Best of luck to Mitten, who is doing her first IM in Austria today.  imageimageimage

And if I'm not totally wrong I think Iron Tractor Boy is doing Austria too.

Race well peeps. xx



  • Oooh, race well Pirates!

    I'm glued to the laptop today watching some friends tearing up IM Austria image Go Newhaven gals!

    ITB did 1:32:27 in the swim and likewise is making good progress on the bike.  image

    If anyone knows FattMatt's proper name or bib number, the Karnten athlete tracker is here:

  • that's the winner home now - Marino Vanhoenacker in 7h 52! Wow.

    One of my girls is out for her plod now, the rest are still in the wobble phase. Come on gals, I#m getting square eyes and pressure sores here image

  • WEll done pirates! May the force be with you for the end of the bike and the run.
  • Go go go Mitten - you show those armwarmers who's boss! image
  • waaaaaaaahhaaahaaaaa one of my girls took 14.23 in T2 - clearly stopped for a brew up image she had a cracking wobble phase though, mebbe she needed a wee sit down to recover!
  • Go Mitts!!!

    'lil Mitten off the bike in 7:40:49. image
  • NamNam ✭✭✭
    ITB off bike in 7:13:02 and his first run split is up too. image
  • Good work those two! image
  • Fattmatt finished - good time image

     And I saw a female pirate when the camera moved on to the run course around transition - she looked like she had short dark hair - couldn'r read the bib no!  Looked comfortable though.

  • go piratesimage
  • Any news on Mitten?
  • Oh! watching the feed and someone has just proposed to his girlfriend as they ran down the chute together!

    <sniff> I must have a cold coming eyes are mysteriously running image

  • PUP - did it remind you something?

    Well done Pirates!

    A work aquaintance of  mine was doing this but he finished ages ago....

    Stupid IM Live... you can hardly see the finish line nor the clock because of the stupid central result list in the middle of the picture?

    And I can't work out the tracker as it doesn't seem to give a total time?  Or am I just a bit blonde tonight? image

    Go Mitten!!! image

  • Come on Mitten! 

  • NamNam ✭✭✭

    website race clock says 15:52.

    is Austria 16 or 17 hour cut off?

  • NamNam ✭✭✭

    ITB was home in 14:32:33.  Well done Tractor Boy. image

  • Congrats ITB!! 17 hr cutoff for Austria. Go Mitten!
  • I think Austria is a 17 hr cut off ....  otherwise I was well outside image
  • NamNam ✭✭✭
    So how are the cut offs determined then?  Is Austria a much harder race than Frankfurt then? image
  • NamNam ✭✭✭
    oh they've finally taken that bloody results screen out of the centre of IM-dead.
  • NamNam ✭✭✭
    I spoke to soon... it's back... image
  • Determined by local licensing I would assume ..
  • NamNam ✭✭✭
    so nuffink to do with the course at all then? image
  • No, not when you look at Nice which is 16

    Come on Mitten !!!
  • It did a bit SP image

    Got a full house o f clubmates home safe, so I am a happy mixture of relieved and proud! 

    That live feed was a shocker though, why on EARTH did they put the results in the middle of the screen like that?
