Race Report – Norseman 2005

Norseman 2005 The race pictures are here We set off Wednesday 3rd August on our epic journey, lots had been made of this race, the hardest Iron Distance race in the world ! was one of the boasts. In 4 days time I would find out. I travelled with my support crew which was mandatory and who also happened to be my girlfriend Kelly. Also in our party was Nick Campbell from Chester Tri and Tom his mate and support crew. We decided to drive from the airport at Gardermoen to Rjukan which was the start of the climbing section of the marathon leg. This would mean we could drive the whole of the route backwards checking out...

Race Report – IM France 2005

Ironman France 2005-06-19 The photos are all here The first thing that hit me as we landed in Nice was how hot it was, it was only Thursday at 10.30am and it was already close to 30degrees. The temperature was supposed to be building for the weekend so heat was going to be an issue from the start. The transfer system to the hotel from the airport was pretty painless, 4 € to the rail station and a short walk.

The supporters with ties to individual athletes were here already and we...

Race Report – IM Austria 2004

IM Austria ‘04 Pictures are all here I was travelling with Nick Campbell and Lisa(his wife) for this one and we hadn’t actually met until 2 weeks before for a ride out to Audlem, needn’t have worried, we’re triathletes after all, get on with anyone. Simon Mac was going to make it under his own steam. We had managed to avoid all the carnage of the previous 4 months heartache with Ryanair by deciding to travel to Slovenia with Easyjet landing at Llubjana(sp?). Free carriage for bike and only an hour from the race by hire car it turned out to be the best option after listening to some of the horror stories in Klagenfurt from Ryanair transport....

Race Report – IMCH 2003

    Ironman Switzerland 2003 (3.8 Km Swim, 180 Km Bike, 42.2 Km Run) Pictures are here   Thursday 24th Arrive Zurich, pick up hire car, got lost!!! Apparently an Opel Astra has an internal light but as we couldn’t find it and thus couldn’t map read in the dark we spent the first 1½ hours of the trip sightseeing/map reading by streetlights. Friday 25th Met up with a few guys at the race briefing that I had chatted to over the Internet the previous week to go around the bike course in the car. This was to be an eye opener; I have never seen hills like it in a race other than watching the Tour de...
