Brittas Bay Blitz

Both Derrick and Garrett continued their build towards Ironman Florida in November with a third and fourth placing respectively at the Sporting Proud Brittas Bay Triathlon. This was an olympic distance tri with a 1.5km swim, 40km bike and 10km run.
Although much shorter than the Ironman distance it is still a great training session. Thankfully the weather held up and the swim went ahead, 2 of the previous 3 years the swim has had to be cancelled. A good bike and run course with a couple of rollers on the coast road seemed to sap some legs leading to a well strung out field.
The lads tried chasing down the two lead men but unfortunately just could not do it clocking 2hr32 for Derrick and 2hr34 for Garrett.
With nine weeks left to Florida the really big stuff starts now with the final build up.
