    Keep posting links to your tumblr in here. I don't have an account so can't subscribe but I really enjoyed reading those. Good luck with the epic 1000miles!

    My guess is he beat his club mates.

    Sorry to hear the run didn't go to plan, but well done for pushing on through! #wouldrep

    Good luck Ed, looking to see if there is live tracking but no joy yet.

    No, no wales accommodation sorted yet, although I have resolved to try and finalise it within the next couple of weeks. I have an irritating entourage of family who say they want to be included but then won't commit to being able to come. Happy to be put in touch with your mate to see if we can sort something out.

    I don't have a more recent photo but this is the set up I used at IMAT, and is very similar to the set up I used at Henley. As you say, essentially I fill 1 bottle with concentrated energy drink syrup and then dilute it in my stomach as I ride. I don't remember exactly, but I think the plan at Henley was to drink 1-1.5l water an hour, and because the aid stations were c. 30km apart that meant I needed to collect 2 water bottles at each aid station. That means I need space for 3 bottles for drinking at all times. Then, because I don't have any fancy integrated storage, I put my toolkit and spares in another bottle behind the saddle.

    I'm just trialling a couple of other options for Wales at the moment, but no matter which way I cut it I still end up with bottles all over the place.

    Cheers. I've recently been worrying a bit about nutrition, and the amount that I carry on the bike. I'd prefer it if I had just 2 bottles as you do, it looks very clean. However my current nutrition plan seems to demand 3 bottles on the bike at any moment, plus an extra bottle containing spares... looks very cluttered.

    Could be anything between 10k and 30 miles or something

    lol... I don't think it's ever been less than 100miles :-) You just keep on running various loops till the organiser taps you on the shoulder and hands over a medal.

    I think the forum's own @kl applied to race but didn't get in.

    Awesome. So what's your nutrition plan like for the bike? Doesn't look like you are carrying a lot of stuff...

    Next time I'm stuck on a super long layover I'm definitely going for a run round the departure lounge. :-)

    Tweet it to the UCI commissaries, see if they are as rigorous about the rules today...
