at IMUK the refs were VERY strict and stopped any bikes at dismount and took off their chip off. my missus saw a few people being carted off DNFIC - got to be soul destroying.

Quite a few people DNFd near my marshalling point because they knew that because of their pace there was no point starting the third lap.  Most were ok-ish, hacked off but ok... but one girl cried in my arms for a good minute sobbing "I trained all year for this..."...  that brought back memories...

What's the issue with chips being removed? You can still finish, although you won't get an official time. In Germany they tried to physically box cougie in, but he jumped over the fence and ran the marathon anyway.

If you're going to technically dnf due to cut off, you can still run it. It's your choice whether you want to "rio" (hurrah!) or "JD" (boo!). If you choose to quit, no point asking for sympathy.

"In Germany they tried to physically box cougie in"

lol - that's such a lovely mental image. You'd need a pretty heavy duty lid and catch...

Sore shins I am not allowed the tattoo so hubby is having a pendant made for me instead
And as I said before I was fully expecting to be pulled off.

You can finish with your chip and still not get an official time in Switzerland (but I guess that is becuase I must have hid from the marshals cos they didn't know I was on the course still)

Stealth racing.... interesting!

"To JD" - a soft form of buckering, where you get to the run course first

"To Bear" - a persistent form of buckering, where every year you join a list saying you're going to do an ironman, but quietly bottle it. You also join the sex offenders list.

"Have you Beared?" - "Have you taken out the cancellation insurance?"

Remind me - what's the definition of 'buckering'?

an excellent comedy start to the morning!

SVT- Buckers joined the forum, signed up for ironman, started cycling, then started claiming that he was Contadoor, only faster and that he would tear up the road when he did ironman, then when it came to the race he decided not to bother as it would be too easy. None of his claims about his incredible bike skill were ever verrified by anyone other than him. So 'to Bucker' has come to mean that you wimp out of a race at the last minute.

oxy - fair enough, but were he and Contador ever seen in the same room at the same time?

Here's hoping I never get anything named after me, but life isn't like that...

well, no, its a fair point, although Buckers was about 15 stone!
06/08/2009 at 09:01
So like Contador, but faster downhill...

He emigrated to Canada, and then reappeared after a year saying that Peter Reid had moved in next door to him, and that Reid was being trained to ride a bike better, and fly jet fighter planes, by buckers.

However to his credit, buckers never beared, as far as I know
