Racing at Home

December 6

In addition to the Busso blitz this past weekend, several of our Home of Triathlon team sought out races closer to home, whilst Pamela headed over to Argentina for the final full Ironman on the 2018 calendar.

Joburg Ultra Tri - South Africa
At the South African long course champs (the inaugral Joburg Ultra Tri), Matt showed his class and cool head. A missing helmet an unusual circumstance but replaced in time for Matt to take the win on a hot hilly course. Next up for Matt, Bahrain 70.3!

Sattahip Triathlon - Thailand
Nini rounded out a superb year of racing at the Sattahip Triathlon, an Olympic distance event and part of the Thailand Tri-League Series. Strong across all 3 disciplines she was very happy to finish with the Thai title over the shorter distance. No rest for the wicked, Nini now heads to Australia for the start of squad training camp on the Sunshine Coast.

Ironman South American Championships - Argentina
It has indeed been a difficult 6 weeks for Pamela with her Ironman preparation marred by some unfortunate falls in training and whilst racing. Nether-the-less, she decided to head over to Mar del Plata and approach the race as a training day experience. With an early finish, it is now time to heal and recharge.

Need for Speed!
Short fast races were a trend over the week. Michelle, Sarah and Sandy had the opportunity to blow away a few cobwebs and trial out some tactics in some run races, whilst south of the equator, Jane was happy to jump back into the local mid-week Splash and Dash series, followed by a Hill climb Time Trial on Sunday.
All makes for great training workouts. Well done to everyone!
