  • Sorry I missed you guys. Saw a couple Bsquad kits on the run, but no TRS. It was very cool to see Starky sitting at bike exit rooting people on while the other pros sat in their waiting room. Bummed I couldn’t stick around and get my award and watch…
  • Wasn’t sure whether to post here or in regular marks thread. More people caught that than I gave credit for
  • Bike against a speedway
  • In the south, people of all races fly the confederate flag. Are you in the South or North RR? I'm in Florida, right on the Georgia border, but my entire family is from Michigan. I don't personally have one. Just saying you could see one on a parke…
  • In the south, people of all races fly the confederate flag. I’ve also found its pretty easy to find the true racists down here. There is no behind the back racism like that coach got. The racists down here are pretty loud and proud about it. That sa…
  • @Robert Rankin Dude you live in Florida. I guarantee Florida Man is a goat fornicator. I’m beginning to think Florida Man is just a midwestern retiree now
  • Why do farmers have sex with sheep on the edge of a cliff? They get scared and try to back up and move around a lot. Same with putting them in the corner of the pen. Disclaimer: I have never raised sheep. But we had this white trash dude on our bu…
  • Goats seem really awesome. Are they as awesome as they seem? If not what is the G.O.A.T. Non-goat animal? Yes and no. Goats can be pretty cool. But they eat fucking anything, and shit everywhere. We had a goat when I was a kid. Named petunia…
  • @gregk I couldn’t see any indicating markers with the crank attached but it came off my Felt, which I still have, that used a threaded gxp bb, so it’s probably safe to assume it is the pressfit 86. Either way, shoot me your PayPal and I’ll give it a…
  • @gregk I’m a moron, so excuse the stupid question. I’ve got a Fuji Norcom that came with Ultegra. Pretty sure my lbs had to swap bb to make my Quarq Riken work. I’m pretty sure that CS gxp pressfit will work, but like I said I’m a moron. You happen …
  • I've been using Mike Plumb at TriPower coaching since 2013. Full disclosure he's one of those "internet coaches" that get looked down upon on that other site. I tend to do okay with just being told what to do, then going out and doing it. I don't re…
  • Buzz Lightyear is going to rack up some candy for me
  • When I started triathlon in 2013 I read on Slowtwitch and actually learned a lot. It has gotten pretty terrible, and I'll I use it for anymore is the Classifieds section because I don't make six figures.
  • The 70.3 HC course has more elevation then PCB did for a full. Not crazy, but if they double the bike it will have over 2000 ft elevation, which is at least something different then pancake flat the whole time. @Robert Rankin I did PCB a long t…
  • Trying Florida again, mostly out of convenience. I went 9:40 last year and had a bad run. Figure with two years more in the bank I can give 9 hours a go, which is what it’ll take ages 30-39
  • Yeah I’ve got until Wednesday to think it over. Money is the big issue. I was planning on giving it another shot next year. Now I’d be pretty much gambling on a slot this year and giving up next year because I can’t afford to pay 2 IM reg fees this …
  • Yeah but even still that’s not bad, and the majority of it is in one 15 mile section. It’s actually a really fast course. I read it would still be the 3rd flattest Ironman course.
  • Yeah I’m 35-39. I never came out of the big ring on the bike. Swim is slow, and will be non wetsuit. Run is a wild card. I’ve run terrible there and run well. It’s got the most noticeable elevation on the course
  • Yeah I wondered about that too. How many people are thinking what I am. I went 4:27 at Haines in April in worse shape than I am now. The bike course really isn’t much worse than PCB.
  • Yeah I was surprised to see if, and don’t know how many slots are available. Out of curiosity, what age group are you in? Haha
  • They announced they did. Priority going to people who did Lou and Chatty. I emailed them and they already responded $825. I’m on the fence and they have until Wednesday
  • I’ve sent an email to IM to see what price point they opened up registration at. With the deferral option I wonder if it’ll be an easier Kona slot. I’m not above going that route
  • 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…
  • I'm so sick of hearing about the fucking jellyfish. For those of you who've never been stung, it's slightly more painful and long-lasting than a bee sting. Unless you have an allergic reactions, you're fine in an hour. Thank you! She's making it ou…
  • What’s most sad about that is I can’t tell if it’s a troll, or they’re just that stupid Also, there's an even bigger idiot in "davews09"
  • That Mike guy is a huge douche. Who goes through all that trouble (screenshotting and emailing sponsors?) because someone called their friend a name online? Dude must have a lot of free time https://giphy.com/gifs/donna-meagle-Pr8b6n1dVJOAU
  • 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? …

  • 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 …
