result of a drunken bet, which ended with the words "honestly, just hard can it be...". I'm sure we've all be there! So, here I am,  losing my Tri cherry on the 19th - the day Lanza opens...coincidence??

I was planning to gain my Pirate badge of honour at the Outlaw next year, but M...eldy keeps telling me to MTFU and come and play in Lanza!

So can I add my colours to the mast and join you for ExtrvaLanza ???

I'm staying in closet!!! (for now)

Lanza is my dad's 70th birthday, so I either need a major lottery win to pay for him and mom to come and support OR I gotta find another event...

I need to work out potential cost of adventure anyone got a view on where pirate accommodation might be for ExtravaLanza? Flights? EasyJet?

Flights - I am using monarch this year.
Flights were about 250 a person, including tax, baggage, bike, and inflight meal
I started with a £50 flight but it soon all builds up

I stayed down in PdC on a training camp earlier this year and it's not so bad.
(Apartamentos Arena Dorada) and it was basic but fine, and gets cheaper of you share...And located just off the course
Ie if you decide on a hotel thats basic then you should be able to Do it reasonably cheaply

This year - flying out with Monarch and back with Thomas Cook into Manchester. Yep roughly £200 for me, the bike, luggage etc..( although I used up my airmiles so the actual outlay was about £50 for the bike )

Staying at the Oasis Appts in PdC, one bedroom apartment for 6 nights, £120.

It's actually costing me more to go to The Outlaw in Nottingham.
