It’s a short week so we thought we’d bring you RTI a day early, and after Don’s struggle with the empty content cupboard last week, we have a veritable pile of material for you this week. For me, last weekend was Bintan Classic weekend, and Bintan, hearing I was coming, put on a special show to keep up it’s unbeaten record when it comes to races…
That’s how I felt on Sunday. It was unbelievably hot, but that didn’t stop the hardy boys and girls of ANZA from putting on a show. Well done to all, and I’ll let the race reports do the talking. Bintan, I will be back in November to pull one back!
Sun Warning What did come from the day was a confirmation that if you’re out in the full midday sun then you need to take extra precautions against sunburn on your back. I’ll spare the blushes of our 2 ANZA ladies but their burns were worse than those of Mr. Benson from a few weeks before. In Singapore with rides starting at 7am, new kit can lah! In Malaysia or Indonesia with rides lasting 4 hours over midday, new kit cannot, new kit plus sunscreen on back can lah! So what have we got for you this week?
- UCWT Perth;
- Tales from the dark/tri side??? [is there no end to the insanity, a mountain bike with a swim and run, what are you thinking? Ed.]
- Metasprint Triathlon from the ANZA youth wing;
- Cat 1 Bintan Classic race report;
- Cat 3 Bintan Classic race report from our Cat 3 winner; and
- Tri Corner from our holidaying Tri-Director
With that, I’ll leave you to get yourselves ready for the weekends riding. Remember, its a holiday tomorrow so there will be a Good Friday RTI from Rats Corner at 6am, and then on Saturday we will wave a fond farewell to the Longhouse as our gathering point. That just leaves me to say… Let’s be careful out there! Ed.
