Is it to early to start the debate?
I have yet to do my first Ironman, but if Outlaw doesn't finish me off, I like the look of thatBloody Pirates, sneaky buggers never mentioned that this is addictive.
Same here NR - I like the look of that as my first Ironman abroad.
If Henley doesn't kill me, of course.

La la la, I'm not listening to you
I think some people have been thinking about doing Austria for the 10 year anniversary of the innaugural pirate race at said venue.
Yep, what Mouse says
Shouldn't we be basing this on important criteria .... like where does the best beer??
the beer in Austria in 2007 wasn't bad....from what I remember of it.....
as Austria sells out damn quick - like 10mins - then there needs to be some fast finger action to get lots in!!
I thought it was 2015 for the anniversary do ?Barlos was on about Sweden for next year but I think that price might be a bit prohibitive
It wont be that much different with the Pirates ....
No R-Max, Austria isn't flat. Nor is Switzerland.
I fancy Challenge Almere as it has a half as well and I can't do the full IM any more because of my titanium hip. Time I joined another Pirate trip. Don't be fooled into thinking it's flat and easy though, friends who have been there say it can be pretty tough biking in the wind there.
Ironman is tough, its never a walk in the park (well ... when I say walk in the park ...)A flat course provides equal problems as it solves, that said there are relatively quick courses out there and after this year I think they will definitely be on my radar!!
