ADSC Triathlon Festival - Abu Dhabi
Shannon kicked off the weekend for the team with a great win on Al Hudayriat Island over the Olympic Distance. In fact, she was so fast she beat everyone in the field bar one lone male. This was Shannon's first race for quite some time and a great indication that her dedicated and consistent work is paying off. We look forward to building the training over the next 2 months as Ironman approaches.
Pattana Triathlon - Thailand
What a day (and early birthday present!) for Nini, breaking the tape first and taking out her first ever overall triathlon win. After the late cancellation of her last planned race, Nini was fired up and ready to give it all from the gun. It is very pleasing to see her hard work rewarded with this performance and result. No rest for the wicked as Nini will go around again in 2 weeks time in China.
Ironman 70.3 Lanzarote
Both Camilla and Jeanne fronted up for the tough Lanzarote 70.3 on Saturday. True to the nature of the event, both battled through some tough moments but with valuable lessons that they can take into their next races. It was great to see Jeannie finish on a high as she stormed home on the run to finish in 4th position and the fastest run of the day.
Baptiste headed to one of the favourite French races, Natureman. He finished a very creditable 7th place in the Olympic distance race, beaten by some experienced pro's on the French race circuit.
