As for inner tubes does that make a/any difference?
not a huge difference but don't be tempted to buy the cheapest as they are usually shit. stick to the main brands for tubes like Michelin, Spesh, Vittoria, Schwalbe, Conti etc and you won't go far wrong
Unfortunatly the Motorhome is really the only option as my old man is doing it as well and he has brought one!! Looks like I will have to keep on trying I'm sure something will come up and if means getting someone to drive us as close as they can the morning of the race we will have to do that.
Thanks again for the advice.
brought or bought?? if bought, welcome to the motorhome world - we've been owners for nigh on 10 years now and they are great for tri (and other sports) as you can be self contained and flexible. and no worrying about what to take - just throw the bloody lot in!
as a thought - are Fischers Fritz in Zurich keeping a waiting list in case of reservation cancellations?? might be worth asking in case you haven't already and if they are, get your name down.
