1.  Chicago will host 2015 ITU World OD Championships.

2.  Steve Goat is nursing some road rash after being taken out during the bike leg at Cairns. Instead of running through the finish chute, Steve was being cared for at Port Douglas hospital. He came down to the finish area later in the evening to reassure everyone he was fine.  Unfinished business in Cairns for Steve.

3.  Former DTC committee member Robbie Andrews also won his age group at IM Cairns and is off to Kona again.  Eight years between drinks for Robbie.

4.  Adele Butler was part of the technical team at IM Cairns.  She was out on the bike keeping a watchful eye out for 12 metre infringements.  There were penalties handed out, but appears the day was mostly clean which is a credit to the tech team & athletes.

5.  If you have family, friends or workmates who wish to “tri”, remember the SBJF Corporate Triathlon is scheduled for Saturday 29 June 2013.  It’s a doable individual or team effort of 300m swim, 10km ride, 3km run and all funds raised go to Royal Flying Doctor Service.  Open to everyone, you can get more info and how to enter here.
