Polarising race pics

So as not to ruin the much more technical KQ thread!

Everyone in that KQ thread looks tall and lean. Probs only @stenard and @TROSaracen (sorry) that look a little meatier!

Why do you lot all look so gaunt (Stenard excluded who looks normal)

This is my, I am going to run the mofo in even if it was me pacing a friend to a (relative to PB) slow time. Compared to you lot I look positively obese.

The last time I did Lanza in ‘13 - don’t think I knew what was happening at this point. This year should be a bit better - also 10kg lighter at 72kg

Way to make a guy feel fat! (for a triathlete)

:joy:
I put myself firmly in that category!

I put myself firmly in the “solid” category but it’s only relative to some of the other walking skeletons.

Grimace from the sprint finish to duck under 80mins for the first time:

For a bit of variety, a grimace on a bike. This was about 25k into the final 35k climb up to val thorens. I think I was putting on a brave face!

And @Jgav - That photo of mine was a decade old, I’ve put on 1kg per year since then.
Here’s a current one, where my pot belly button is clearly visible through my top :see_no_evil:

Was also going to say what’s with the Swiss suit?

Swiss Tri gave offered me a place in Lausanne last year (I guess they were short of athletes). I thought that it would be great to do the ITU championship final in Lausanne, but didn’t do any BTF qualifiers, so had to race under Swiss colours
