I think that's a long shot, Athleet, I don't think anyone is doing IM France here. I've had a look on the '2004 Turn Out' page and no one's down.

Good luck for the race and welcome to TT.

I did IM France (along with my Wife) in 2002 - before they made the course easier!
It's a brilliant race - the lake is crystal clear and warm.
The scenery is awesome also - have a good one!

IM must be easy if your used to ultraman!

Normally when they say easier they've changed the bike route to go around a hill. IM Switzerland say they've done something like that and expect the IM world record to be broken this year. Last years time was 8:27.05 and they expect it to be faster than that!

Think they have taken the hills out of the marathon section. Would like to do this event. Anybody up for it in 2005? Be a good one also for first time Ironmen competitors.
