May 5th 2012: What a day! Rough and murky water, plus swimming into the sun made navigation nigh on impossible. The difficult conditions resulted in people’s swim times to ‘blow out’ by 8 to 10 minutes on expectation. For many the swim leg had a greater impact on the rest of the event than anyone could have imagined. Fortunately the rain had cleared and cyclists only had to contend with a windy course! Run conditions weren’t too bad.
As a group we had some great results. We also had some very disappointed athletes.
