This race was in West Lakes, a little longer than a Sprint triathlon, 800m swim, 25.6km ride and 6km run. I was waiting in the water for my wave start today when the race director called out my name on the loud speaker to ask if I wanted to race Open not AG. Soon after, Kevin Fergusson, multiple time World Champ in Sprint, Olympic and ironman races, said "come on Tony, join in with us like in the good old days!". That was an offer I couldn't refuse! Very honoured to have been called in, so here I was, the only yellow cap among the orange ones. It really made my day! I had a good race, finished 12th overall and 2nd in Age Group, only 20seconds behind the first guy, so close!
