Well the weather is PERFECT! For a triathlon that is… The Cairns Ironman this Sunday will have perfect conditions for the race. On the cool side and low winds! So a nice fast race. Although to be fair, nit my cup of tea. I’m quite critical of the direction triathlon is taking; faster races and quicker times; that’s not because the athletes are getting so much faster, or the equipment much better, its because organisers want a fast race… That is fine, but it does detract form the basis of triathlon. But never fear, the Tr-Port Long course certainly doesn’t go down that path, its brutal!!! And that’s why the athletes love it. anyway, enough of that.
Why my title? Well there are still a few people complaining about the captain cook highway being closed on Sunday! I only wish that a road closure would ruin my life, but unfortunately I have other things to worry about, so I’m not as lucky as those guys complaining. But like I always say, if i stood on 5the corner and handed out $100.00 bills someone would complain, its in their nature hey!
So instead of complaining about the road closures, make the most of it, and get out and watch the spectacle! Support the event that brings a serious amount of tourists to the region!
PS. Go Matty!! (White that is)
