Hey, not volunteering for the station as I am racing (I use the term loosely) but would like to just say thank you to everyone who does give their time well in advance, it is greatly appreciated.

Bug knocked me for 6 last week and now my local pool is closed...  The bike work seems to be paying off so it is not all bad news.

Feeling nervous about this one, I think because I am a bit race rusty this early in the season.

I will also be going this year, not sure if I will be in the best condition for it but this one will be about the finish not about the time so should be ok.  Have people booked flights and accomodation yet?  See you there.

What is your favourite tri length? No particular reason...

Honestly its half ironman/middle distance long enough to make up for my rubbish swim and still short enough to recover in short time not being ruined for days after.  Oh and they are cheaper!

Recommend a good 45/50 mile Ultra for April / May 2015

Country to Capital was pretty good, takes place in January and sits at 45 miles if memory serves.  Enjoyable race.

Hey I did this a couple of times it's a good course and a nice atmosphere. Swim - very shallow in places and there is a long run into T1.  Bike - no dramas it's a nice ride, mostly on good roads, one section of road just seemed to absorb energy (no it was not a hill).  Run - it's not a flat course by any stretch but feed stations are well located, be mindful when I did it last a couple of years back the run was definitely over 13.1 more towards 14, loads of watches beeping in middle of the track and confused looking people.  It's a good race and I would do it again, enjoy.  Awesome race t shirt that said something like happy beavers worth it just for that!

Thats a real shame I did that event last year and was impressed it was a nice course and had a good feel to it.  Good luck with the refund, any idea if they are going to try and run one again in 2015?

Tri Bike or carbon bike for Ironman & rent or buy?

Completely with Millsy on that one, honestly if you have a road bike that is up to the job I would stick on that one.  I probably would invest in tri bars however as personally when I started to move to longer distances I found them really useful and they gave you an alternative position to ride in so you could change the pressure and stature a little bit.

I still ride a road bike, nothing overly expensive that I brought 5 years ago, I have upgraded a few parts as they wore out or broke and did invest in tri bars but have not gone carbon or TT.  There is nothing more satisfying than passing people on bikes that cost more than my car on something simple!!!!!  Good luck mate.

Outlaw or Ironman Bolton??

Coming out in defence of the Outlaw, I really enjoyed the race there last year and it is a fraction of the cost of the IM UK, well organised and with good supporting infrastructure.  Also I found the crowd very supportive and in the last few miles lets be honest I really needed it.
