Boooooo, only Oxton Bank once.
On the new 2 loop bit there is a large very boring section along the old A46 but its flatish and straight
Going to make the feed station interesting
Flatter than last year, yes? Good news... and an excuse for you to spend money on whizz-bang aero wares!
Oxton's a short, sharp kick, Andy. Nothing freaky.

Just to let you know.....I have written to OSB to formally ask about manning a bike feed station now that the bike course has been revealed
What does a feed station need?
I can think of a location on the old A46 (second loops) that has access to parking, running water and somewhere to put a feed station...

Excellent. It will be good to meet the man that my Father repeats parrot fashion when Ironman triathlon comes up in conversation "lifetime bragging rights" (see Channel 4 / Eurosport). You're famous Andy, even if only amongst a small group of my family!Rw
OHHHHH man...i'm creamin!!!! lol
thanks so much (i hope it was me)
everybody can can do this!!!! just train, put the time in.......earn your legend!!!
Shame for the supporters...was nice seeing the family three times in some klittle village last year.
Course looks fast.
I finaly managed to plug the course into my map software last night, it's showing a grand total of 905 m of climbing, which is about ? of last year's total!
I also had a ltiile chat with Ian Hamilton about it at the Tri show and I asked him about the feed stations. He said that's something he still needs to work out!
Nope. It would appear Gladys has covered the whole course (save for a lap or two of rowing lake, which I'm confident won't add another 409 m of climbing).Rw
Having said that I don't understand why such a big difference between the two when comparing last year's route. MMR says 2260ft and RWGPS says 4089ft. Something wrong there.
