Byron Bay Tri 2014

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I am a French triathlete in Australia for 6 months. I am thinking about racing the Byron Bay Tri (Olympic distance) in May.

Do you guys have any feedback about this race? Is the swimming in the Pacific ok? the bike course? anything I should know...

 

Thank you by advance. :smile1:

 

Simon

Do it.

The swim is OK, usually wet suit too.

Bike course isn't exactly smooth & is a few kms short, but it's a good day and a big party after if you like that kind of thing.

Did it last year and back again this year. Great race love the Saturday arvo start. Highly recommend this one.

Great race, highly recommend. Ocean swim is wetsuit, ride is undulating at parts and whilst not challenging still enjoyable - despite the surface - and the run is flat as a tack.

 

Attraction of the event is it its relaxed approach and cruisy late start.

Awesome race and awesome atmosphere for what is traditionally the last race of the season (not that we really have a triathlon season anymore). Ocean swim, maybe a bit of swell, essentially a point-to-point swim. Ride is only about 36km (usually), out and back single lap course. Roads are rough in places and a few little rolling hills. Run is just a multi lap affair through the streets, dead flat.

 

Starts at midday on Saturday and then you can hit the pub for presentations and shenanigans on Saturday night.
