We have a detailed breakdown on the swim, bike and run courses – giving you detailed descriptions, videos and tips on all the difficult or challenging parts of the course (Think MFD Hill for IM Australia) – some you may now already – others might have bitten you on race day if you hadn’t read our guide.
We’ve produced about 10 different maps of the course to help you understand it better together with photos of the course at regular intervals to give you a real sense of what the road is like. That’s not all though. We’ve also put together some cool flyby videos – computer generated that take you along and over the course in a couple of minutes – so that you can actually see and feel all the bumps and curves of the route helping you to visualise your perfect race day.
Weather is always a problem and we’ve gone back almost 10 years to get the lowdown on the weather in Port Macquarie during race week for Ironman Australia to produce charts that will help you predict the conditions that you are likley to face – and not just the environment. There are also a ton of charts and graphs analyzing the 2011 race from lots of different angels – that give some suprising and some not so suprising insights into the heart oifn AG racing (yep we’ve done all t he analysis by AG so every chart is relevant to you – not general information)
So do head over to Ironman Australia and have a look – and we’d love some comments to tell us how you think we’re doing and what else you’d like to see in the guides.
