I did it last year, a few comments:

1. Getting there is a bit of a ballache, think I had a long transfer from Bologna. But once there it's a doddle - everything in one place, big marquee on the bea ...

Camelbak down the front, plus an aero bottle on the bike. On a hot day an extra bottle stashed.

However many 100's will have a manned aid station - if you bring a couple of bottles labelled with yo ...

I stayed and got the 4th medal.

Relaxed and ate pizza/ice cream for a couple of hours - neither on my feet or in the sun, medals were handed out at 4:30.

We all sounded like jailers with the 4 m ...

Sorry just catching up after a week's holiday.

Nice ride in the National 100 Jeff, tough day wasn;t it. I started off no 119, Keiron Davies at 120 blew past after about 7 minutes Rolling Eyes and I found ...

Not sure the results are a real reflection on performance (sorry!) as there may be a fair few who copped the penalty hour on the bike.

Haven't even checked my result, but with that hour I'd be well ...

Sounds a bit drastic after a couple of incidents in a race. Incident free, would you enjoy it?

I've quit a few times 'in the heat of the moment' - getting bashed to f%&k in the IM Wales mass st ...

Yes, my 4th IM Wales in September. 2012, 2014 and 2015 the others. Love/hate the race!

I was allocated Wave 3, the final wave of the 112 mile sportive. I think the long course athletes were spread across the 3 waves, along with the 'sportive only' riders.

I wanted to 'race' it solo, ...

Sorry missed the get together request...

Had a mighty fine weekend.

Swim 1:08. One of the most enjoyable swims ever. As it was far less bouncy than any of my IM Wales swims I could really apprec ...

Looking forward to it, although not sure the long term fine weather forecast will make it proper prep for September.

Anyone else?

Good work chaps Smile

National 100 for me Sunday. I'm off no. 119, with Keiron Davies at 120 - so after about 10 minutes I'll be last man out on the road.... Embarassed.... probably get back to HQ after ...

Actually, this year I'd be competing in M40-44, but hypothetically if Q'd would race next year in M45 as I age-up. Interestingly, M45 didn't look too stacked in Staffs.
How does that work for IM? Do ...

Edinburgh was the first race globally I think with Nice slots on the line. As you say, it was a rare race where they made it a dual qualifier.

Good work Jeff. I'd like to qualify for Nice if I coul ...

Well done Sir!

The 70.3 WC's are actually a great experience now - a bit low key when I first did in (Las Vegas, 2013), but last year in Chattanooga it was really special. Think Kona is on the shel ...
