Euston grand prix triathlon - N.S.W. March 2, 2014

A win on the Murray and the State Triathlon Series Championship Title!

Today's triathlon was the SA State Triathlon Series Championship decider and located in the city of Euston in the state of New South Wales approx 500 kms from Adelaide with competitors from Sth Aust, NSW and Victoria competing in their respective age categories. 

The river murray was the venue for the swim leg (A river that runs through NSW, VIC and South Australia) and temperatures today were perfect, and after completing the swim, it was time to head to the transition area for the first of two bike legs!

After a solid first bike leg, it was time to head out for the first of two run legs on a fast and flat course and with a healthy lead in my category, I could enjoy a comfortable run to the finish!

The Euston grand prix triathlon is an official Triathlon South Australia state series event and I was most pleased in securing four state championships during this season!

A most professionally conducted event with a friendly atmosphere and I highly recommend anyone to add this triathlon to your event calendar!

Special thanks to Flinders One Fitness - Flinders University, for their sports scholarship of my 2013/14 multi-sport season.

South Australian Aquathlon Championships - Dec 28, 2013

A tough victory today!

Fierce, adverse conditions greeted all competitors for today's Sam White Memorial Aquathlon, hosting the 2013 age group state aquathlon championships in the resort suburb of Glenelg.

Looking for the best vantage point as we entered the water.. Strong currents and crashing waves making the first of three swim legs most challenging.

After completing the first swim leg it was time to head to the transition area to collect my race shoes for the first of three run legs (one between each swim leg).

My aim on each run leg was simple.. Race hard and distance myself from my opposition and consolidate my lead after each swim. 

By the third and final run leg, I had built up a lead of over five minutes and it was time to finish strong for my third multi sport state championship for season 2013/14! 

Most appreciative thanks to Flinders One Sport at Flinders University for their sponsorship of my 2013/14 multi sport season.

South Australian Sprint Distance Triathlon Championships - Dec 1, 2013

The Franklin Island Triathlon - Victor Harbor, South Australia

Perfect race conditions for all competitors in today's State sprint distance triathlon championships and Australian Team selection race for the age group World Triathlon Championships in Canada in 2014.

After the 750 meter swim leg around Franklin Island, it was time for the 20km bike leg that featured a number of challenging hill climbs which enabled me to extend my lead against my immediate competition.

There were a few light showers during the bike leg which required a touch more concentation when negociating the corners at speed!

Tout est bien, qui finit bien!

After a fast 5km run leg off the bike, it was time to celebrate an age group state championship win and automatic selection to the Australian Triathlon Team for 2014!

Pictured here (in yellow) with fellow state championship winners today!

South Australian Duathlon Championships - Oct 20, 2013

State Champion today!

Extreme heat and testing winds made today's State Duathlon Championships, tough for all age group competitors seeking to qualify for The World Duathlon Championships in Spain in 2014!

A large field of quality competitors assembled for the start

My race plan was to maintain a place in the first third of the lead runners and then push hard on the bike leg and build up a lead before the final run leg.

 Heading into the bike transition area after a challenging 10km run 

The 40km bike leg included two mammoth climbs up the infamous Menglers Hill, and it was at this time that I made my move and attacked, and began to extend my lead which would eventually be over 7 minutes over my immediate competition!

Heading toward the end of the bike leg with just a 5km run to go! 

With a healthy lead in my pocket, I was able to set a comfortable pace for the final run leg and another age group state championship and Australian Team selection!
