Been thinking about whether I want to try again for Lanza next year am I not sure I do. Entry fee, flights, accommodation is going to run to £1K and that’s a lot to spend on myself these days. I know we could take the kids but its easier to just go on holiday elsewhere.
So been thinking about doing something in this country with a bit of a sting. Lanza has wind and hills and is tough. But there are plenty of tough ones over here.
So looking at Triathlon X or the Brutal. Triathlon X looks mental and I massively worry that I could even do the bike course. I’m 6’5’’ and the lightest I have been in years was 94kg. Even at that 33% is going to destroy me. Also its quits early in the year.
Brutal looks good, is later. Bike loop looks boring though. I know at least one year I read they had to bin off the Snowdon run because of weather and if that happens its pretty rubbish.
Anyone got some recommendations on either?
ETA - Also are these bike courses TT or better on a roadie? Guess I could look at going for a triple the front. My roadie is a piece of shit though, so might need to squeeze a new carbon frame from somewhere.
