Ironman Copenhagen or Maastricht? Any feedback or preferences?

Posted: Yesterday at 17:53


fantastic city and a great race especially as a first IM

the swim is in a sheltered sea estuary it's a staggered start so makes for a nice relaxed swim no biff you swim under a number of bridges with supporters cheering you on from above 

the bike is 2 laps the outward leg is flat along the coastline and rocket ship fast the return is more rural very scenic with some hills but nothing extreme. Support is good especially on the climbs coming back into town. The roads are in fantastic condition

the run is 4 laps of the city centre pretty much flat the support is massive all around the course and the city is amazing

all in all a fantastic race which would be a great venue for a Pirate sailing

one word of caution Denmark is not cheap!!

No IM for me next year but if it's UK based I will be along to support ???? You might want to consider Copenhagen for a flat n fast one I will let you know how good it is in a couple of weeks????

I can personally vouch for Bunny Poo she's mad as a box of frogs and a keen piss head so will fit right in 

errr sorry BP but I neglected to mention Barlos and the initiation it's not all fun and games for a pirate gel you know sometimes you just have to bite down hard on the cutlass and take one for the team
