Same organisers as the IM event, just jumped to the Challenge brand. Speaking to people who'd done the IM event, T2 is in a different location (about 2k from finish area) so bike collection before 1130pm post race can be 'fun'. Organisation was good, support was good, location was great, medical aid was excellent as was the ambulance ride with lights and sirens. Ah, the memories.
What-ho Pirate-land, can't believe I was last here on 27/08/2013; my how time flies!
Anyhow, off to Germany this weekend for a jaunt around the Bavarian landscape and the inaugural Challenge Regensburg iron distance race. If anyone's in the region and wants to say hi, 'Hi!'
My race strategy is to start at 6:45am and finish sometime before the 16hr cut-off, and be home in time for tea and cakes (or probably more like beer and wurst), collect medal and t-shirt. Anything else is a bonus.
