Just back from pasta party / race briefing.
Hmm, additional race weather briefing for athletes at 4pm tomorrow with updated contingency plans. "If the weather is as bad as the forecst then we will be running a duathlon"
Winds gusting to 45knots (51mph/80kph) on the bike. Temperature dropping to single digits.
Can't wait, this is going to be one epic finishers medal!
A duathlon? Of the run-bike-run variety, or the IM China 'drop the swim and start everyone on the bike at intervals' version? It'll be a shame either way, I hope the swim goes ahead safely.
Mind you, it's your own fault HC, after you sat on a sunny beach instead of freezing at the Ballbuster last November. It sounds like we'll be warmer at the spring version on saturday than you'll be
gosh sounds a nightmare, hope you get some kind of a race.
cant believe it was 3 years ago we were there and will be back there in 2 weeks, enjoy your stay whatever happens, be safe
Whatever the distance, whatever the format, race well.
You must want to puke. How frustrating.i feel bad for the competitors MUCH more than i do for the organisers. Sorry if that sees me shot down in flames, but i really feel for you.
all that training and traveling to far flug corners of the world and we still are at the mercy of mother nature.
gutted for you all
