it's not the 100's we had on the list last year - but still a sizeable crowd

i think that this is definitely going to piush henley for the rights to be the pirate championship race......i may be wrong but i think that its usually whichever is the biggest ship sailing and we certainly look like we have a sizable ship sailing

and i liked the pub...........and the sunshine makes me want to train............but being sensible and building back up slowly..............

beer training is going well........

my pal might be up for the full whack next year, so that might be one to increase the numbers . i guess this year was pretty unusual having so many folk at one IM; next year will probably be a lot more split, but Outlaw has such a good rep, it is bound to be popular

Personally im torn which should be the pirate championship and how it should be chosed.

My thoughts:

Historically its a nominated race and the ship gets behind that race, that doesnt seem to be happening this year with Henley, though that remains to be seen.

My preferernce for the pirate championship was always Lanza as I felt it was a strong contender, being a big European Ironman which had not yet hosted the pirate championship.

Outlaw was the pirate championship this year so for that reason along I dont think it should be next year, also, Outlaw could easily be a popular race year after year, does that mean PSOF championship Outlaw every year?

I dont think it should just be about numbers,for me, the pirate championship is about moving the pirates forward, seeing new places, savouring the big ticket experience of Ironman events accross Europe and the cammoradorie that creates.

If you ask those that have been to Eurpoean Pirate championships and Outlaw im sure most will draw a line of distinction between what its like to all rock up at Outlaw for 2 days, spread accross various hotels, campsite etc etc vs visiting travelling further afield and all the excitement a foreign city and Ironman.

I think it would be a wrong move to have Outlaw as the PSOF championship next year, I also think we should make a pitch for getting out of the UK again in 2014,

TG - yep, I would be up for some long rides... might find there are a few others on the list from our neck of the woods too. 

Does anyone have a garmin trace of the outlaw bike route - how hilly is it?  Thinking of designing some training routes.

PSC, Outlaw is not at all hilly, there is one bump (Oxton Bank) which you go up once, the rest is an out and out TT course.

Oxton Bank = 'Was that it'

It really is just a pimple





..... in the wind 

25/07/2012 at 21:11
I didn't know I had been up Oxton Bank until I got to feed station 2 and realised it was the little rise just after feed 1

The wind was more of an issue than that was .. its really not bad in the slightest

25/07/2012 at 21:14
Honest I didn't drop off the big ring for Oxton. The last 10 miles when it started to rain and the wind got up were horrid

I'm with Barlo on the Pirate Championship question ...
25/07/2012 at 21:23
I'm with him on the question. Sadly I won't be in Lanza

Neither will I ... So the championship should be in IMCH I may have a chance with just a couple of us

Red Dog I think you need to email someone at RW these days ...the best way to attract their attention is probably to set fire to RW towers whilst stripping off and singing 'The HIlls are alive'

The lesser option which might take a bit longer to get noticed is just to report this thread to a moderator (there is a button below) and explain that you would like a piratey sign please

LOL... thanks, I hadn't realised that it would be a flatter than a flat thing (compared to some).  Liking it already.  I am sure the Jet Stream will be better behaved next year and there will be a light cooling breeze only.

Barley, sorry mate I cross posted with you as I've been off noshing on a BBQ so didn't see your thoughts until just now....  My thoughts on the European races are yes, agree with you totally about the big ticket experience - I certainly loved Zurich and Copenhagen (although missed the PSOF support at the latter).  I can also vouch for the "challenge" experience versus the "Ironman" experience. The Challenge family put on a hell of good race which bodes very well for Henley - but, frankly, for me at least it's down to money.  I haven't done a tri this year as I can't afford to - and next year I am looking for the best value which I reckon is going to be outlaw.  It is a bloody well organised race and £100 cheaper to enter than Henley, and more still in comparison to an M. branded race.  The fact that both Henley and Outlaw are going to be well supported and have large teams racing is a real bonus - dare I postulate that there could be a small fleet of Pirate Ships now as there really are quite a few of us racing in yellow n black and we can therefore support 2 or 3 big turnouts at full distance per year.  Christ, can you imagine if we all went to the same place/race... that would be about 350 peeps racing and 1000+ supporters.  TriTalkers would piss their pants in panic at the total domination we could offer........................  LETS DO IT!

PSC, I've got it on Garmin 800 no idea how to get it freely available though. 110.87 miles, 2457 feet elevation, gladly post it up if someone knows how.

Hang on, I've had a go at saving as a course. Log on and type in Outlaw 2012 Pit Stop Crew 

See if it works. Anyone else for that matter
