Yeah, i bought the hoodie. Nice quality, if a little pricey at 38 quid. 11 bottles, bit funny. I messed up the last drinks station and didn't finish with any Outlaw bottles, so at the following days prize giving, i asked someone loading up the bottles into a van, if i could have one as i had messed things up and didn't finish with any. They practically begged me to take a whole box (100 ish). I settled for a dozen (the wife gave one away (she doesn't quite get the whole, you have to earn it thing)).

Did anyone else receive a Outlaw beach towel in the post today. Totally free and unexpected. It is really nice.  So in terms of mementoes from the day, i have a medal, a finishers t-shirt, 11 water bottles, a hoodie, swim cap and now a towel!

Wheel upgrade advice

Posted: 14/09/2014 at 21:01

How much of a difference do decent wheels actually make. I mean in seconds/minutes over say 25miles or 112miles. People say things like "they spin up so quick" or "they accelerate so fast", but i've upgraded kit before and while i'm happy with my new bling, i'm no faster, that i can tell. If there is a difference, it is marginal and not worth spending mega money on. Better to build your engine IMO.

Olympic distance tri on Sunday for me. Oh and new bike arrived today. Test ride tomorrow to see whether to use current bike(alloy, tiagra) or new one (carbon, 11sp ultegra, better rims). 

Hydration on long rides

Posted: 16/05/2014 at 21:38

I'm doing 85 miles tomorrow morning and am taking 2 x 800ml bottles, plus food and expect to not NEED any more than a 500ml bottle of water extra from a shop somewhere. Are you sure you NEED that much fluid. If you start fully hydrated, you shouldn't need anything for 60-75 mins. You could wear a hydration waist belt with 2 x 500ml bottles.
