I know that me and Rosey are doing it; anyone else?

Ideas on good places to stay?

Melli, there is already another thread for roth 08

We stayed in Nuremberg city this year. As we were going to be there a few days either side of the race we didn't fancy being stuck out in the middle of nowhere. It was a 25 min tram ride away from the expo/start/finish area. Couldn't recommend our hotel though (Meridien Grand). Paid a fortune for it but it is very run down. Good brekkie though :-)

lol. good luck.

did you listen to the IM talk podcasts from Roth? might be useful. they're dope testing the age groupers too. can only imagine they'll end up catching people who've had one too many coffees.

I thought caffeine had been taken off the WADA list? I read somewhere that the new policy in all IM corp races was to test 4 of the first 10 male and female finishers and every age group winner?

it could well have been smiley. my thought was that testing a bunch of part timers will just catch out those who don't know the list of banned stuff like the back of their hand.

That'll be plummie, he'll finally finish one of these things and end up dope tested.... What on earth are we going to come up with lower than a tripe talker as a rank?

It's a difficult one, maybe Journalist or Computer Programmer.

old journos never die, they just sell out and find better paid jobs and spend years regretting it and dreaming of writing novels and end up writing books about mental illness or management issues but sometimes get to do a bit of freelance on things that interest them and then get even more grumpy about the job they've ended up in. You see.

14/07/2007 at 11:41
Don't worry mellifera it kind of went off topic anyway
14/07/2007 at 11:44
see, i could almost be tempted by roth, except for the fact that i hate marmite.
