    There seems to be something behind it as next week temperatures are plummetting. Haha that means STORM. Cold and windy? Just like Wales? Hahaha

    I'd be happy enough with 17/18 if it's not too windy!!!

    What was the temperature at Outlaw last year? 

    We can cope with the temperature what we don't want are the headwinds.

  • .. or a tailwind all the way round image

  • I have an extra 11-28 cassette with me if anybody wants me to bring it. Not as good as the Tailwind Pingu suggests but may help!

  • UK people looking for sunshine even on IM races image

    I'm tempted by the offer of the cassette as I'm on a standard compact with a 12-25 at the back (I think) but am a bit afraid of changing the cassette and faffing around at the last minute.

  • Meldy and Foggy ... did you guys further back say you were on the Birmingham 14.10 flight on Tuesday 14th ??

    Have you got transfers included? 

    If you haven't got one booked already do you want to get one together, would need a mini bus I'd guess with the bikes? 

     

  • Mouse lets bring it and maybe have the IM Support team help you? There should not be a need to modify the chain length.

  • M..o.useM..o.use ✭✭✭

    That would be lovely, thanks Hokori.  image

    I shall await you yelling at me, like in Tenby.

    It will be my pleasure image

  • Hokori - I have PM'd you about something private and a couple of weeks ago, I mailed you re your mate and support on the bike leg. Is it ok for me to cadge a lift to support?

  • Pingu that sounds like a plan!

    i think there are plenty of taxi/busses at the airport but might be wise to prebook, will be 3 bikes between us, 2 x Foggys, 1 x Meldy and yourself so far

     

    i'll grab the 20degs and a tail wind please image

  • Cool.  I emailed the place we're staying at earlier to see if they could suggest anyone so I'll report back on here when I hear back.

    Anyone else on that flight?

  • No - i arrive about an hout later I think so will just grab a taxi

  • This time in 11 days we'll be imageimageimage up Haria/Mirador 

  • This time in 8 days I will be stuck in a metal tube with Barlos several thousand feet above the ground with no survivable means of escape imageimageimage

    I am sure he will be more than happy to have you around to chat!

  • Dear All, I have requested the nameless bib post to be deleted in an attempt to restore identity privacy as per a very polite request from a dear forumite.

    Please note that I assumed anybody that would print the club as PSOF or Pirate Ship of Fools on a race join form would not mind their Bibs associated with this particular forum thread.

    If anybody here resented my decision and was upset by the consequences of my assumption please accept my sincere apologies image

    Cheers (The only spaniard on the PSOF nationality list)
