I saw these at IMFL - weigh about two tonnes! At $750 I thought about getting 3......

well I'll definately be getting one - it'll look just great on my trophy cabinet along with my 4 teir player of the year award from when i was 14!!!! Although it really should be made of carbon and black. Maybe I'll commission my own one :D

Briliant! That cracked me up man... You know I'd be interested if I was still doing IMCH, but having switched to Big Woody owing to the bambino arrival, I don't qualify anymore. :(

Got me thinking though... what sort of trophy could you get for a 'Big Woody'? :shock:

Postage and packing extra I assume.
Although it would look nice next to my winners plaque for first pro home at the 2008,70.3 championships in Florida.





I hasten to add that it is not my name on the plaque tho'

I second that, you've done the distance, so what if it isn't an M. event, its about doing it.

Is it just me (possibly cos I ain't done an IM distance yet!) but does that smack of tackiness or what?

On the other hand my Austria 70.3 winter training beanie arrived in the post today!
