TriathlonOz - David

With transition open at 4.45am and roads closed at 5.30am it was an early start today but we were parked at 5am and David got himself setup whilst I let the kids sleep in the hire car - it's pouring with rain!!! We have no rain coats or umbrellas and there is very little cover so we waited til the last second to make our way over to watch David's wave start at 7.01am

He seemed to get a good clear start but there was some confusion around the buoys and I'm not sure if David got caught up in it or not but he was out of the water in about 32 mins so that would be a good swim I think.

The swim exit ramp was steep and they then ran along a boardwalk and into an undercover carpark for T1. He will have to run out of the carpark and up a ramp before the mount line then 2x 45km laps in pouring rain - luckily the wind seems to have dropped a bit!

He is about 1:50 into the ride now and we've just sat in the car with rain making it very hard to spectate.

We are near one end of the run course so will take a peek when the run leg heads our way - photos on my digital camera sorry.


If it's not hurting your not tri'ing!
