Virgin Active London Triathlon

Virgin Active London Triathlon – Final race of the Super Series, big disappointment, after emerging from the swim in 21st place, I missed the lead bike group by 7 seconds! I worked harder than ever on the bike, but the leaders stayed-away and increased their advantage.

I increased my speed on every lap of the 4-lap run course, recording the fastest time on the final lap, with the 4th fastest run overall to finish in 11th place. Ritchie Nicholls who finished 4 places behind me in Geneva had a super race and won the event.
I finished 7th overall in the Super series after completing all five races and disappointed not to make the top three after a 5th place in Blenheim and 4th at Windsor – penalties at Strathclyde and Canary Wharf let me down, but I have learnt a lot in my first season!
