2018 Western Sydney 70.3

The International Regatta Center at Penrith is renowned for throwing up some serious heat in mid November, and in the weeks leading up to the 2018 event, the forecast was for a mild 24 degrees. ┬áIn the last few days before the race however, the forecast progressively climbed by one degree every day – a beautiful clear race morning eventuated with 24 degrees for the swim and bike ride, but according to my Garmin – Penrith won the heat battle with the mercury hitting 36 degrees and averaging over 30 degrees for the full 21.1 km.

It was fantastic to catch up with the crew from the ATP Sydney days going around the course and swapping a few war stories at the race end.
