That's an interesting line  ...  so where should it go ... do we test amateurs at 'our' level (or at least at my level which is mainly completer rather than competer) ... if we don't then it just enhances the current increase in full on EPO style doping being undertaken by 'bored businessmen' type , but then if you do, where do you draw the line ... as if it is at professional standards then I am guilty of 'doping'in a race by having a lemsip beforehand. (Phento-something or other is on the banned list and in lemsip). 

So is there a different level of testing for different levels of races ?

Also, if memory serves, wasn't there talk in the last year or so of a lady taking one of the drives in F1 (obviously without the having to park it in the garage bit   )

There is a big push to get women into tri, WTC are giving thousands in grants to US tri clubs to encourage more and more women into tri. Its not right but then again niether are having 50 men pros in Kona but not women.

But is £3 difference (more on other races\days) really going to be the deal breaker to a lady entering or not ? Even a females sense of bargain hunting surely doesn't extend to ...

"Well, I was going to enter the London Tri, but it's £95 so I don't think I will"

"Oh wait, it's only £92 for females ... WOW bargain !!..... I'm IN !!!! "

Just looking through some tri's and I noticed this, and in this modern age of equality etc, can't quite work out how they can justify charging males more than females to enter. Do men eat more on the run, or is it because we (generally) need larger t-shirts at the end ?


How can I train for swimming? outside ?

Austria ticks all the boxes for me to debut at a Champs ... non salty-stingy swim, warm, mid-summer, and non lethal bike course

Agree with decision being made earlier rather than later as really want to attend a Pirate champs, but this year I'd booked in to IM Vichy before Hamburg was decided on. 

Have no preference as to where other than somewhere warm (although not overly keen on a sea swim!). 

As for a UK based DIY full, if there was enough interest, I 'may' have totally free access to a perfect lake, that just so happens to also be right next door to some of the nicest, lumpiest cycling North Wales has to offer. 

What should my pirate name be?
