Me and Verzbicas

Banyoles World Cup (Spain)

My first world cup and nearly made the podium, chuffed.

There were a few races on this week, including Windsor Super Series race 2, and Toulouse French GP. I knew that missing those races meant I had to produce the good here in Spain.

Had an average swim then had to work hard and chase the bunch for 15km but feeling great on the bike at the moment so it didn’t seem to take too much out of me.

On to the run I ran through 5km with Verzbicas (1st). Vidal (2nd) and Polyanski (3rd), but felt the pace was a bit too hot for me so dropped back to Bowden. For the second week running I had a good tussle with my fellow Loughbrodian to the line.

Blenheim 2012

Blenheim Triathlon

Just my luck, the Brownlee’s turn up when I was on for my first Super Series podium….

I was actually really good getting the opportunity to toe the line with Jon and Ali. It gives our domestic series so much more hype and prestigue when the world number 1 & 2 turn up.

I had a solid race finishing 3rd. The ‘sisters’ were a good few minutes up the road so had a good battle against Adam ‘billy’ Bowden for the bronze.

I’ve had a good few weeks of good training now, everything is starting to tick.
