Nice work Rosey. Congrats and much respect to the 3rd place 40-44 AG at IMUK (don't some people talk an industrial amount of shite ?).

And what a cool race it was at the front of the Pro field! Loved following it online. Men's race could have been so different if Kienle hadn't popped a tub... or if he'd been carrying a spare . The women's race was a proper slug-fest and I'm chuffed that the girl from Lincolnshire who grew up in Auz and lives in America won it for Wales. The Best Tri Nation In The World? Cave, Jenkins.... Seren?

The only bummer for me is that none of the bookies would let me put my grubby £20 on Pete Jacobs to win. Perhaps I could consider suing him ?

I was 226 (out of 235 finishers) in my age group at IM Wales

Interestingly I was 22nd out of 46 in the MVet agegroup at Concorde Sprint Tri 2 weeks earlier.

Clearly shorter is a lot easier

Well Done Rosey!

So is Cave British, am i right that she is the 70.3 champ as well?...impressive stuff, chance of a mention on SPOTY...none.

Cave was born in the UK. brought up in Oz, came back to the UK, now lives in the US - races under her GB nationality.  and yes - current IM 70.3 champ as well.  she's  one of the unsung GB LD triathetes who's been quietly plugging her way around the tri circuit with varied level of success over the years - she's also won the ITU LD Worlds in the past.  her volume of wins isn't huge but she has the top 3 in the bag and quite a number of podium spots.  well deserved win

Cheers FB

She also won the ITU World Champs 10 years ago (the regular Oly distance one, she also won the LD champs a few years later as FB says).  So a world champion at 4 different distances over the years, which isn't too shabby.

15/10/2012 at 17:05

I read on twitter today (so it must be true) that she has made significant wins at all distances of triathlon.  So, she can do it hard and fast AND long and slow(er).

Have you cheered up yet?

15/10/2012 at 17:25

I doubt it. If Meldy smiled, her face would crack.

KK - do us all a favour? Go away. We're here to watch Kona and support Rosey, not put up with your shit. If you have nothing useful to say, say nothing at all.

Go pirate!

Fuck off.

Dont you just love the friendly banter on here?

Well at least I can spell the word properly!

I'm glad Rosey did well, I support everyone in their racing and always have.

I just stand up against the other stuff and quite rightly so. He knows why I'm pissed off at him. Ditto other people.
