I too have an SL Pro Carbon, absolutely love it and a bargin. I got mine with Sram Rival for £999 which it doesn't look like they currently do.
The build with full Ultegra also for £999 looks like a steal though.

Great bike, super light and a great ride. Frame soaks up loads of the bumps and can still get the power down. I'd definately buy another. see conversation

Really enjoyed the event and will hopefully be back next year.
Only things I can think of to improve on next year, 10 second intervals between swim starts rather than 5.
Also I understand there was only a few of you organising in spare time however a number of us emailed and failed to get a response quite a few times almost resulting in not getting entry into the event. Only a minor niggle, but thought I'd mention it.

Also are the finishing videos up online? see conversation

I found it just takes time for your feet to harden up and get used to it.

In the meantime compeed plasters may help. see conversation

I finished in 32mins at London, could have saved a couple of minutes I reckon as it was a wave of 500 odd!

Will be swimming all winter so hope to have that down next year. see conversation

Really enjoyed that event, sorry I didn't get to meet up with any of you guys, had to dash off soon after I'd finished.

Finished in 1hr17.07 which I was pleased with for my first sprint.


Swim - 7.49
T1 - 1.12
Bike - 40.55
T2 - 0.56
Run - 26.14

I was a bit worried about the swim as the quickest I'd done in practice was 8.35, and I'd put down 8mins on my entry form, thought I'd be holding people up. Turns out people were in my way and I could have gone faster! So very please with that time

T1 went ok, fumbled with one of my socks so will just not bother on my next sprint.

I went out hard on the bike and thought I'd overcooked it straight away. Got overtaken on the first slight hill by a guy that was in my swim lane but quickly clawed him back. Pulled away on every flat/downhill but lost time on every hill, I know what I need to work on... Didn't get overtaken once after the very beginning so very pleased with that.

T2 went reasonably well, though I forgot to change my lock laces from old running shoes to new, so that took a bit longer.

Run was ok too, found the first lap a killer but eased into it fine after that. I like doing a few multiple laps as you know exactly whats left after the first one. Though you also know you've got to do that hill again!

Overall reall pleased with my result, especially as I've not actually run or cycled for a month due to injury! see conversation
