My colours may be on two masts but not the same two.... i'm seeking support in starting a newbie splinter group wannbe attack on the "go wash your mouth out" IM UK... and the really "hard" newbies (i.e. the remaining stoopid ones who didn't die after episode one) can then attend the very posh Henley gathering afterwards

I thought we'd sorted this AGES ago..... Lanza for the "Pirate Worlds" and Henley for the National Champs? It will be awesome to participate in a Marquee event like Lanza as part of a big crew, and there has been a swell of enthusiasm from a lot of folks to do Lanza for a while. The fact that I can't make it there myself because it's not in school hoildays... my loss. Just means that somebody else can win .

Henley inspires me about as much as the three stooges who currently run the main UK political parties! But it's cheap and easy for the southern mob and... erm... other things that I haven't yet sussed.

The Pirate thing has become too popular to please all of the people all of the time. Worthy of a celebration in itself.

So I think I'll do Vichy next year, or possibly Sweden.

I've been to Bolton, in fact my family come from there. Gastank, I'd say that you shouldn't hold up your hopes. It's famous for the being the cradle of the Industrial Revolution in Victorian times, years of neglect, and the upsurgent home of the BNP. (Or is that Oldham?).

The only two things I remember about Henley are that they don't do Tri when it's peak season, because they're rowing. And the race reports from the tri had all the racers hanging onto the pontoon trying not to get swept down the Thames at the start.

But what do I know?

Personally, I'm eyeballing IM Wales. 2013.

Gastank - all I can say about Bolton is the Landlord form local is from there, he raves about it, he's a huge Bolton football fan, he was the first person ever to get married at the Reebok (football stadium) - he wouldn't have a word said about the place, thinks its great, the dog's bolloxs.......but he lives down here, five miles from Henley....speaks for itself really

There's another sign! I found a holiday book in our house, open at Lanzarote.

Can I officially retire before I start?

I will be spectating at Vichy. Will help with a feed station as long as du vin and du pain is okay.

i fancy Lanza and Henley -
Are we having a new pirate award for turning up to both championship races. If so, how about the longest joint time gets the aard

I am thinking Lanza if I do Ironman next year. The problem (for me) with a late summer race is that you lose all of the social opportunities that come with summer because of training.

That said though I like the idea of Lanza and Henley , so do my credit card suppliers!

Just had another look at the race information for Challenge Vichy. The bike profile is fantastic - looks like a sharp climb followed by 90k rolling downhill, and repeat! And it's the weekend of my 40th birthday.......and it's in France.
