B - Hopefully will be my second finish, first was Challenge Henley in 2013.
Training seems to be getting back to where it should be after 6 weeks of in cconsistency. Still stuck doing all my biking on the turbo as my thumb hasn't healed enough to use the brakes yet. Backing the pool to but having not swum for 5 weeks means I'm having to take it easy and manage very stiff, tight and sometime painful shoulders.
Raf - My brother in law has promised to weld up some stabilisers before we go to Austria in the mean time I'm sticking to the turbo. At some point i will have to get back on a "big boys bike" and ride on the road again.
Sorry to bring this thread back up to the top but after my "off" a couple of weeks ago the man at the bike shop suggested my tyres looked a bit "shiney" and may need to be replaced. Do tyres get a bit shiney even if they aren't down to the wear indicators?
Assuming I need new tyres I'll take the advice here and from others that GP4000s (II) are the way forward. 2 questions remain, 23vs25 and latex vs butyl innertubes. Are these technical questions for those at the pointiest end of the field or should I be considering these options. I'm aiming for a 6hrs IM bike leg, nearly 40yo male 12st if any of that matters?
