First race of the season was an important one for me. It was the race which would set the tone for the rest of the season. Warming up for the swim I knew it was going to be a fast one. I managed to come out of the water first with second right on my tail. I went through transition smoothly and started the bike leg, I managed to stay in the first position for a while until I was over taken by a Namibian monster. Riding into transition second I knew I had a lot of work to do on the run. I managed to close the gap significantly however it was not enough to do the job. I managed a solid second place and a good starting position for the next race in the series.
