    I was at Salford Aquathlon the other night and heard that Rivington may be turned into a duathlon as the water is full of scum? Anyone else heard this? I cant get on my email at the moment so don’t know if ive been sent anything?
  • Did the Rivington race on Sunday, wow it was hard! I managed to put a decent swim (by my standards) in, took me 35 mins and I was taking it real easy so im pleased with that. The bike leg was unbelievable, it was nearly all hills and road surface was appalling in places, really took it out of me haha, by the time I had entered T2 I was in pieces! The run was really hard as I was a spent man by then, and quite a bit of it is off road track. Did a total time of around 3 hrs I think (we didn’t have timing chips so im having to go off spectators watches!). Man that’s a hard course, makes London and Windsor look like a piece of cake! Bike course is good training for anyone that’s going to attempt Ironman UK 70.3 though!
