Pirate autumn bimble?! 3 Molehills, Box Hill, Dorking, 25 November

Posted: Yesterday at 09:40

ahh, I wasn't donning pirate colours at Denbies 10, I didn't spot you I'm afraid. Very good race, a sprint finish to get 5th place nearly killed me down that hill!

I reckon you will smash IMW!

How's the training going all? Happy to beat a 400m pb in the pool this morning (6:01) which is a shock for this time in the year but am actually enjoying swimming a couple of times a week at the minute with little pressure. Am also doing quite a few running events for fun (inc. trail and XC)... though other than commuting I've rarely been on the bike!

Completely not what I planned as my main aim was to get much stronger on a bike over the winter!

Out of interest, if the legacy and lottery places did not exist, would those who talk about wishing they could race in Kona still do so? 

Compare with the Olympics, for example. Certainly the barriers to entry are higher in the Olympics than Kona, but I think that the existence of those barriers is sufficient to stifle the desire of those who just don't want it bad enough.

Personally, I would love to race in Kona. But by qualification only. I would never apply for a lottery or legacy place. And I don't know how far 'down' I'd be willing to accept a roll-down slot. I frame the experience as something I'd earn. 


It's a world championships... at least it is supposed to be. How can a sport's world championship be taken seriously when Joe Bloggs can turn up on the day. I understand the legacy and lottery, and this is no way aimed at individuals, but there is not an ounce of me that would want to try and 'win' a place at a sport's world championships.

I just wrote a long rant.


Then I deleted it.



If somebody wants to paid for something then who am I to judge. I wish I was making a living out of telling people the things that I know about a sport I enjoy

After the disaster that was last years, is there the demand for one this year?


I take offence to that.

As yours was marketed more as being you and GB at the pub?

Jeeez.... what more do you want
