Rodney Coast Challenge

I did the Rodney Coast Challenge last weekend, but I forgot to take a camera so I can't show you what it looked like.

It was a short multisport event with 10km run, 30 km road bike, 24 km MTB, and 8km paddle. The run and MTB were on gravel roads (so not that challenging or interesting) and the paddle was on the totally flat Puhoi river. The road bike was probably the most fun of the event, with reasonably flat roads (except for a BIG hill at the end) and a gentle tail wind. The speeds were really high, and I greatly enjoyed my new aerobars.

Results: I ended up 11th in the open men division in a time of 3:49:20 - which I was pretty pleased with. One of the guys I paddle with - James Peacock - got 3rd - which was an awesome result.

I can't wait until next year! :-)
