On a cool Saturday morning and despite early morning rain 14 duathletes lined up for the 3rd leg in the Dickie’s Duo duathlon series. Veteran running champion Adrian Dale noted that “the 4k run, 8k bike and 6k run favoured a good runner, but there were a number of people I haven’t completed against so I had to wait for the gun to see who was setting the pace”.
Katrina Crumpler led from the start with Dale, John Argyros, Daniel Mitchell and Adam D’Monte hot on her heels in the lead pack. Crumpler maintained a 20 second lead into T1 but staying with a running shoe gave D’Monte and Mitchell a 30 second headstart out of the transition.Read More
