One guy was on a Merida Warp with Dura Ace C50's, Aero helmet trying to climb an 8%+ section in the aerobars .
I was riding the Tourmalet (West side) last year and there was a guy riding a TT bike up it!

Another gem from Slowtwitch.

I have seen someone bring a bike into a store, to have the rental race wheels removed, and the training wheels 'installed'.

At a WTC half ironman event, I saw two completitors stop, and ask if we had a spare tire (this was a run handup station). One of the two did not even know how to remove his rear wheel.

I marvel at the courage it takes to train for, and attempt a half ironman while not knowing how to take a wheel off...lol

Gotta be careful how you mount your bike in the back of the ute/truck people!

We may need a new thread titled "Should triathletes be allowed in pools?"

The guys at Slowtwitch argue about whether peeing in swimming pools is okay.

Didn't seem like much of an argument - seemed like 90/10 of "sure, it's fine!"

*retches*
