With the festive season coming to an end we opened the racing account last weekend ahead of what is to be another busy year of competitions.

Down in Melbourne in the 3rd race of the 2xu series Angelo Bonacci opened his 2019 campaign in the sprint distance event and showed all is in good order with training at the moment and the body happily cooperating to place the first stick in the sand for the year.

Adrian Moore recently began working with his new coach Andy White and had a good race in the standard distance finishing in a personal best time over that distance. We look forward to seeing Adrian continue to improve throughout the season.

Kathy Delos Santos is full steam ahead towards Geelong and a windier day on the bike wasn't going to slow her down from the last time she raced in St Kilda finishing 1 minute ahead of her last attempt there. All good signs for her heading into Geelong next month.

Christine Seymour made her return to triathlon post having her little boy Braydon last year. It has been great to see Christine go about things as she has to make triathlon apart of her lifestyle to live a healthy life. A great example to many mums out there.

Down in Lorne Ben Hughes lined up for the Pier to Pub after a hiatus from racing. Ben is on the move towards mid year racing and after only marginally falling short of his goal last year to stamp the Kona ticket, the fact he has stuck around to have another go shows the tail isn't between the legs but he is wanting to go after it again.

Finally up in QLD, Mon Liston blew out some more cobwebs only a week after starting back training after a well earned extended break in the standard distance event in the Triathlon QLD series in Robina. She was happy to see that there was plenty to give even after some time off although if raced well the shorter course events hurt no matter how fit you are.

I could see the thought put into my training plan

"My motivation increased when I could see the thought put into my training plan and the difference it made in my result. The sessions were built for what I needed and I felt strong all day racing. Most of all I could feel Michael cared, so a very big thank you."
