Phew!  It seemed awfully close there for a minute!

Was reading through the affletes info pack last night, there's a lot of stuff, I'm about half way though ...

Well, if you could summarise it all into a couple of paras, then point me in the right direction when we're there, that would be great

Hokori - last year's is on their website - I guess that's what Pingu's been reading, unless she is extra special and been sent this year's one?!?!?!?!

 Yes, that's pretty much what it said. 

Hokori, yes Rafis right, it's on the website under athletes info (I think) it's a pdf with about 50 pages, it's last years but I can't imagine it's changed much, I think it's still swim a bit, bike a bit and run(hahahaah) a bit.

M...eldy, have you seen Mouses Lanza designs?  I'm thinking the one with 2013 under the extravalanza.  Also .. maybe pink!

Looks good.  Is that the back, do you have anything on the front?

01/05/2013 at 12:12

I STILL need to order mine.  I have not checked my Twitter so I am not ignoring anyone who may have answered me there, but are we free-styling or is there a design that was agreeed?

Schmunks - what's the best way to contact you at the moment? With your reduced internet access? Mail, FB, Twitter, text?

Pingu - yep, that's the back. Just the logo on the front.

Schmunks - I have a vague memory of people agreeing on 'ExtravaLanza 2013' as a basis, then doing what they wish after that.

I am going out to Lanza next thursday, (blimey in a week's time!!!)

and was planning a big 6 days biking then 3 days recovery

Lanza is only a C race after all


re C02 cannisters - don't take your own, just buy them at the expo then ditch them for the way home.  Airlines get all funny about it

I went and read it too. It is actually quite deep in content like Pingu said.

OC, I wish I had done the same thing and acclimate but the after race was planned as a family break, but I only got the break now yet everything is arranged.

So far my last peak week looks like a taper week lol. Motivation so so but at least I got a really nice 2.5k in 50min swim yesterday plus some run/walk (15/60).

Only 5 more training days until taper  (well less training than the "way too little" i have been doing) last big effort will be SA's half IM at the weekend assuming the Osteo can work some magic on my knee tonight anyway.

The only time ive been stopped with C02 was at the airport coming back from Lanza in 07.

Will anyone be taking a track pump, would be useful for when we rebuild our bikes at chez pirate?  Thats assuming everyone remembers to deflates tyres?

While we're on the subject;

Top Tip 529832. if its hot when racking, remember to deflate your tyres, you dont want to arrive in T1 to find a blow out on race morning.

I was going to take one of these - its good to 160psi. I'll also bring some small pliers, a few screwdrivers and some other bits and pieces just in case

I do believe there are organised swims on the Weds/Thurs/Friday mornings ... I intend to be at the Weds/Thurs at least, would be a good meeting place for anyone out that early and for any that are not staying at Pirate Base Camp
