  • What a guy. Met him on the Outlaw run.

    Inspiring, off to vote.

  • He's not bad

  • I gave him a PSOF badge in The Bridge pub the day before Outlaw. image

  • Got to be Barlos. Bloke's a legend.

  • barlos is a ledgend but hes not on the shortlist.looks like 4 top class athletes and TC........I think what TC does as an ordinary working guy is amazing.....2011 he did every long distance event inthe uk and the quin...........this year he won the deca as well as doing numerous others..............after the deca he did outlaw 3 weeks later............as well as fitting in one other in between.i think it was the forestman........

    the guy isn't the youngest guy out there competeing but he still keeps going somehow..........

     

  • I don't think Barlos is on the list of options, Dustboy.

    *rolls eyes*

  • I have nothing but complete respect for this guy... shortly before my day was called to an end at the outlaw I was lying down trying not to fall asleep at the far end of the run course by the football club - TC was the one who stopped to make sure I was OK, gave me two of his remaining few Nuun tabs and said a few very encouraging words.whilst slowing his run pace to match mine for a few minutes before I dropped back again

    One of the legends of amateur sport in my view!!

  • Voted. He kicked my ass in London last year.
  • This guy sounds like a true inspiration. I've voted.

  • TC is as mad as a box of frogs, but a nice guy to go with it.

    he produced one of my all time favourite tri moment at Challenge Henley in 2011 (1st year).  for some reason he missed the race start so rocks up a few mins after the swim had set off wondering what the feck was happening. he was told to get going, and dived into the Thames and promptly started swimming in the wrong direction!  a canoeist had to go and tell him he needed to turn around.  it wasn't his best IM swim time....  image

  • Anyone who stops to help someone less fortunate gets my vote.

     

  • Not on the list but i would have to nominate Simon Bourne who has just become the world World Decatriathlon Champion out in Mexico

  • Rather fancy volunteering to marshall the outlaw now. Sounds like an amazing event, ill no doubt compete in it one year but i'm definitely not gonna be ready by 2013.

  • TC is one of the nicest guys on the circuit. He not only races, but insists on helping on take down the next day. A true gent and star.

  • TC was on the telly a few years ago having come a cropper on his bike covered in road rash the interviewer said rather worridly "game over for you"

    "Its only skin" was the reply before cycling off
  • boing image

  • I would've voted for myself but I wasn't on the list so voted for TC.

  • I would've voted for GB but he wasn't a triathlete this year!image

    Top bloke from what little I've spoken to him. Go TC!

  • TC gets my vote as well

    Top bloke

  • had to vote for tc - i might run into him at AT next year image

    and I would argue, but then realised I didn't finish a triathlon this year image

  • Boing!

    Anyone who's not voted, get your vote in now, he's not far off the lead.

    It would also appear that you can 'accidentally' vote twice, well it did allow me to from a work pc but maybe thats due to a roving profile or something?

  • BB.it only lets you vote from 2 different comps..otherwise the message says we have already counted your vote.............

    you can vote from your phone though as well

  • Ive voted from my home and work pc at least twice!  seems to be a glitch which doesnt always register that youve previously voted, could depend on your connection, roaming profile, whether youre accepting cookies etc.

    In the interests of research ill see what happens when I try my phone.

    Its neck and neck TC is 1% behind now!
