2020 Goals

A 10 hour 30-40 minute finish would see you in around 10th or it has been in the last 3 years with a massive variation in weather.

Hmmmm…

  1. I’m doing the AG stuff. I know it’s expensive but want to experience it… and the GB tri suit makes you go faster, right???

  2. sub 1:25 HM. Already entered Edinburgh which is quick.

  3. I had an injury hit 2019, some of which was freak incidents, some poor body management. Slightly less running, more cross-training and rowing!

All I want is the fastest bike leg at my local sprint, been close a few times, fingers crossed I can nail it in 2020!

Hi All, newbie here (short time reader first time poster) so thought this would be a decent thread to poke my head up!

Entered so far;
Dambuster tri (sub 2:10 target)
Italy 70.3 (AG Worlds qualification hopefully!)

Plus plenty of running events and TTs to support. Swimming needs attention however!

Good luck with the qualification, I presume that’s for St George in 2021?

Yep that’s the one, should be possible but then you never know who else is going to turn up on the day!

@tunster @jeffb. Boys, as another TTer who’s hitting the big 5-0 next year, I’m not sure it qualifies as a goal!? Happy half century though!

The goal is to remain a TT’er into your 50s perhaps?
