Thanks guys.

Thing is that I can afford it (just!) That's fine. But he might not be able to, and I can't subsidise him. So I'm going to spend a lot of time training, which he does totally support, but I don't want to also end up going on my only holiday of the year without him (a real risk).

Basically if I do Outlaw I can still afford another holiday with the OH. I don't want to miss out on that next year. After triathlon he's definitely the most important thing in my life

Thanks 

Without meaning to be soppy he is a brilliant support whilst having zero interest in competing in triathlons.

Oh and if I go to Outlaw - my mum gets to come! She won't leave the dog and he's too old for a Nice trip. She used to run marathons and enjoys watching me do triathlons. She's always rather smug that her PBs (set in her 40s/50s) are better than mine in my 20s.

going to be watching channel 4 tomorrow and looking to see how tough the bike leg is, will probalbly get a better idea by asking on here and in person though.

I looked for results from last year and came upon a table of median times for all the age groups. As is the case with these things the times were fairly similar across the board from pro's to my aged groupers. Unable to find where the people at the blunt end of the field came and how main miss the cut, anyway Outlaw first then maybe plan a bit for next year

The coverage makes it look a great race seems like even most of the pros were on road bikes so I reckon a bit of a mix of road bike 101/50 race wheels shortly clip on tri bars and a decent bail out gear will be my choice I think I would loose a lot of time on the climb and descent on my TT bike what do those that have done it think?

What's the plan around hotels? is there a pirate place for the weekend? Does it have a bar?

GB - have a look here.

And rather surprised you needed to ask about the bar!!!

Oh dear... the old tt/roadie question  I can see this being an expensive race after buying a tt last year and now wanting a new roadie... this just gives an excuse to spend another 2k!!!

( i have used my tt in one race and probably about 15 training rides!!)
