The Olympic regatta centre will play host to the Western Sydney Ironman 70.3 for the first time this year. Currently the weather forecast is for a hot, hot day. Heres a few pics from rego and bike check in to set the mood.
Rego had no queues and lots of shade.
Expo seemed a little light on,probably due to athletes wanting to saty out of the heat.
The swim course, conveniently marked out with lane ropes.
A sell out field months in advance
Met this friendly guy in transition.
Nice legs for an older chap!
I hope Dave has some race wheels otherwise the other guys in his age group are gunna get smashed by a bloke on training wheels and Gatorskins.
Quite a setup.
More square than round?
Gotta love some pro athlete jury-rigging.
A low tech solution for high tech problems
Lisa Marangon, as always, looking like she is trying to also take out the "show and shine".
Ched Towns would be proud.
Para triathletes should relish this course.
Back with more tomorrow if I dont expire in the West Sydney heat.
