Beijing International Triathlon

After my race in Edmonton, I headed to Mont Tremblant to watch the 70.3 World Championships and to pick up a very special parcel. I received my very first Felt IA time trial bike with thanks of course to Felt and also SRAM, who did the build with sram red 22! A few days later, Josh and I were headed to Beijing to compete in the Beijing International Triathlon which was being held in the Fengtai district. After a fairly choppy swim, we got to ride on some of the smoothest hot mix I have ever ridden, although the bike course was certainly a challenging one with a considerable amount of climbing and a tricky descent! The 40km bike was followed by a gruelling 10km run which included over 600 stairs. It was a great experience and it was such an honour to be invited to to such a professional race, I hope to be back!
