I thought we were just basing it on the race itself. Otherwise, we'd need to factor in the company, the social abilities of the athletes (most seem to be loners who bugger off as soon as they've showered), the closeness of a decent pub, the quality of food in that pub, whether or not they serve guiness, etc etc.....

Hmmm, I think I'll write the Michelin guide to triathlons here.... Wink

Was thinking for the others....I know what triathletes are like!

For the record, I hate beer - but love a decent bottle of vino, dark rum, ice cold vodka, single malts, Napoleon brandy, absinthe....need I go on?

Not all in the same pint glass, of course! Evil or Very Mad

Post-race? Pah! Real men drink a few shots before the swim....

nah, i meant dieretics like coffee, tea, coke and alcohol (in partic) will all flush liquid out of your body. you'd be like a human tap if you took a few drams of brandy before kick-off! Shocked
