The fork on the bike was toast and the shifters had broken off. I now have a green Kuota Kalibur fork on a red Kuota Kalibur frame. If the Europeans say something snarky to me I will just tell them that it is all the new rage in THE STATES. So my stuff is packed, and I have not gotten any sleep. I have to jump in the shower and be ready to leave for the airport in 45 minutes and my flight leaves at 8 am. I have to have enough time to get parked, take the shuttle with my bike on board, pay for the bike and watch them haul it away and then make it to my gate with some time to spare. I plan to crash on the plane.
I am not sure if you will need to go to the Ironman web page or to the Switzerland 70.3 web page for race information. Zurich is 7 or 8 hours ahead of Houston and my swim wave start is at 10:15 am in the morning of June 1st.
When I find an internet cafe, I will send an update!
