Subject: Memorial Hermann Ironman 70.3 Texas : Official Thread
Hey guys, I'm just trying to plan out what race wheel setup to use for Galveston 70.3.... I would like to use an 808 front with a disk rear, but I'm worried about the cross-winds that everyone talks about in their race recaps.  Did anyone use this setup in previous years, what speed were the cross-winds and how'd it go?  Thanks! -Rod

FYI there is a thread about this race on the Texas forum. I think its called Galveston 1/2.  Have not done the race so can't answer your question. Sorry

I'm in! Not trained for it at all but I'm in

Last year I rode tri spokes front and rear. BIG mistake! The cross-winds were brutal, especially on the back half of the course. I had serious trouble controlling my bike. The tri spoke in the back might have been ok but not the front.

I am in! Maybe not totally ready, but definitely IN !!

Has anybody heard about a practice swim at Lake 288 this year? Will check the Texas thread as well.

I'm in as well.  I just did a ride with 18mph winds...and I'm definitely thinking I will NOT be using a disk wheel in the back if Galveston has similar.
