That the elevation gain for the new IM Canada bike course. That's 8461 feet for the metrically impaired. Is this even legal?

    That seems hellish. The old Grand Columbian Tri in Coulee, WA had 1500+m of climb with 80% of it in the front half, and it was BRUTAL. All that climbing on a TT bike will not be fun.

    Eh, Knoxville had about 3000 ft for a half distance. It wasn’t bad.

    Good. At least not everything's becoming flatter and more boring

    I do a Gran Fondo with that kind of elevation gain in the fall. I can barely make it to my car afterwards.

    Since your bpfing everything anyway @James Lange ...make sure you keep right when I yell “on your left” this summer.

    Triple T in Shawnee Ohio is 4000 ft. for the half and about 2000 feet each for each of the 2 Olympics, but you have 2 days to do them. I did the half scale versions, and got about 1300 feet in each of the Sprints and 2000 in the Olympic.
    I would be dreading that for an IM @James Lange. Regarding TT bike, If I ever do Triple T again, I vowed to take my TT bike, but that's cause my roadie is heavy. If I had a carbon roadie, I'd use that for sure. The descents were rather technical, and being on the roadie was best for me. Full disclosure though, most folks had the TT bikes. I'm a dunce anyway.

    Just remember that you get 2.5 vertical km of descending, too. Sounds fun to me. But so does self flagellation.

    Maybe I'll just ride my mountain bike in the ditch. Can't get any more right than that.
