Tri Stilbaai

Tri Stilbaai
Tri Stilbaai being in its 2nd year of existence, some us from Cape Auto Centre Triahtlon Team decided to head down to Stilbaai for an easy weekend away with a triathlon thrown into it.

On the Friday evening Denver, Jana and Jacques decided to take to the water, being low tide the 1,5km swim took us a scary 18mins to swim as the water current took us towards T1 close to the beachfront.

Race morning was cold and wet with a very slight drizzle of rain just cooling down mother nature.

The swim started and finished in a very fast 00:13:11 over the 1000m, into T1 and with the wet conditions it was not easy getting into our mountain biking kit.

The mtb started with a session of road before we turned off route onto some very hard climbing over rocks and felt like it will never end making this a very hard and challenging off road route.

The 33km of MTB was over in 01:20:02 and into T2 to get the running legs working.

The run was shortened to a 8km trail starting with a “river” crossing on canoes before hitting the soft sand where soon after we jumped onto the hard gravel road taking us back to the race village and finish line.

I ran in at 2:12:20 finishing in 6th overall and 5th in our age category.
