    in my defence, I think I was prob checking my gamin at the time, I didn't spot the photographer, and was probably just enjoying seeing the speedo saying 60kph!!

    also remember seeing some chat about the finish of f11/10, for which im currently trying to buy speed for, and the start sheet is just confusing, so can someone tell me in simple words what I need to do at the finish, is it just go dow the slip road at the earliest possible moment?

    what are the hive minds thoughts on calf guard/trip socks (other than they make you lok like a triathlete and remove that excuse for shaving ones legs), are the endura ones or no pinz ones significantly faster than each other?

    they are running their evening races as opens this year so at least its not a lottery as to whether you'll get a ride, but I agree, the two hours to get there for me is a no go!

    Wow, that's a massive chunk, p881?

    During a week in Mallorca I've set two new 20 minute bests, so hopefully I'll have a corresponding pb to go with them with 2 10s and a 25 next week!

    sea swimming is an order of magnitude harder than lake or river swimming, as there are so many more factors at play, ideally you'd progress through them and build your confidence up, when its choppy try to reflect that in your stroke (i.e. shorten your stroke and don't try and glide) and pick fixed points to swim towards (ideally on land) and look frequently, it also helps if you are able to breath away from the oncoming swell as you are less likely to end up with a mouthful of water than air that way around!

    As a stronger a swimmer I love it when its rough as it gives a much bigger penalty to those who get through the swim to bike/run!

    Pick if the water the day before the ETU middle distance champs in 2015, I was one of very few people practicing while everyone else was campaigning for a cancelled swim!

    campag 11spd cassettes work with shimano 11spd though, without having to fart about with the wheel too much.

    you can also mill a bit off11spd cassettes to make them fit, there's a chap on the timetriallingforum that'll sell you one already done.
