Hi everybody

As my thought move to next season I am thinking about training camps

last year I went to one of the spainish islands for 10 days to JSNT camp was mainly based around cycling and swimming , very little running and other stuff. It was based around experienced tri people.

I am looking for a a week training somewhere next year for a week but want to include running as well as biking. My big problem is that my other half as now decided she want to do duathlons so is into the biking and running and want to come to a training camp as well. So I need camp for march that will have a couple of groups one for beginners and one for somebody is aiming for sub 2.10 next season

Has anybody got any recommandation , I want it to be warm and not cost the earth like club le santa

It's good that other half is invloved as I get less greif with the amount of training I do as she is out also see conversation

Hi everybody

I was wondering if anybody could give advice on good or bad club kit.

We out there looking for new club tri and cycling kit for 2010 , last year we had Imp sport on the cycling kit they were great and proved to be a great success . But on the tri kit ohh dear , it fitted nobody correctly and after 1 or 2 wears it wasn't up to much as it stretched and became baggy .

I personnaly ended up buying a new orca tri suit as did most of the other guys and girls in the club. On the female side they didn't go below a size 10 which was really a size 12 so the females of the club didn't have much of a chance to start off with .

We are based in the wonderful county of yorkshire so somebody in the north would be ideal , but for the right kit well enough said .

please your expereiences and advice see conversation

it all down to what you call fast 1 year ago I would have called 32 kph fast but now after a season I think around 40 kph

I don't wear a pointy helmet yet was thinking about one to make that extra difference from good age grouper to world qualifying age group

I used a dhb box this year to go to a training camp in spain I am a complete novice when it comes to taking the bike to bits. I did ok and was able to put it back togeather again quite quickly.

The box is strong and the only bad thing is the wheels go damaged on the way back , but wiggles replaced it free of charge.

The good thing about a box is that you can pack other things in there as well as on easy jet wasn't a weight limit on the box , friends took a bag and ended up paying another £80 as over weight

DHB is good and strong recommanded cheap compared to the cost of a new bike
