St Anthony's 2011

Butt Kicking, Ass Kicking - That seemed to be the consensus of a men's pro field about the race today.  Bevan Docherty summed it up in his Tweet - "Just got my ass kicked at St Anthony's, 9th! You really have 2 specialize in the type of Triathlon u do now days! Drafting or Non drafting!"  I'd put myself in the same lot.  I was happy with my effort.  My fitness level just isn't up to par yet.  I ended up 13th. With 54 men in the field must of us got our "schooled" today.

This was the largest and best field I've seen in the in a long time.  54 men started the race.  Welcome to a non-drafting world cup.  Other notes for the race were a short swim because of wind.  Organizers made a modified 1000 m rectangular course North of transition with a long run to transition.  The regular 1500 m course is Spa Beach South of the course.  This was also the 2nd race in the 5150 series, so I did get some series points.

I guess it was an exciting finish.  After the 5k run turn around, I thought Cameron Dye had it in the bag, but Matt Reed and Filip Ospaly caught him in the finishing shoot.  Here's the results
