Challenge Barcelona 2014

Posted: 16/04/2014 at 20:19

anyone know how to change the name of a thread???

I suspect the entries will take a little time to fill.  Challenge Barcelona did not fill so I suspect IM Barcelona will take a little time - it will sell out next year though...

I have seen nothing from anyone on transfer but I assume its automatic and I'll hear in the next week or so.

I paid via bank transfer and have heard nothing from challenge barcelona about confirmation, but I suspect they have had other things on their mind in the last month - like launching a new web site, new entry site etc etc etc 

fingers crossed as I have flights and a hotel

calf is healing up so back on the bike for the weekend....   weather is looking nice  - that can't be right, its easter!

The problem with wales is the number of gear changes needed, ie tight corners at the bottom of hills etc etc etc.

At the time I thought a road bike + clipsons is the way to go, but now i've been riding a tri bike exclusively over summer for a few years I would just use the tri bike automatically.....  once you are at ease on it it is just faster.....

Gear ratios?

i have a sram wifli climbing gearset on the rear of my TT bike, and a full fat chainset on the front..... looks silly but means i can spin up stuff.   its slightly lower gear than a compact / stnd rear casette.  

maybe a bit cheaper too....

Me and Shuffles are in

Her first IM distance race, and no way was I gonna sit around an support for 14-15 hrs...

Instead I'll race then support the last 3

Nice late season target, (flatter than Wales) to stop you getting board after Nice?  Entries are easy, although payment process was fun
