What a great way to start a long weekend, with congratulations to ANZA Cycling’s Guillaume Rondy who is the winner in his age group of the Metasprint Series. I have said before that I don’t understand why anybody would want to swim before or run after a bike ride but I take my hat off to anybody who can manage to do so! Enjoy the trophy!
Now, rather than re-writing I will simply copy, so credit to Megan for the hard work of digging out these results.
“Congratulations to everyone who raced in the Metasprint Triathlon, the 3rd and final race in the Metasprint Series for 2015. Once again there were some phenomenal results!

Now despite the Trifactor swim (and I know what is there really to write about a swim?) not a lot happened this week, but a lot is happening from Saturday. The Tour of Friendship kicks off and we have a contingent from ANZA Cycling who have trecked up to Thailand to compete so Don, my trusty co-editor will be producing some daily dispatches from race central, if you want your updates delivered to your inbox don’t forget to follow the blog. You can do that if you’re reading on a PC by clicking the follow link at the bottom of the right hand sidebar.
Apart from that we have an updated race calendar for you which I’ll endeavour to get into the RTI calendar which you can view on the upcoming events page -> here
Tomorrow (you’ll have finished by the time you read this) we have the usual public holiday RTI and then club breakfast at Dimbulah, Chijmes on Saturday. So if you’re riding both days, remember you’ll be more tired than normal on Saturday, and…
Let’s be careful out there!
