Less hairy in Abu Dhabi. « Stephen Bayliss's Blog


Less hairy in Abu Dhabi.

Before I left for Abu Dhabi I had a pre race hair trim so I am currently looking a bit more race ready:)

Dan and I flew out to Abu Dhabi on Wednesday afternoon from Gran Canaria.  We had a fine journey here and were both very glad to get to our extremely comfortable hotel.  The race organistaion really look after the athletes well at this race.  We have been making the most of the half board too:)

We are here for the Abu Dhabi international triathlon.

The race for me went ok.  I had a fine swim coming out just behind Dan in the front group of the swim with just 1 guy ahead with a lead of about 1min.

Our group was about 15 or so guys which stayed together for much of the 200km bike ride.  Riders gradually started getting dropped from this group.  I lost touch at about 150km,  and rode the rest with 1 other guy.  We were both too far down at the end of the bike to be incontact for a top 10.  I ran ok but not mega fast.  And finished in 13th place.

All in all it was a fine way to start the year.  Next up is Challenge Half Fuertaventura in about 6weeks time.  This is also a great race for people who want to start there European race season with a well organised race in a gerat location.

We are flying back to Gran Canaria tonight and I can’t wait to see Bella and Charlie I have really missed them for these few days we have been away.
