I am coming to The Championship race because it supports the pro athletes well and so should attract a great race and hopefully the best of the best will be there again this year which makes for exciting racing and is what triathlon is all about, everyone coming together at one place at one time. It also has a great drafting rule for fair racing.

The Championship has lots of special features about it, from the support and great organization that the team offer, to the unique drafting rule to make racing fairer to the great live coverage for people watching all over the world, its an event that will keep building year upon year I believe and start being a big fixture in peoples calenders. The fact that its hosted in such a great location also makes it special, a real top notch sport complex!

I think you always need to have the mind set going into a race that you have prepared everything to be the best you can be on the day and so always aim to go for the win but I have no expectations, just to get out there and beast every last ounce out of me that I have to give and if I cross the line with nothing left then that’s job done!
