  • IM Frankfurt - because it was one of the best days of my life.

    Roth - because it's high up on my bucket list.

  • IM Austria its so stunningly beautiful, its fast

    Roth: Has to be done

  • Ironholgs - I just did regensburg as a result of reading your book - it was such an amazing day.  Got the bug now though and planning for next year image

  • done IMA and IMCH and bike leg on relay at Roth

    very little to choose between A and CH - both lovely settings, great swims, superb bike legs, flat runs around the cities. A I would suggest is slightly easier bike course to CH.   Zurich is however easier to get to than Klagenfurt

    Roth is iconic but it has a split transition which can be a pain - the bike leg is very quick and has the Solarberg climb which is like a TdF climb with massive crowds cheering you on.  CH has something similar at Heartbreak Hill but not so crowded.

    Seen Frankfurt but not competed - and split transition again and a bigger risk of a non-wetsuit swim as the gravel pit gets very warm

    heard good things about Barca but not done it so no comment

     

    for me - it's a tough call between A and CH

  • IMA as i would like to get one fast time in before retirement...........as long as there was no chaqnce of a non wetsuit swimimage

  • Does anybody know how fast IMCH sells out? Want to enter for 2013 and it *appears* you can still register for 2012... does this mean there are spaces? I'm not going to go through the registration process just in case image

  • IMCH is slow to sell out these days - I think that's because it has become relatively more expensive than other European IM due to the strength of the SFr

     

  • I'm thinking IM Austria.... do you reckon it'll open just after this year's race finishes or do they leave it a few weeks?

  • IMA will open shortly after this one closes and you will need to be quick 'cos it sells out VERY quickly.

    EDIT:

    from the website

    Online registration opens the night between July 2nd and 3rd midnight Central European Time. Registration will close as soon as the IRONMAN Austria 2013 is sold out.

  • Thanks for the tip FB, you rock.

    God, can't believe I'm about to do it again....

  • If you dont get in, come to lanza image
  • You know what? I daren't. I've done the bike leg before and it was awful, when its that windy, I get scared that i'm going to lose control of the bike....
