Capital Winter Sports Fest

Postby yyeric » Wed Jun 01, 2011 6:03 pm

Looks like a series of very exciting events at the Capital Winter Sports Fest on 27th and 28th August.

1. Capital Mountain Bike 10k Time Trial
2. Capital run 10k
3. Duathlon - 5K run/30K bike /2.5K run
4. Capital Cycling - 50km Road Race

I might do the Duathlon this time, considering I did the 10k run on the summer version of the sports fest.

Sounds awesome. I am tossing up between the road race and the duathlon. DId a 16km run around Mt Ainslie and up Mt Majura yesterday and felt good. School organised race and I defended my title from last year. Still got some pace with little muscle fitness.

Yeah. The race was part of our school walkathon which our p&c organised. Walkathon is 12kms. The guy who beat me in the senior x-country was 3rd behind our school champion triathlete staff member (world biathlon champ). A good hilly climb which suits my strengths.

Unfortunately, though, as I found out at the Aust Championship Duathlon in Canberra 2 years ago, triathlons and duathlons dont have hills.

I'm in for the Duathlon. I was surprised at the distances as the long ones are usually 10k/40k/5k. It will be a fast race that would probably justify racing flats and cage pedals.

Cheers Eric - I'll report back.

I've spent the day getting the bike into the box and walking around in circles hoping I've not forgotten anything. Fly out tomorrow at 7:30am and arrive to 27 degrees!

Had to leave Cairns yesterday having spent the week there - 27 degrees and blue skies all week. Saw the set up for the tri at the waterside - looked great and some nice kit on show.

Ended up signing up the 50km road race. it all comes down to cheaper entry fee than the duathlon.

Having missed the Summer version, hope this will be a fun one.

I'm doing the road race as well, online entries close at 11:45pm tonight so anyone thinking about entering should do it today (otherwise it's $44 instead of $27.50). I like the idea of racing without any significant hills :D
