Two 70.3’s in 2 weekends – by Kelly Stokes

When Natalie asked if I’d write a summary of the last 2 weeks of racing, I was happy to help but was unsure what to say. I’m an air traffic controller and have a very sporadic shift pattern. I have to bid for leave a year in advance so I always try to book weekends off and then end up fitting in races around whenever I end up being off. This is what lead, in part to me having 2 70.3 races in a week at the start of June. Saturday 10th...

A bucket-list event – Gareth Pile’s Challenge Roth experience

Symphonic , calming gladiator music welcomed us into T1 2 hours before the start of what they say is the second best thing next to Kona and definitely the best event I have ever experienced …… Challenge Roth 2017. The goose bumps started immediately, and as we checked our bikes, nutrition and transition bags, slowly a massive chunk of the famous Roth crowds (250 000) started building and lining the bridge over the Danau canal.

Jeren Seegers – 2nd overall and 1st 30-34 age group

The season has been a rough one but with huge learning curves. The buildup to Durban was far from fabulous, more missed sessions than ever before, numbers so low that I would win every limbo party and running was more of a chore that hurt than something of a...

A superb come back race for James Welsh – Dbn 70.3

Durban 70.3 Durban in many respects is a world class 70.3 triathlon venue. It has a fantastic bike course which is closed to vehicles with a mostly very smooth tar surface and some suggestions of hills thrown in to keep you honest. The run course is flat on the well manicured promenade but this all comes at a price and that is in dealing with the temperamental ocean. There are two options for the sea swim, either swim from the race...

Just an ordinary mom achieving her dreams – Sonette de Beer

WHAT A PERFECT RACE  DAY! I COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR BETTER. Just being an ordinary  MOM taking up this challenge, WEIGHED HEAVILY ON MY SHOULDERS. Coming from being a couch potato  until my 40th birthday.  I did attempt the Buffalo City 70.3  in January. But did not make the bike cut off. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT! I arrived back home and immediately entered Durban 70.3 But I needed a new plan…  That’s when I decided to join Team...
