Today I had another opportunity to race with a professional triathlete. Matty White, pro Ironman competitor and Adelaide's own was competing in the final race of the JT cycles Triathlon series.
Triathlon allows people of all abilities to compete side by side with people from elite to first timers....No egos (well they might be put away for the day), and no requirement for the high-end equipment (although it does help and nice to have).
Sure I suffer severe cases of bike envy (like any keen cyclist) but the I continue to see people getting out there with everything from the daughters BMX (yes it was pink and no a girl wasn't riding it...Dont ask not sure what was going on there), to the latest Tri/TT machines.
Today I finished in the top 20 with a Pro (who obviously finished number 1). How many other sports can you do that in?
