Change the title to that!!!

CLASH OF THE TTITANS 🤣🤣🤣

Also, I need some advice;

1) I donít own a wetsuit. I cried when I saw how much the B70 helix costs now. I loved my old one. I never got on with my Zone3, but did rent one this summer and found it to be okay (Aspire) is there anything else I should look at? (£300 or less, second hand is fine)

2) Disc wheel suitable? Is the course suitable for a disc?
Toss up between that or a set of deeper wheels

People dislike huub for longevity. Personally I love them. I have a few different models of theirs. Big black friday discounts on at the moment.

I use a disc there. It's 98% pancake flat

Cheers stenard.

I canít buy a wetsuit yet, as Iím expecting to lose a further 20lbs by April.
If I donít, itís no big deal, but I donít want a baggy wetsuit. (I was an SMT in the B70 and it was a good fit)

I suggest Stenard stops licking those late-season wounds and gets entered. This is where the 2019 action is at.

Surely 6 months is enough time to recover? Laughing

Shame this is a painfully long way to come for a race, might see if I can con(vince) the Mrs into a trip down.

Someone needs to come last I suppose. Totally bottled it in the rain last time on the bike after nearly ending up in the hedge twice. Loved the run in the mud though.

Don't take this away from me Jeff.
Get yourself down there, Wheezy may get on it too.

Do whatever you need to do but don't think you can take my last place off me.

Was that 2016 Jeff? Certainly pi55ed it down a lot that year; just after I finished the heavens opened, when I was in the massage tent.

There were some puddles to run around on the track up to the finish, but if you're in the first wave, the rest of the run isn't too bad, and it's covered by trees in most places.
