For 2015 the list is pretty good to be honest.

Lanzarote IM


UK 70.3

Copenhagen IM (I liked the sound of it now just need to enter the damn thing).  Roth would be excellent but sold out far too quickly this year.

Mouse - That is an excellent steer cheers for that one, the noise should be ok to be honest I am a pretty heavy sleeper but will bear it in mind.  The 10 mins from finish line sounds very appealing and it looks good.

Stanners - sounds like a plan is in the hatching there then. 

I have a horrible feeling this event will be pretty quick to sell out (not quite Roth quick mind), just hope I can get a place now.  Am going to be away when it opens so have to hope the internet is still up and running.

Just out of interest Mouse, where did you stay when you did the race?

Fair point, I felt the same way about Outlaw and UK 70.3 the marshalls were excellent and everything was very clear and done for maximum simplicity as they knew what they were working with.  I hope that now that it is part of the WTC piece those bits have improved, it sounds a little snobby but a really good course can be ruined by those little things which is why I would not go back to Henley.

Mouse that is a brilliant race report thank you ever so much, aside from the split transition (what is it with Challenge events and that concept?) I am a little unimpressed with Challenge after my experience at Henley last year but most of the issues you highlighted are the sort of thing that WTC and the Ironman brand tend to be very very good at addressing.  The course sounds good though and I think it might be a really good European race for 2015. 

Would you do it again?

I am looking at doing Ironman Copenhagen in 2015, is anyone doing it this year and if you have any feedback (good or bad) it would be really useful.  Also as I know you guys all like lists on this site, it might as well act as the 2015 Ironman Copenhagen list:


How are your pre race nerves?

Must abmit I am introverted and maybe a little too serious before an event, also I dont feel competative standing on the start line.  Then as soon as I am under way generally start to warm to the idea and get my race face on and enjoy the day.  I think thats just the highs and lows of racing isnt it?

What would it take for the Pirates to end?

I think secretly we like Iron distance tri because it is tough and little outside of the mainstream, when it is suppased or becomes more of a mass appeal then I am sure people will move on and querky groups like this will be in the vanguard of a new sport.

Geeky Bike component question.

Shimano 105 or SRAM Rival groupset - discuss.
