WANAKA is a tough race but picturesque , a real challenge with its bumpy road surface .
Hate to say it but it might be too much for Luke .
Great race though .
NZ south island has some great race experience .

Sorry
My old eyes must be like his legs without salt tabs

I'll still stick to the theme of the post that most "pros" of tricathalon have no idea what it's like in the real world
(Until they are too old and slow and need to get a real job)

I think McKenzie has seen he $$ he can make from running events like island house for really rich guys and it's heaps easier than running after a 5hr bike split.

Goneeeeeeeee.


Shocked Luke bell finished.

It is a hard way to make a living - made harder by the fact that they have to live up the high standards expected by Transitions posters - tough judges  :sleepy:

Well if you want a fully paid holiday Luke got it.

Sadly challenge didn't get value for their money.

I hope they make Luke pay for his airfare and accommodation
