Race 1: Duathlon Result 4th

In contention for the whole race but just not firing on all cylinders yet one might say. Being an honest athlete Mairtin will tell it like it is…. just not there yet. Training has being going great for the Gort native this winter and after an impressive 4mile victory in his local road running race he was expecting a podium. The run started quick and the pace was hot from the off. Mairtin lost a little time in T1 which left him chasing on the bike but promising signs of the fitness are there just racing legs needed now.
