Is anyone on here taking part?

How is the training going? What are your targets for the event?

Personally, have never done anything like this before and I'm just aiming to finish within the time cut and not be last. Less than 6 months to go now and still only on the turbo due to incessant ice in Sweden - which is a concern. Need to get some long rides in outside!

    I'm following the training plan of Bryan Fogel and hoping for a top 20 finish

    Or a great documentary with diplomatic ramifications?

    Not really a fan of needles. A bit of mechanical doping might not go amiss though - do you recon they'd let me use an e-bike?

    The main message from that documentary - avoid di2.
    and then the next thing you know
