Ironman UK 2012 Bike Photos

Oziemby OziemJul 23rd 2012
Sarah and I travelled up to Bolton this weekend to support Ironman UK. It was a great day, nice weather, some nice scenery and lots of inspirational athletes!

I have picked out some of my favourite photos in this blog post (not necessarily in chronological order), and will upload others to galleries on facebook and flickr (I will put the links in at the end of the blog post).

The two male leaders (Fraser Cartmell and Daniel Halksworth) had a massive lead by the time they reached us for the first time, and were still together on the second lap.

A group of hilarious cheerleeders joined us at the top, much respect because it was really cold when the wind picked up! I don't think there has been so many smiling faces at that point on the course!

The Ironman TV crew were interviewing athletes on the bike, thought the no hands skillz on this guy was very impressive.

TriBlogs & Me
TriBlogs has been my pet project since 2005. It all started as a way for me to track my own training and I ended up sharing with my friends... the rest is history.

I write the code, test the code, debug the code, sing the theme tune... Sarah has joined the team now and she bosses me around on your behalf. If you use the site regularly and love it please help us continue by subscribing or by getting all your friends to visit the site!

On my blog you'll find my experiences attempting to be an athlete of some sort and my photo blogs of races that we visit for inspiration.
