I am in. Load of us from Worcester Tri have been tempted!

Promises to be a fun weekend away.

Anyone got any tips for the bike leg !? 👌

Fab race. Enjoy. Very Cool. Better then any IM Italy ever will be. Shame WTC didn't just buy into it.
Tri-bars n TT bike? - Yes
nb. The hill gets steeper the third time. Wink

Sorry TC, I disagree. Great that WTC did get interested in Elbaman. It's a great race as it is, great atmosphere, beautiful scenic route. It would have be spoiled by WTC. Stay free Marco !! (the organiser)

yeah your right Fix. I meant it was too Cool for WTC!
Just a shame the lack of M-dot branding means so many people just haven't heard of it (despite our efforts) or dismiss it Doh

So excited about this race. Love M.Dot sometimes. Only sometimes. After Tri X, needed something very special to get even close and reckon this fits the bill. Brutal will have to wait patiently, lol.

Planning to go road bike with TT bars. Got a 56 on my TT bike. Ha ha. That's my excuse 😂

We had crazy conditions here yesterday ! 2 lap swim. Choppy on first lap. Second lap we had thunder, lightening and torrential downpour.

1.08 = 14 min slower than PB 🏊⚡️⛈ 🌊

Ran to transition and thought this is going to be a real long day in the saddle especially with the epic course containing loads of steep descending switchbacks. Ran out of transition through knee deep water thinking this is crazy to get stopped by marshals who called it a day.

Right decision as two of the first four out on the bike came off !

Later that afternoon, sun was out and we cycled the course.

Long time to train for a Ironman for an epic swim only 😡

Ideas on any upcoming races in U.K. to use some of the fitness (mostly bike as that is what I have prioritised in training) 🤔
