I can run OK in my bi shorts 



I quite like the ZeroD kit; quite nice. Bricks were typically done in my cheap More Mile tri shorts though.

Sounds like a cracking weekend all round. Good training and good racing

115km on the bike in the Wiltshire downs. Lumpy. Re-energised by a big dirty burger in the local Beefeater once home.

Now it's my turn to post on the I saw RedStripe thread. We saw each other at the feed station on the Wiggle Wiltshire downs sportive.

Including riding there and back, 115km in the bag. Longest and furthest since Outlaw 2012.  Zzzzz

D'oh! Sure you could do a club TT with disc brakes.

It's been happening more and more, only thing disks still aren't allowed in UCI sanctioned events, so you couldn't do a local TT with them

Rear disk? You can use those at TTs. 

I have Shimano on my road bike and SRAM on the TT. I hired a road bike in the US with SRAM and it did the job. SRAM gear changes to me seem more positive. YMMV.

Phil - a good few years since I did A level maths but even I can see the flaw in your logic.

That's fighting talk: are you sure you want to take me on? A level maths is better than none but is barely the first rung on the ladder from where I am standing.

Dachs, good to see you are doing the 9.344 extra metres for the mile.

Phil has an O-level. None of these new-fangled qualifications.

I spectacularly failed A-level maths. It was either one of the hardest subject I'd ever studied, or I was not ready for it. Certainly once I'd made it on to the degree course I did, I found the maths pretty straight forwards. I'd love to retake it one day.

Dachs, did you miss out the 344mm per lap? Shocker.

Parkrun at WP this morning, though wife was marshalling so ran with some vigor. Not hard but not easy. No achilles probs either this time.

That's pretty healthy Matt. 20x400 sounds a lot, but I suppose it's only 4 more than 16.

Hence MSEN is 18-39, MV40 is 40-49, MV50 is 50-59 etc. Age taken as at 31st December that year. Make the groups exclusive.


There is too much inclusion these days and people getting medals for just turning up. It's like a fluffy left-wing school sports day.

There is a really nice curry house at the end of Greyfriars Rd/Park Place.

Matt, if it is patella tracking you can get neoprene straps to keep it in place.

F-off today. Thank feck, this week has been trying!
