1500 participants are ready to start.
Media crews are on a fishing boat.
The ocean was flat on the race day.
I was top on the swim with new bulueseventy Helix.
First place overall Wolfgang Gumbel is using also Helix.
After bike transit.
I rode cervelo P4 2010 model and Token T50 carbon wheels.
And LG helmet.
It was very windy so some sponsor banners were broken.
Local brass band is cheering for us.
It was not hot day in Miyako but still windy on the run.
Finish at 6th.
Thank you Alex and his pretty wife Ellen!
