That's a good dismount, was it the Bustinskin event, other than the weather I enjoyed it a couple of years ago, although a lot of the run was a bit boring.

Yes Bustinskin. The juveniles seem to think it's funny for some reason. Other comments "isn't it cheating to do the swim and bike at the same time?", "did Jackie Chan teach you that move / guess you had to deal with the guy in 85th place who was gaining fast" etc etc etc

Does anyone else have to suffer abuse like this in the name of sport?

You look a bit like a dog marking its territory.

IronVampiro sadly my other tri suit has sprung a compromising hole. Thinking of selling a teenager though, and using the proceeds to buy new kit.



Make them stop now Mad

The most surprising thing is your teenage son's sense of culture. Very tasteful

My kids are far too young for such banter, but at least it looks like yours are kind of interested, which for teenagers is pretty good I'd imagine. I have no idea if mine will want to come along to any events in 6-7 years time, if indeed I'm still doing it then.

Whenever I say I have a race coming up the first thing my eldest (9yr) says is "Oh we don't have to come and watch do we"

When I sliced my toe off at the weekend first thing she did was piss herself laughing.

Whilst the teenagers like to demonstrate piss taking bastardness they are probably pleased when their peers ask about your sporting prowess Smile

Bonus points for photoshopping around the spokes, but quickly negated by not fixing that "D" on the wheel.

I would be very pleased if one of my kids had those photoshop skills!
