Thank you for posting this report! I am thining of IM France 2019 as my fist full. So, you would recommend?
I read that there have been DNFs due to some people crashing on down sections of bike so that got me worried.

It will either be France or Ireland. Not sure yet.

thanks and any tips would be fantastic!
