Amazing performance.  Top 3 all under 8 also.

Anyone know the story on the Roth course?  Why it's so fast ?

I did this race over the weekend - Frodo was finished before I started running!!

The course is fast because;


Swim; in a canal so sighting is easy and no current or tide

Bike; not flat but rolling.  on the day conditions were perfect so played into the strong cyclists hands.  Not technical at all so you can keep the hammer down from start to finish.  I didn't touch my brakes in the whole race.

Run; There are a couple of significant ramps in the run - maybe 200m each.  I guess you get to run down them too but they hurt.  It was a warm day but not too hot - 25 degrees so manageable with lots of aid stations.

Finally the race is incredibly supported - you are continually and enthusiastically encouraged on the run (and bike too) and if you walk they will make you run (in a good way).

7:36 is a mind blowing time despite all that!
