It really was horrid. I nearly bailed a few times. I got a puncture in a tubular with about 17 miles to go, i managed to get in to the last checkpoint at the pub, but the mechanic had gone  forty five effing minutes for me to stick a new tub on, really took a lot to get back out there then. Couldn't fault the landlord though, top bloke letting me change it in the pub

Tubs arghhhhh, I've given up on those things, I was riding tubeless wheels, touch wood not a single flat all winter on these beauties. There said it

Well done everyone it was so tough and I thought at times I wouldn't make it. SaintB sorry to hear about your puncture that must have been almost just after I saw you. B Bee you did the right thing if your temperature was dropping and 70 miles on that isn't for faint heart. Well done everyone else. 

I've written a blog post about the event it if anyone is interested

Shame I didn't meet the other pirates but wasn't a day for anyone hanging about afterwards was it?. 

Well done everyone super efforts all round. 

Maybe next year???

Blog was a good read Unchartered, and hopefully good prep for Ironman, both physically and mentally,

 

9:00:49 for me, and continuous effort, 8:42 of moving time

MTRlumphant You didn't stop long at the Feed Stations well done. I could have had kip compared to that and think I nearly did at 82 miles in. Well done 9hrs on that course is a big achievement. Just got to see how it compares to this IM Wales Bike course now.

iM Wales course is not as tough, IMO, but, you do have to do a bit of running after it. why aren't you doing the bike on the LCW? Be ideal. I am. Where have you got digs to for the LCW? I'm at Kiln Park ( a neccasary evil I'm afraid, two kids in tow).

IM Wales doesn't feel as tough, but Saturday was made harder by the weather

SaintB - I'm at Kiln Park for the event as my daughter is coming along but being looked after by her cousin parents think she will do IronKids on the Saturday. I would love to do LCW but can only make the Swim as have kids that weekend I'm sure I will managed to meet up with a few pirates for a blast soon.
