Yes, they then slagged off Barca and the drafting (but c’mon, not drafating, in a pace line, that’s how to do a nice easy 5:10 bike and run 3:25 off the bike)
THIS. IS. INCREDIBLE
I’ve just opened a fresh bag of Waitrose #1 Java coffee, things can only get more hyped from here.
I should be easy to spot out on the bike, my frame is now Porsche Miami Blue
Best colour ever for Stuttgart’s finest.
My last two have been black, one with sparkles!!
I had one in Lapis Blue; fab in direct sunlight. But that was before I got married and we had kids. Now everything goes on a 200 year old house; it’s endless.
The way you ran recently, I wouldn’t have particularly high expectations that I can run you down. Especially as I’m coming in with pretty poor bike fitness, which is likely going to hamper my run even more
Mine never moves
2010 with 35 k on it.
1-2 k a year
What is it? I ‘only’ had a Boxster S, it looked great with the 911 5-spokes on it. No traction, so scared myself a couple of times in the wet over in Germany. Managed a GPS 164mph on the Autobahn before I had to lift-off.
This one is a Cayman S.
I had a 911 ( 964 ) sold it cheap as I was skint…
Worth five times what I sold it for now…!
Thems the breaks I guess
yeah, that’s low interest rates making classic values go through the roof.
I saw a Cayman 918 in Miami Blue at the Gym the other day. Gert lush.
That’s the alloy bodied small turbo one.
I’ll probably get a boxster in that shape next, the interiors are beautiful on those.
You can’t fit a bike in them and the SUVs look dog rough
Back to the event…nice Morning efforts on the run for me, then a midday “training” session to get some fivers for the farmer and BTF.
Also got my Ibuleve and codeine
Just as a heads up, I’ve noticed this ridewithgps version of the route is different from the mapmyride version. Specifically around Down Ampney at approx 29 / 73km and also the ridewithgps version is short of going around the roundabout at 8 and 52km.
I’ll just follow the leaders, as I won’t be coming out of the swim in 25 mins!
Apparently the turn by RAF Fairford (Kempsford) around a triangular grass island is a bit rough, so caution was advised by the chap I know who recce’d the course. The only bit of the new course I’ve never ridden is the first out & back by the A419, but that’s very straightforward from what I’ve seen of it.
Cheers - much appreciated, I’ll have a Zoom right in
@Poet PMd you
Well…what a huge 30 second difference that made - LOL!
However, the original had missed the only “hill” on the course up to RAB
Matt, I’m still expecting you to do the etape the week before, it will be fun honest
Did I tell mention about the time I did a 140K ride the week before an IM, and then PB’d
Chest, belly, legs and face now shaved = 3W
Nutrition is all packed.
Wetsuit repairs have been completed - the Black Witch is curing.
Helmet is polished
Bike has been cleaned.
Waiting to decide if I should put the new chain on?
Got a short run and maybe a bike planned in for tomorrow (bike is weather dependant and if I CBA when I arrive at Swindon)
Are you doing a Mike Pigg and going topless then?
