The weekend saw a string of strong performances from MEC athletes from Sprint to Long Course Triathlon.
Bass Coast Cycle Challenge
Well underway into her Ultraman 2017 campaign, Leanne Keating took to the hills of the Bass Coast for the 121km event. Leanne continues to build and improve with her epic challenge ahead in May next year.
Left Bank Triathlon
Backing up from last weeks Olympic Distance at Rottnest, Sam Janssen turned on the pace again in the annual Left Bank Sprint Triathlon. With the distances just about as short as you can get in a 400m swim, 19.5k ride and 4k run Sam again showed consistent training get results with a second place. Well done Sam
With 3 Individual racers and 1 athlete in a team event, MEC finished the weekend well with a strong day at Challenge Shepparton.
Les Toth started working with his coach just on 12months ago now and at that point committed to going sub 5 at Shepp 2016. Much work had gone into a very consistent lead in and despite having a mishap part way through the swim which lost him a few minutes, Les had the piece of mind to keep calm and steer himself to a 4hr 58min result. Some well earned unstructured time now for Les, well done.
Georgia Stott made her return to professional racing with her first race since February this year. After a solid week in preparation for Busselton Ironman Georgia strung together a strong swim/bike/run to take 5th in the professional field.
Naomi Wood followed up her 1st podium last week with another in the longer distance format. Picking up bronchitis during the week wasn't ideal however getting through the day for more racing experience was the goal. A very well controlled and measured day got Naomi 3rd place in her category.
Angelo Bonacci was the cyclist in his team for the event and rode a strong 2hr25min 90k ahead of his race at the Off Road World Champs at Lake Crackenback next weekend.
