No Taupo for me this year as I intend being at Pearl Jam in Auckland the night before. Will make up for it by doing either the Taupo or Rotorua half ironman a few weeks after.

If they're too easy you're not going fast enough, or riding the right tracks

It's definitely not riding the right tracks as I have ridden them all multiple times. On the speed topic one can always work on going faster but I'm no slouch
