As part of my cultural integration to Switzerland, I will be taking part and racing in Swiss colours. Any other TriTalkers planning to enter?

Timing is not the best, coming one week after Alpenbrevet ride 274km and 6800m climbing - far from the perfect taper

GB athletes need to qualify - just can't enter. Wink

I've applied to be part of the Technical Officials team but I suspect I won't get on it as I was a TO at the Worlds in Oz last year, and there will be lots of Euro TOs applying.

I got a spot on roll down, but declined. I'm now at a wedding that weekend, and have 70.3 worlds the weekend after which I'd rather do anyway. In excess of 300 entry fee for a standard distance triathlon is just way too much.

The only thing I could think of getting my GB tri suit out for would be ITU Long Course. At least that entry fee is more on a par with an ironman event and is similarly a long race that I can find justification for the cost.

No - this year's was too early. I'm all in on VLM. I havent ridden a bike outside since I entered T2 in Bahrain in December, and havent even been on the turbo since Jan! It'll take me some time to build the cycling back up.

lol - that's a different wedding. Having had a bit of a lull the last few years, this year is mental. I already have four. When you factor in stag do's as well, it feels like half the summer has gone already. I have one five week stretch of stag/wedding/wedding/stag then followed by 70.3 Elsinore!

The end of August one I'm just a guest, and thankfully it's only in Guildford (the two in May are in Somerset and Dublin respectively!). So I can get home quite easily after the wedding and then pack for Nice on Sunday, as we fly Monday.

Just wait until weddings turn into kid's birthday parties!! Rolling Eyes

Week after week after week after week of dealing with kids pumped on Iceland sugar based 'party meals' and plastic goody bag junk around your house for months on end!! Shocked Very Happy
