Righto… I am massively struggling to get out a decent update today (as in, photos) due to arriving in Genting Highlands to find that the super weird hotel that confirmed it had Wifi, actually didn’t… Which is like paying a stripper to put layers of clothes on, somewhat pointless. So, I am currently battling like a mofo with Starfucks wifi in the WORST hotel lobby on the planet:

Dirty and slow...

Dirty and slow…

So, instead of bringing you the low down on the Genting Highlands as promised, today is a short post on how to become a mother trucking LEGEND… Something achieved over the weekend by the very Iron Hawk. Some people do their first Ironman to finish, after all its as hard as it gets for a one day sports event (outside of Paris Roubaix) and this is a perfectly acceptable approach…. Unless you’re the Iron Hawk of Niseko. How about some of these points then on what he smashed out today in the Ironman Japan event:

  • 9 hours 53 mins finishing time
  • Marathon in 3.21 (Holy FAAARK)
  • 2nd in Age Group
  • 14th overall (beating some pros)
  • Bike course was windy and raining with 1900m of climbing

Yes, climb right in and accuse me of having a man crush, but fuck, I dare you to try resisting having one after a day like that. Topped off with Mr Ray Parker getting so pumped he dished out an awesome finish line photo bomb:

Mr P - Always in on the action

Mr P – Always in on the action: “God I want to shit all over this finishing strip…”

Like a real legend, he is typically understated and will no doubt cringe at me foaming at the mouth over today’s performance, but I feel its warranted… I also think that this definitely applies for the iHawk:


A massive NOMAD Congratulations dude, a huge day out and a great result! If you head to Kona it will make an awesome excuse to have a Dirty Hawaii leg of the DNWCT.

As for Genting – Full low down to come tomorrow… Summary version: Its shit. Yes, that sounds a bit harsh, but I have a full dossier being compiled at the moment to ruthlessly reinforce my point (starting with the Wifi). To give you a teaser for tomorrow, here is the Hotel in question, and no, this is NOT a computer generated image:

You'd be excused for thinking you'd taken LSD...

    I can confirm Parker shat right under the finishing chute 10 minutes before the winner came through
