Commonwealth triathlon- advertising

So the Brownlee brothers are riding unbranded Boardman bikes with highly branded Zipp wheels.  I'm struggling to think whether they're using their regular ITU bikes (where their kit carries Boardman logos) or whether there is an official 'Team England Commonwealth' bike supplier which happens not to be Mr B.

It's made it to the highlights, although I still can't quite see what caused it to happen

I've just re-read the inventory list of what's in the van and there's no first aid kit.  Do we want/need one or could the presence of one mean we are holding ourselves out as having first aid skills that we may not have.  Or am I just massively overthinking the problem?

RS- yes wetties are optional.

Having read the marshal feed station notes I see that there they are not providing any pumps.  I'll try to remember to sling a track pump in the boot, but a backup might be useful.

I'm arriving on Friday and will want a bite to eat so I'll probably be found in one of the two on both the Friday and Saturday.  I've not thought through Sunday nutrition post bacon sarnie at all yet.

On the way back in - FeFe, Bristolsparks and justplod on, you will be redistributed either into my car with me, the van with Mr Stoat or as an additional passenger to MC, Rocco or LilSis depending on size of cars.  I hope that's ok with everyone?  

FeFe - that means we no longer need you to drive.


Mouse- read and noted thanks

Cake, apologies for the beer rant which follows.  I've become more averse to John Smiths as the years have progressed, principally because it's a fairly bombproof beer and so will often be the one bitter available on tap in teeny tiny bars (I think the bar at the Vitruvian used to stock it or I may possibly be conflating several memories here).  I'll drink IPA but it's not on my 'go to' list of beers of choice.  Given the choice between a pub with beers I know and a local brewery pub with beers I haven't tried before I know which way my feet will carry me.  That said I don't think I'd be so anti-social as to sit in the Poppy on my Jack Jones if everyone was Lady Bay-ing it.

http://www.castlerockbrewery.co.uk/pubs/poppy-pint/ is also about the same distance (and direction) and has nicer beer.  

Swim- does look like wetties are optional if you read the page:


Tyre pressure

Out of interest, how many here run their tyres at different pressures?  I normally run the front at (an indicated) 95psi and the rear at 100.

UKK- the feed station is on the bike route, but after it's closed down we normally decamp to the finish line of the run course to drink beer and cheer on the finishers.

I don't seem to have been allocated any passengers to take to the feed station.  If we have sufficient cars already I'll happily turn into a passenger, but in the interim I'll sit quietly here and wait for an organiser to arrive.
