You might remember i was in for this race, i roped a mate into it but then i had to pull out due mainly to work commitments but also injury...anyway my mate is still racing so we're heading to tenby for a week tomorrow. Rally looking forward to cheering you all on....if i see any pirates i'll come and say hello. staying on Kiln park for the week ina caravan so i'll see yer in the mash and barrel!!!
so saturday night last week....i've a few mates we are tracking on irontrac doing ironman kalmar sweden....as we are talking a plan hatches that maybe i can make my return (having missed the outlaw in 2012 and wales in 2013 through injury and job problems) to ironman racing in a nice european race.
two people i'm talking to say they fancy it aswell (mrsB and a mate)...so cue monday morning at 10am we are on line.....and by 5 past we are all signed up!!
reports came from the mates that its flat and fast but certainly not easy (how can it be) and i'm really excited about it already!!!
i need a better year though....dont want to miss 3 in a row
hey all....blimey this thread filled up as quick as IMUK did.
congrats to all those in.
really interested to see what the course will be like and will be happy to take people on recce rides during the spring....speculation about the course is rife...with hunters and parbold hill both being mentioned.
my guess is still they will leave it the same...till eccleston and then take it through croston instead...down through rufford and burscough and indeed up parbold hill....which contrary to TIMMYG's comments is not the reason i chose sweden (though it is a lot flatter)
few locals on here now and as i'm gonna be more involved in IM racing this year i'll be happy to answer any questions and will be here often to offer local advice (cause i'm no good at giving racing advice)
i have the fink plan in XL if anybody wants it just send me a PM with your email.
good luck to all at bolton...i think the quick sell out not only shows its a great event now but also (and hopefully) its here to stay!!
