Website of the Week
Uli sent us through this weeks website. Runnersweb.com is a great resource for all things about running. They have articles on any thing you can think of. It’s very cool.

Product Review Centre
Stuart Staples sent us through his book, Not Normal Behavior. It’s a great story into his first Ironman experience. It’s a good book to give to your partner or someone who doesn’t understand our crazy sport! Get in on our Amazon store.

Age Grouper of the week
Jonathan Scott was having a good day in Port Macquarie when his cassette on his rear wheel broke at the 90km mark. Instead of calling it a day, which would have been fair enough, he started walking. An hour and a half later he found some mechanics who fixed his bike. After that he managed to run his PB IM marathon time! Well done Jonathan. Thanks Lauren for the recommendation.

High 5 Riding in Traffic
1. Do not give motorists any credit for having a brain!
2. When coming past/into intersections or roundabouts get eye contact with potential dangerous drivers.
3. Overtake cars on the inside with extreme caution.
4. Wear bright clothing. Even if it looks silly, you will be seen!
5. Don’t bunch ride in busy traffic, it’s to dangerous.

Andy Potts Interview

California 70.3 winner, Andy Potts, is on the show this week. We spend time looking into his history in swimming, how he made the transition into tri, how he trains, his olympic experience and if he will ever be an Ironman. It’s a fantastic interview, Andy’s a great guy!

Age Grouper of the week

Daniel Francis finish the race in 12:14. He had a swim time of 108:08, his bike time: 602.07 and he ran: 4:49.42. While he had a good day at the office there’s another reason we picked him for age grouper of the week. The father of four managed to raise more than $700,000 for the two charities the race supported. That’s amazing!

Age Grouper of the week
Mac, Bevan loved his first name, Brown managed to come in 16th at California 70.3 last week. While he had a slow swim, 31.55, he had backed it up by biking and running like crazy. John thinks Mac could be someone to look out for in future. Mac, you are our Age Grouper of the Week!
