Porirua Grand Traverse 2014

Awesome race! I did the Duathlon with Ricoh from iRide. I had a good start getting straight out front with Brendon Sharratt just behind. I knew Brendon was fast and it didn't help that he was riding this fast course on a cross bike. Thanks Ricoh for an awesome run and Brendon for keeping me on my toes!

Straight into the first climb and I had opened a small gap between me and the main group. I managed to lead the first loop and get straight out into Belmont for the suburban loop. On the next decent climb I had a 15 second lead over Brendon. I managed to extend that gap throughout the race, catching all but one of the triathlon riders. It was awesome to come away with the fastest MTB time of the day and even after several timing and marshal issues with the run, our team still got first place. Had a finishing time of 1:07.24

Woohooo!!
