Not sure about Mallorca - but Wimbleball and IM Wales are jolly hilly - so an out and out tri bike might not be as advantageous as on other courses ?
I'd probably go for a cross bike - they're so versatile you can do anything on them. I've used mine for an IM race anyway.
PX can do you a TT bike for under a grand if you're really serious about it.
Then about ??500 for a powertap and ??50 for a wheel cover for racing on it ?
I've got a powertap but never really used it on the road to its full potential. My best training sessions are on the turbo where I could have used virtual power if my turbo had been up to it.
The powermeter might help you gauge your efforts on the long races though ?
I think training trumps anything else really.
