ITU Long Course Worlds

Are racing in 2 hours time. 4km Swim / 120km Bike / 30km Run in Las Vegas.

Are feeling pretty ready for this one, will see what the day brings. Key focus is to work hard in the swim, work on the bike but stay calm and smoke the run.

Should be a lot of fun riding through the desert, previewed the course yesterday and from km's 15 to about 80 feel like going up and down to Hawi twice. Exposed to the wind, gradual climb with rollers. Last 40km of the bike is a gradual uphill with some steep sections so that is were time will be made up or lost.

Thanks to all who have sent messages of support. This is my longest race since Kona in 2010 so looking for a good solid effort and trying to empty the tank just at the right time. May take some risks on the bike to make the AG race catchable on the run, this is Vegas so if there is any where to gamble a little this is it!!

See you all on the flip side - time to go fast, have fun and smile/grimace lots.
