In the lead up to her first triathlon at Noosa, Subaru rally driver Molly Taylor flew up to the Gold Coast for some race tips from two time olympian Courtney Atkinson. Shame about the weather.
140 riders turned out for the first ever Nerang Gravity Enduro hosted by the Gold Coast MTB club.
Had a great weekend in Toowoomba watching my first MTB Enduro race with Giant AMC and an assortment of hitters. Great fun and a proper MTB educational immersion experience. When we weren’t at the trails we were talking bikes or watching world cup races on youtube. It’s fair to say I was lost for most of the conversations. Good times. Few pics below.
Couple of oldies shot in Northern NSW in Feb this year but since John John Florence is the flavour of the month (well he kind of is every month…) I thought I’d stick ’em up. Love watching him surf even in rubbish waves like these ones. Dead set amazing.
(PS. Click on the last one and it should run as a sequence)
Spent the weekend in Port Macquarie at the Ironman 70.3 race.
Congratulations to all of the crew competing over that distance for the first time and to Clint Kimmins for making the cut for the 70.3 World Championship in Las Vegas next year.
Snuck out for a look at the Tour de Valley cycling time trial event in Currumbin Valley. Plenty of cool bikes and uncool lycra.
Caught up with Surfer/Lifeguard/Tri(hard)athlete Clint ‘Clipper’ Kimmins on his hard earned smoko break from patrolling the flags at Coolangatta beach today. Watching waves roll through the “office” all day must drive these guys nuts. Picked up a copy of the latest Australian Triathlete magazine on the way home. Has a good write up by Clint (and a few of my pics) about his first Ironman race in Cairns.
Winter on the Gold Coast isn’t too tough. Warm water, offshore breezes and sunshine make for some good beach days. Couple of pics of Chris “Ibis” Bennetts taking advantage of the great conditions this week.
Shot some photos for No Excuses Promotions of the boxing pro-am that they put on at Matrix Boxing Gym in Southport.
We’ve had a pretty good winter in the wave dept.
