3. VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! FREE TUNE UP TO THOSE WHO HELP!
 Adam Kourakis   (General Comments)
skip to next       Back to top
 
This Saturday from 3pm onward, I'll be volunteering at the Smith Falls Triathlon. As the old saying goes "there are never TOO MANY volunteers", so I'm trying to recruit a few more people to help out.

If you're able to help and spend a few hours (any hours between 3pm and 8pm helps!), I'll offer a free tune up on your bike. Bring your bike to the event and I'll make sure you leave with a bike that is clean, works well and is "race ready".

I'm volunteering in the transition and no triathlon experience is required. I'll give you all the training/info you need on site and the event is a lot of fun!

Fire me an email if you, or someone you know, is able to help.

For the numbers and pictures associated with this report, please see:

http://www.timetrial.ca/cgi-bin/ttq.pl?Q_series=WTT&Q_date=2018-Jun-19

It was a warm (24C) night with diminishing winds from the NWN, so seven women out of eleven managed to improve upon their 2018 previous 15km WTT best. I was the most improved with a 12.02% increase in my cube speed.

One rider was out for her first OBC time trial ever another was doing her first 15kim WTT this season.

Good riding all.

10. OTTAWA OPEN WATER SUIT
 Graham Archibald   (Wanted to Buy Items)
skip to next       Back to top
 
Hello all,

I am a new-ish swimmer and am doing my first open water swim mid July at the annual 'Bring on the Bay' swim (1.5km). I am wondering what is a good location in ottawa to rent/purchase a wetsuit for this type of race as I would be alright to buy one however I would certainly like to try using it first. Renting would of course also be a great option for my first event.

11. WANTED: MASSAGE THERAPIST WANTED
 Brent Atkins   (Wanted to Buy Items)
skip to next       Back to top
 
I am looking to recruit a advanced massage therapy student interested in gaining experience with elite international road cycling athletes in a international competition setting.
The dates are July 15 to 23 at the Tour of L'Abitibi which is a prestigious international cycling stage race attended by the best amateur Junior men from around the globe.The Tour is a Stage race lasting six days where riders compete every day and the overall winner at the end has the lowest accumulated time- just like the Tour de France !

more info here: http://tourabitibi.com/?lang=en

The massage therapist would be attending to the needs of six riders from the New Zealand National team on a daily basis, post race. Cyclists traditionally rely on massage to speed recovery in events such as this because the toll of daily competition wears riders down and reduces their capacity for work. Often the winner is decided by who can recover the best and perform optimally and consistently over the duration of the tour.The roll of the massage therapist is critical to the riders success.
While at the race the massage therapist will be fed and housed alongside the athletes and other staff-myself included.transportation to and from the event will also be provided by myself as well.

This would be a very challenging placement for any massage therapist, so the candidate should have a passion for sport performance as well as strong durable hands and forearms as they will be as tired as the athletes come bedtime. I guarantee the experience and personal gratification had by being a key integral part of a successful team at an elite international sporting event will endure for a lifetime.

12. TRIRUDY BACKEND AND COLDFUSION
 Pedro Ibarra   (Other Comments)
skip to next       Back to top
 
Good morning everyone,

I have been reading about the issue with hosting and ColdFusion (old technology and yes, not supported by lots of hosting services) and I think I agree with Stephen Morton.

I do think we would need to start by selecting the features TriRudy would like to have (the migration, porting, etc parts are not the issue at that stage) and second, what hosting services are out there that can host those features; These can be local or not but maybe we can get some kind of sponsoring or help by local hosting services. Once we know that, we also know what technology is supported by that hosting service and then we can decide if we use coding or open license plugins to achieve those features. I am not a coding person and I will say that web is not my forte but I am a project manager in the IT/Sofware industry so you can leverage that if you'd like and I would be more than willing to help out. The sooner the specs and requirements are laid out, the better and more time we can have to find specific help :)

Thank you,
