20 April 2014
I’m In Heathrow airport on route to Cape Town (via Dubai) on an over night flight. I’m racing the Cape Town WTS race on 27th April. The race is an Olympic Distance triathlon and is live on BBC One Red Button I’ll arrive in Cape Town 6 days prior to the race so there will be plenty of time to recover from the jet lag and the 24hrs door to door travel.
I’m staying in Cape Town centre with Bryan Keane who is also racing. After the race I’ll be moving out to Stellenbosch and I’ll stay with a friend from Ireland, Bobby Behan, who now lives there. I’ll be there for 2 weeks after the race then I’ll travel onto Yokohama WTS race on the 17th May. I’ll then head back to Ireland. Yokohama is the first 2016 Olympic Qualifying race.
I’ve got to board this plane, I’ll update your all post race.
