There was also a guy wearing Oakleys with the headphones built in. I could hear his music playing as I passed him. Tut tut

As for the poor soul who got DQ'd for urinating in public, wrong place wrong time it would appear. Prob about a third of the field were guilty of that at some point. Bad luck!

There's urinating in public.... and urinating in public. Degrees of indecency.

I suppose facing the riders asking them "what do you think of that?" could be perceived as worse than going behind a hedge to urinate!!!

yep.  I'm sure that most people who did go in public did so behind a hedge or  undergrowth of some sort so at least tried to not be seen.

I've DQ'd someone for peeing - rather than walk 20m to the toilets outside the transition area, they peed up against the fence of the site owners - one of whom saw him doing so and reported the matter.  there was no other option.

I've caught a few guys peeing in transition - I usually give a strong verbal warning and delay them going out onto the bike or run.  that's enough to usually stop them doing it again.   getting them to stop mid-flow is usually interesting as well - it can hurt.

I don't think many people would argue with FB if he told them to put their little chap away.

Talking of rules, I still like the fact that Jodie Swallow once had to change her kit as her breasts made the sponsors logo to big.

Didn't know that - that's class.

there's also a rear photo shot of Ms Swallow and the middle part of her name is aptly disappearing into the crack of her arse!!

yeh - he was originally DQ'd for that (rulebook now says you can't have more than 10cm of flesh between the top of the bottoms and bottom of the top) as it's "illegal equipment" but he seems to have won an appeal I guess.   he should have been DQ'd on "fashion from the 90's" grounds....

I caught him up when he was in deep discussion with the motorcycle referee. Staying too far back to draft, I didn't catch anything of the conversation but put 2 and 2 together when I saw the DQ. I was annoyed because I couldn't safely overtake and they were there for 2-3 minutes. Last thing I wanted was pinging for drafting the referee, but not a lot I could do in the circumstances!

The Funkins took a picture of the penalty listing.  There was (originally) also a DQ for insufficient clothing, but I did read (on one of the Outlaw related threads) that this had been reclassified to a time penalty

Edit: x-post with DD

Here's the penalty sheets as of Monday morning (hover over the image and you'll see a magnifying glass where you can see the details)....

Is it wrong of me to shake my head in dissapointment when I see that competitor number 533 was DQ'd for Dangerous Cycling; and then note he's a member of Gloucester Police Tri Club?

Hi, I know this is the Outlaw thread but any pirates going to Ironman UK on Sunday. Just had a sudden desire to pop up there (not too far ) to get a feel for an Ironman and support anyone competing?

Cheers Rio  I'll be sporting pirate gear on Sunday No 1455 and look forward to seeing you.

The atmosphere is great I'm sure you will have a great day.
