Steve Yates WINS Age Group in Middle Distance Triathlon at the weekend
I managed a 9th place overall (850 finishers), and to win my Age Group in a time of 4hrs 11mins and 01 sec.
The splits were as follows:
Swim: 1.9km 26 mins 09sce
Bike 90km: 2hrs 14mins
Run: 21km: 1hr 28mins 12 sec
The race conditions on the day were OK – it was a 6.30am start in the lake for the 1.9km open water swim but the water temperature was 17c and the air temperature was quite mild for the bike section. It had rained over-night so some of the 2-lap 45km course was wet but it wasn’t windy which meant times were reasonable quick. Fortunately, the 21km run was completed before the rain came down.
I’ve attached a photo from the finish line. Thanks Ride 24/7 for your continued support.
