    Hi b man, yeah Im definitely doing the swim practice - probably on the saturday though. I arrive over from Ireland on Thursday - I'm going to put the bike back together and take it for a spin up the first big climb of the bike on Friday. This is to check that the bike is fully right and I want to get a sense of the climb before sunday. Your welcome to join me?

    cheers Ard,

    Had a good day overall, i'm looking back on my ambitions and laughing as the idea of doing the big climb before the race! Ended up i took the bike for a 5 k dawdle down the promenade! The first 20 k of the bike was flat and then it went steeply up and stayed going up for another 80 k then down hill flying all the way home. The best bike course I've ever done! Great race though recommned it to anyone -

    Well done pacman. Are you finished tris for the year now after that? I'm doing Kenmare in Sep.
