Ballbusting in November

So, who's in?!

http://www.humanrace.co.uk/events/duathlon/winter-ballbuster-2011

It's a perfect Pirate winter event (even if the Tripetalkers try and muscle in with a support station on the hill that we really should challenge big time... - looking at JJ, Goose etc here!), to give you something to focus on post the IM season.

AND it's a doddle to do but you get lots of cred, and you can impress your non Pirate mates by telling them you did the biggest hill on the Olympic Road Race course a whole FIVE times!

Go on then, sounds like a bit of a laff

  • Ho ho ho. Did they have brave pills on special offer in Duty Free Gladys?
  • Yes, they were BOGOF with the silly pills   image
  • JFDI you load of pansies...
  • Lol Jaffa, I was just about to object to being on that list, and then the list took a turn for the better! I'm definitely up for supporting this one - might MTB over from home and pretend it's 'training'!

    Mmmmm.....cake......image

  • you lot, call yourselves aferletes! Pfft! image

    I'm off to bed!
  • SteadyCJSteadyCJ ✭✭✭

    Count me in for supporting.

    I might even cycle over there, if I can manage to stay on a bike and not injure self before then.

  • And the gazillion pounds we save on the relatively steep entry fee will buy a LOT of cakes.

    Big cakes.

    Maybe even hot chocs to go with them!

    mmmmmmmmmmmmm.....

    Just need to magic some disposable income and start entering events again! image

  • Ali, were you drinking last night mate?

    Unfortunately, having been really keen to do this one finally after hearing so much from Gladys and Henny, I have just found out it is the same day as the Mens Health Survival of the Fittest in Battersea Power Station.  Entered it ages ago with some mates from work and can't really back out of it now so am gonna have to wait till the Spring BB now.image

  • I'm looking forward to doing the Spring one afterwards to see how unfit and lazy I have become over the winter... is it the exact same course?

  • Yes, Shaun, both Spring and Winter are the same route. You'll grow to know it very well!

    Spring tends to attract a lower quality field (if that matters?) as the dates clash with national duathlon championships I think. Normally in the November one you get good athletes like Wayne Smith and Lee Piercy etc.

    Other than that, no difference.

    I havnt entered yet (its down the pecking order of impending payments), but I will. I'm up for this now, the "fear" will get me out on my bike lots through Oct and make me run more miles than I otherwise would have, so thats a good reason to enter in itself.............trouble is, it'll p*ss down on the day if I show up !
  • Wouldn't worry about that too much TR.  The weathers always goddam awful up there in November anyway.  image
  • Be careful it doesn't fill up TR: 217 entries so far, they had 380 starters last year so I'd guess the limit is 400 or so.

    With your weather track record I'm tempted to tell you to stay at home though image

  • Not sure if I can get there from East London on public transport in time for a 7am start actually!!
