Hey everyone,

Im looking to get a new wetsuit for this year and was thinking of the 2xu Elite or even spending a little more and going the whole hog for the Velocity one.... Is the V:1 worth the extra dosh??

Also is there anywhere in the Cheshire/Stoke on Trent/Cannock area that i can try before i buy in a pool or water hole of somesorts?? I would go to Tri uk but its a bit far and they dont stock Orca or 2xu suits as far as im aware? Im thinking of using Royles for there buy back scheme idea as its not far away but do they have a testing facility?

    There is a sprint distance open water race at Barton uonder needwood near Burton on trent that has 2XU at, showing & allowing testing of their wetsuits..June 1st I believe. Cheserace website has details, www.chaserace.co.uk. Is that in the right geographical area?

    The June 1st thing is a race, so not (as far as I am aware) likely to be a regular thing..well on an annual basis only. I don't know of anything else in the area after that, but will keep my eyes open for you & drop a line on here if I see anything.
