Challenge Weymouth 2015

Posted: 20/04/2015 at 10:10

I'm also entered for Weymouth but still not 100% sure if I'm actually going to make the start line. (long story) I'm waiting to see how I feel after Outlaw!

Vit 2016 - Pirate takeover?

Posted: 06/04/2015 at 21:26

I'd go for Vit but I'm biased as it's fairly local to camp site though!

cougie the Ripple was a tad tough at dambuster duathlon, that's to the lovely breeze we had,  I'm pleased it was only once round!

I used a hard shell bike box, the bike has survived (pipe insulation and copious amounts of bubble wrap) but the box has got damaged a few times. This year for an easier life,  I'm sending my bike to Rimini fully assembled over land with Tri-camp. (Pain in the ass assembling and packing the bike) one less thing to worry about. FYI race force were brilliant in Majorca last year (we didn't use them but they were happy for us to get our bikes checked out ad hoc if we needed to) there support for the Brits, whilst we were training was outstanding.

I did challenge Pageura half(Majorca) last October, the cycling in Majorca is cracking, a bit of everything. The run was quite hilly, which was tough on tired legs....oh and bonus, the weather was gorgeous! I'm assuming the ironman will be just as good! (Could see me joining you, I was going to enter ironman Wales!)

Ironman Holland could also be a good race, I used to live quite close to that area! Cheap to get to and loads of campsites ????

Outlaw 2015

Typical.....I've manage to get a virus. Fortunately, yesterday I manage to get a run/bike/run brick in (duathlon in a couple of weeks) and also got recovery run in last night before it took hold. Fingers crossed the virus will be short lived!

happy training everyone!

I can get matched funding from my work for charity fund raising (up to a certain can Cake). Let me get Christmas over with and I will try and sort out an event of some type.

What is your favourite tri length? No particular reason...

I like all the distances, each has its merits, each has its downers but all give me that 'I've worked my butt off' feeling

Challenge Paguera Majorca 70.3

Posted: 24/10/2014 at 20:52

I've just got back from Majorca having raced this event. For future reference, if your looking for an end of season race in the sun, then this is a fantastic option. The weather was great, the town was welcoming, it was great for families/support crew too. It's a sea swim, with a relatively bumpy technical cycle and an undulating run. Easy to get to from the u.k. Well worth a bash at!
