Cool spot in the world that’s for sure from what I briefly saw.
If only I had that extra day that was taken from me due to missing a connecting flight and then having to be re directed half way around America after spending an unexpected night in Miami!
Triathlon, a fancy word for shit happens as my coach often refers to it. Rings true every now and again especially when you roll down to transition and hear your back tire deflating with 40mins until race start!!
How quick can you change a rear flat tire under pressure?
Generally things come in threes. What’s next?!
Oh my carry on bag got left behind and I only noticed once everything was being unloaded at Bermuda airport! Surely that’s the last?
Anyway, Bermuda dished up one sweet brutal Standard Distance Course. The famous Corkscrew Hill 10x which had a 20 percent gradient at its steepest point and went for around 200m. Add to that another brutal short punchy climb on the run done four times! It even had a sweet dive into the ocean for a race start which felt like I was launching off the 10m platform! Ok it wasn’t that high but I don’t do heights..
My day was solid and another step in the right direction. I rounded out the day in 9th satisfied though still definitely searching for more! It will come. Patience is a virtue, which I vaguely remember a primary school teaching a young eager Ryan many years ago!!
As they say the show must go on and I’m off to SAN Diego for the next 10 days before heading to Yokohama in Japan for the next round of the World Series.
