Being on the starting line at Urban 2-80-20 in Geelong last weekend, I went in knowing that it could go either way. Having raced only 3 weeks ago at Challenge Wanaka, I was a bit unsure if I hd the extra gears for the shorter distance of the 2.80.20. USM Events had arranged a small, but very strong elite field which included Clayton Fettell and Pete Jacobs on the start list so I knew it was going to be tough!

 

The weather forecast was for a little bit of everything from rain, wind and sun, just like the Danish summer!

When we arrive at race central just before 6am it started to pour with rain and basically didn’t stop. The start of the swim went as expected, there was no one who could follow Clayton and Pete. And I had enough problems with following Leon Griffen, Tim Berkel and Matty White. There was just no power in my arms and I ended up losing 1:15min to Leon’s group, with Clayton and Pete even further up the way.
