Xtreme Terrain Duathlon, 4th

Well, my cross Duathlon season got off to a reasonable start even though I rode pretty poorly on my brand new 29er Trek Superfly. The bike was brilliant.  I was... hmm.... I bit hopeless. There we go. Sometimes you're the statue and sometimes you're the pigeon and today I was all statue on the bike and just went through the motions on the run. That's not to take anything away from the guys that beat me though as they were simply far better on the day and that's that. It was great to see Daffed Hollis win too because he really is a talented off roader with all the right attributes that make a great cross Duathlete. 

It's taken me all week to write this and that's mostly because I came down with a cold the next day after the race and am only just now able to think clearly without being distracted every two seconds by sneezing, coughing or wiping my snout. I've actually done really well avoiding all sorts of illnesses these last few months and I put a lot of that down to the Maxifuel Immunesupport capsules I've been taking. That's not just a plug by the way, I genuinely mean it. I catch colds so easily and since the Maxifuel guys got me taking them I've been pretty cold free until now.

Anyway - Toby Jenkins and his allabouttriathlons team put on a really good show and here are some of the high quality pics from Sussex Sport Photo:
