This isn't an official 'race' bike course, but it goes down in husband / wife history as one of the most miserable experiences we've ever had together. 8,000 ft of climbing, average temps of 90, minimal shade, fucking awful... There was a point where we were praying for a gas station to find water, bought two gallons and dumped it on ourselves. This was one of the days when the wife dropped me toward the end
I figured it would be hot. I've been heat acclimating to some extent. Probably will still hurt pretty good and give me a weight reality check (aka stop eating you giant fat piece of shit Dave). I'm going to look like an over stuffed sausage in my race kit.
I thank Canada for: - Poutine - A fantastic exchange rate, especially for Ironman races - Drinking age of 19 (I went to college in Buffalo, so this was clutch) - All the shitty TV series that come out of Vancouver and keep my training rides going in the winter - Making smoked salmon common place for breakfast - An IKEA that's reasonably close (still haven't gone though) - Barrleman (definitely a great triathlon) - Toronto airport (great option, even if 3 hours away, for cheap international travel) - Some seriously great, friendly people, and fucking strange ass folk such is the case w/ @AaronWebstey
Considering people who qualified for Kona but wouldn't under the slot system, or examples of the hypothetical roll downs plus the consideration that athletes that did race may not have otherwise done so given an earlier season victory / qualification.
