My mate Sean was finding it easier logistically to swim in a pool. They are nearer to his home, transition was easier, it was easier to sortbout your morning etc, etc.

You may be surprised to learn that it’s not always obvious which way round to go when setting off (at least from the Chester end); I’ve got it badly wrong a couple of times.
My records - time trialling at 11mph vs 23mph including the gates
That’s pretty bad news for him.
Probably not much consolation at the moment, but if he is dead set on having another attempt to break the record it’s probably better to have this happen a week in rather than deeper into the attempt.
I do think that the very limited sleep means that accidents like this are more likely.
Blimey, must have been some obvious damage to call it there and then.
How’s Ron cowboy doing?
