Guys, just heard the news from my family in NZ - I am so, so, gutted for you
I did the race in 2010 (I was the one whose house burnt down a week before I left!), and I know all too well the hard work and cost that goes into getting there - I'm so sorry you won't get a chance to complete it. Sending hugs.
I'm upset for you all, what a nightmare. Hope you do at least get to race something after all the training, and the money and time in getting there. Stay safe guys - there'll always be another race day.
Well there's no way I'd ride a bike out there at the moment. Swim is rouh, but actually the wind direction is meaning that the swell / waves aren't too bad - simmilar to Thursday at the moment. But standing is tricky, so forget riding in this, especially up the hill on the plains. Even worse now they've done the logging and left the road more exposed than previous years.
I'm tempted to ask on Slowtwitch, but does anyone know what tyres have the lowest CRR for racing in snow.....
That bit of the forecast wasn't what I wanted to see....
Sorry to hear this guys, you must be so disappointed!
Good luck for the half. Race well.
Done. Lets see if anyone bites.
Hey, after this weekend surely I'm allowed a little bit of fun...
Will the 70.3 still be put up on IM dead?
