Haven't seen this posted anywhere, so apologies if it has.
Big congrats to Jeanni Seymour with silver at the Ironman 70.3 World Championships!
Can't find a race report yet, but will post if I find it.

Anybody else having issues with their gym tracker? My gym visit count dropped from 60 to 32 all of a sudden (with January all of a sudden showing zero visits where it previously had around 12). Only 1 of 13 August swipes have been recorded. (My workouts are all in excess of 30 min although there isn't any facility to swipe on exiting the gym so the 30 min workout duration shouldn't even come in to play)
You guys are stressing waaaaay too much about these changes; just make your posts bike topical e.g.
I added some new gatorskins to my bike yesterday; man, they are the BEST. I had to do it because Donald Trump thinks he can run again for president in 4 years time. What a [d]00s; I mean did he not screw up the country enough in his last... etc etc etc etc.
*Disclaimer - This post does not necessarily reflect the writer's own views, it is purely to illustrate a point by example. (Everybody knows Gatorskins are not the best)
Frankly, even if I had the money I would be too embarrassed to ride it. When riding a R400k bike I think you should at least have a modicum of talent and not get dropped by a guy on a dikwiel with a basket.
Having gone through the same thing where bikes were taken from garage (Electrical garage door that was forced open - Not that difficult when you have 3 men lifting the door and basically wrecking the entire mechanism) I implemented the following
- Deadbolt in the door that gets locked every night (Basically I added a steel bolt in the rail the garage door's wheels run on)
- Thick Chain and lock to secure bikes to garage wall
- Skunk pepperspray that gets triggered by motion in the garage (also activated at night) (I have activated this by accident once, in the confined space of a garage it is more than a little potent!)
There has been a few more theft attempts since then but without on success on the criminals' part
some of the “highlights” of the proposed legislation
deleting of licencing of firearms for self defence
reduction of licence period to five years
reduce number of allowed licences
limit ammunition per licence
unlawful to reload ammunition.
Bah, first one isn't that impressive, his velocity was 0. (Some Vegan oke might try and break that world record, he will need to gets his gearing right and not drink too much coffee on the morning of the attempt though)
I suppose with the second hand one you might be getting a cassette included in the price; the new one will require a cassette to be bought in addition to the trainer. (Agreed though, price seems a little high unless he bought the R14k version from CL)
