"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!

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

true, and i would have considered letting him baby sit.

I'm not sure even that would be wise though - when you got home after three hours, the child would be able to bench press half a metric tonne, break the hour record in track cycling, and pilot space shuttles. After so much excitement it would be very hard to get them to settle down and go to sleep.

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. Innit.

point well made Candy.

esp like the whether you want to "rio"!

And as I said before I was fully expecting to be pulled off.


Sounds like me, every Friday night.  Rarely turns out that way though.

Bringing back some lovely memories. Buckers is/was a nice chap though on meeting him. I wish he was still on here.

Regarding the finish or not to finish debate if you ignore IM rules about cut offs the pirate points system clearly states (somehwere) that a finish is a finish- so get your pendant, ignore the doubters and kick ass next year Rio.

it was the week before Vermont, so I buckered.  i neither JD'd nor, heaven forbid, beared though.
