Robyn's E News 28 October 2013

Hi All,

Our juniors were in action at Lake Alexander yesterday morning and as always it was a pleasure to watch them having swim, bike, run fun.  

A big thank you to our junior coordinator Luke Hansen and other key volunteers including Belinda Rowley, John Thyne and Steve Goat. The kids loved it and it’s great to watch their skills develop.

Speaking of skills, you will need some on Sunday when we bring you our mentally & physically stimulating Enduro format. 

With all those transitions to get through, it takes a little added thought to make sure you aren’t heading for the water in your sunglasses!  Tip: Visualise your setup and transitions before race day.
