Coles Bay Half Ironman Triathlon, here we come;
Next Saturday the might and power of the Hahn Super Dry Team Latitude will be hitting the course of Coles Bay for the Coles Bay Half Ironman Triathlon. Expectations are high for the boys, looking to snag all podium spots, although it may not be so easy. Matty White is relaxing in Thailand as we speak and the great young hope, Justin Brewer hasn’t seen his legs since Busso 8 weeks ago and has done no training.
So it looks like the pressure will be on Tim Berkel, Current Australian 70.3 champion, to bring home the bacon, although he is racing Geelong this weekend which will make it hard for him to back up! But I have faith. Also, lets not look past Dan Robins, another of the young guns set to prove himself next weekend, and Adam Gordon, coming off a second place in the Pro men at the Hell of the West last weekend.
That said, I will have eyes on Murph (michael murphy), he is the BP of the team (the quiet achiever, lol) and he could pull out a win, I reckon he will be out to prove a point against the big names of White and Berkel.
Either way it will be a cracking race with some great talent both young and old racing at Coles Bay in Tasmania.
I am hoping to be able to watch the race, as I am hitting the starting line for the Team Subsidiary; Team Fatitude, in the sprint race and I’m already feeling the pain, compounded by a disastrous return to the bike last night… lol. So chances are I will be non compus to watch much of the half.
I should mention the “fill-in” Chef de Mission, Woodsy, he will be having a crack at the sprint too, he believes he may be inducted into the Team Fatitude hall of Fame, but his times will need to fall substantially to even get a look into the eclusive Team Fatitude Subsidiary!
Our main man, and Chef de Mission, Dr Mitch Anderson, is a late DNS, he decided that the competition was too fierce from the boys in the Team so has decided to sit this one out OK, not exactly a true story, but Ill run with it….
We are all looking very forward to a race and having a few Hahn Super Drys with the Taswegians at Coles Bay!!! Bring it on…
