Weekend Training Schedule & News
Mooloolaba National Championships
The squad had a very strong performance at Nationals with over 4000 athletes racing. See Coach Foz's race report
Indian National Championships
Pragnya Mohan placed second at the Indian National Championships on Sunday, narrowly missing the win. Pragnya was second off the bike and narrowly missed running down the winner. This is an especially good result for Pragnya considering her crash on her bike which badly interrupted her training.
3 Peaks Challenge
Rob Chignell & Georges Wagner took on the epic 235km ride featuring around 4500m of climbing last Sunday.
The ride featured ascents of the Tawonga Gap, Hotham and Falls Creek climbs and they both finished well under the cutoff.
Georges finished in 9:16hrs and Rob in 10:24hrs.

Portarlington Triathlon this weekend

Ironman OD Ride Saturday
Our Cairns/Port Mac squads have their OD ride this Saturday. It’s a 6weekly exercise aimed at riding over race duration on the bike, rehearsing race intensity and fuelling. So an important session to plan for with intakes and intensity. Looking forward to seeing how it goes.
