A combination of the weather conditions and strong international fields led to some fast racing at SunSmart IRONMAN Western Australia last Sunday
In the men’s race Frenchman Denis Chevrot was the last man standing (8hr 5 min) , while the women’s race honours went to New Zealand’s Britta Martin in a new race-best 8:56
Once again , ANZA cycling were well represented with some excellent performances. Race of the day coming from Roger Hastie who swam the 3.8k around the iconic jetty in 58 mins; biked the 180k course in 4hr 54mins and polished it off with a 3 hr 21 mins marathon. Incredible performance!
Selected times with age group positions
Roger Hastie 9:20 (4th)
Dean Campbell 10:57 (29th)
Peter Bennett 11:37 (51st)
That’s is pretty much the last big race of the year. Time for some R&R over the Christmas holidays….
