I thought you'd found a sandbank mid channel !

Annoyed I'm missing out on that race FB, but I suppose I better go to my daughters wedding !

After taking this marathon training seriously this year I'll be glad to get back to Tri next year

i like the saound of the one that FB is talking about.,............on eof the things i liked about IMCH was that they had the shorter tris the day before.meant that the retired and the newbies could share the trip as well..........something for everyone.........more chance of having a bit outing and if its not far over the channel...........

if it gets good feed back could definitely be a contender.......

Its close enought to nearly be the UK

... so the weather could be as shit as the UK

I must say ... although i thought the Outlaw was a nice race .... I like to race mainland europe where there is a better chance for nicer weather.

I especially like racing in Germanic countries: Nice weather, good crowds, well organised and you can drive there

At least its going to be cooking in Lanza in May (at least I hope so).

The last 5-6 ive done have been a mixture of cold, windy, raining, cloudy, 8loody miserable.  I'll take the heat over other weather any time.
