  • Ideas for future articles: -Allan keys - the definitive shootout -LIONEL SANDERS - THE TECH CHOICES THAT WILL BRING HIM KONA GLORY IN 2019 And more seriously: -Direct to consumer versus Lbs purchase - a comparison, where you buy two bikes simultane…
  • Fuck that @AaronWebstey. Thumbs up if you have beef with ST. Can we get this Simsbury guy over here? Great troll yesterday opening 10 Sanders threads at once, +100 bonus points for the Power Cranks reference.
  • I just ordered weed online AND submitted my application. Life goals. It's now legal in Canada, right? Not derail this thread but "allegedly" in Edmonton last night people were lining up at 3 AM outside a particular store just to buy some products. …
  • So I gather Rooster Endurance will not be racing any of the Middle East events next year...
  • Two words: pou. Tine. Dear @AaronWebstey, Even though the largest poutine chain is run by an anglophone entrepreneur from Toronto, it's a French Canadian tradition. You can claim donairs or garlic fingers or whatever the hell you grease up with o…
  • He was first in the military division. I didn’t realize Kona even had that division. I always thought it was just Pro and AG. Macca posted the same thing and it was hilarious to watch people jump all over it. I knew they had a military division, bu…
  • You need to come to Montreal to understand this, but if you head to the main club district in late January, in the middle of a -40 cold snap, you will see a lot of men in Canada Goose parkas complaining about the cold, and a lot of women wearing ba…
  • One thing is almost certain after that Kona performance: He's going to crush everyone at IM Arizona.* * Unless Sebi shows up with 25 fewer marathon miles in his legs.
  • I loved all the tweets from ex-participants, even champions which deliver absolutely zero content except to remind us all that the tweeter was actually connected or relevant in the past. Do we have any other sports where this behavior is so pervasi…
  • I was stung in the ankle by a bee (I assume?) in the first minute of the bike during a triathlon one year. It hurt a lot for yeah, about a minute, but I had no issues finishing the race. "IAN. YOU. ARE. AN. IRONMAN! "
  • Re Callum, I can’t stomach going back to ST but am enjoying the comments on Cal’s IG post that are dragging up Cam’s association with a confessed sexual offender that abused a young girl. The more TriSutto’s sexual assault and Australian coaching ba…
  • More Lionel!! Same photogs! That's the stare of a broken man on a Halifax pier...
  • I couldn’t watch and had to keep checking in. How long did Dreitz pull Lange along on the bike? Around 104 miles according to ST. There looked to be one blatant pull, and he rode on the front for a long time to get to the group. If Dreitz didn't …
  • Other than them wearing the same kit, how is it different than how TO was verbally organizing a train starting the bike? Dreitz didn’t bury himself for Lange, he still had a decent run. If they wore different kits, would the perception be the same? …

  • Think Frodo is glad he sat this one out? I know he's formidable, but that run by Lange...
  • . Maybe a major city, not on a tropical island that cost a million dollars to get to? Beijing? I would actually vote for Nice. It satisfies your criteria of not costing $1M to get to, but it does cost $1M to stay there. I think the draft pack of t…
  • I’ve been at work since 6:30 am can someone get me up to speed? Ryf is gunning for a top 10 overall.
  • Ryf just biked something like 4:26. Damn.
  • How much time can Ryf put into Charles in 15 km? Which of the uber runners like Aernouts are we not giving enough respect to for the win?
  • Barring a superhuman effort from Sebi, the only big name missing from the chase right now is Lionel. Team Germany working hard not to let him back on, and with them sitting within 4 minutes of the lead 3 (call if 5-6 minutes at T2?), this is going t…
  • Is Wurf going to bikepack home after the race? That's a big saddlebag. Oh wait, that's Amberger. But he does have a big bag on his saddle, too.
  • Starky looking pretty good for a guy who was run over by a truck within the last two years. I look forward to his 6.5 hour suicide mission today.
  • Poor Matt Hanson, last pro out of the water. He is cursed in Kona On the plus side, he managed to blow past the first woman within a few miles of the the bike start. TV time!
  • Is it a bad sign that the video is crashing during "Live Bodymarking Coverage"?
  • I'll be sitting in the shower watching to get the full effect.
  • @slickfins_Ryan isn't here yet. All I can report is that 6 people asked me if I were heading to the ST party today. I stabbed all of them. Also, Lionel is one cool, calm, confident mother fucker right now. Sebi was my pick but I might have to ch…
  • Wow, haven't posted in awhile. Bee hiding in the woods. Well that seems to have paid off. I won the 24km Cape Chignecto Trail Race yesterday. 24 km and 1557m of ascent including 2 hills about 1km in length with an average of 17% grade and loose gr…
  • Theme song?
  • "Now this is a story all about how My life got flipped turned upside down And I'd like to take a minute, just sit right there I'll tell you how I became the coach of a prince from Bahrain." - Macca
