A bit of a Gamble…..

Sunday, August 30th, 2009

Joe Gambles is a friend of mine from Australia, who I’ve known for a few years now. We both seemed to start racing the 70.3 events around the same point in time, and last year we finished within 10 seconds of each other at Clearwater …. this year however he has gone on to race […]

This is Nikola. Just got an email from Fraser saying he will race Ironman 70.3 Antwerp on August 2nd. I wanted to keep everybody posted on whats going on… he is enjoying the mountains very much so he is a bit quiet. He still needs to sort out his race schedule for the rest of […]
