Hi !
Anyone of you racing in Roth/ Germany this year ?
Anyone who has got experience on this course and willing to give me some
hints about the race ? Read that there`s a lot of half-legal drafting in
the pack. What about that thing ?
This will be my first attempt on the iromnman distance - quite nervous
about it, so if anyone can tell me something about this race I would be
quite happy !

Please post any info on Roth publicly so I won't bug everyone again with
the same question.  Hope you don't mind Doc.

We did the race back in '93 and will do the race again this year.  I
understand the swim will be in the c***this year.  The bike course has
changed but the spectators will line the route --- bring some money along
so you can get some beer and bratwurst.  Seriouly, the bike couse is great
with several short steep hills that break up the packs and are lined with
some of the 200,000 spectators.  This will be your greatest athletic
experience.  The run is dead flat, mostly along the c***, and does wind
around a couple of small villages.  Hop! Hop!!  Enjoy yourself & see in
the bier garden.
