Last weekend at Geelong 70.3 and 5150 .
With a start list of over 20+ people racing it was HOT & BLOWING GALE with temperatures starting in the morning at 28-30degrees and reaching 37degrees by 9.30am it was looking to be a battle. A HUGE CONGRATS to the Tribal Crew who raced with plenty of guts and determination. Casey Munro backing up from Challenge Melbourne race exceptionally well placing 6th. Lachie Kerin backing up from the heat of Challenge Melbourne was still a little cooked and was unable to continue after the ride. More great racing in the tough conditions from first time 70.3 Ashleigh Cole smiling her way through the course along with Torty Howard. Big Hitters Papa Cuzzupe and Johnny Meagher were leading from the swim and put in a great performance. Pete Lockyer, Jean Guney, Peter Green, Tracey Curran, Andrew Mellett, Katie Dick and Louise Reside were also out their giving it everything. When brutal conditions are thrown into the mix just getting the job done is the main goal and times become irrelevant. Once again massive congrats to all those who raced and a big thanks to the great Tribal Supporters.
