Husky Triathlon Festival

241 – Husky Triathlon Festival – Gerard McDermott

I recently was able to talk with a great person from Australia about a non-branded 70.3 distance race.  This race is the Husky Triathlon Ultimate Distance.  This race was won by the infamous Craig Alexander and is a wonderful smaller race that has a unique venue.  Beginning in the ocean, then a 3x30km bike ride, then solid run course of just over 700ft of gain, this makes for a great course.  Gerard is a huge fan of the show and loved sharing his experience.  He mentions how some equipment changes could have led to a better race but didn’t stop him from putting down a solid time.  This was Gerard’s first time to get on the podium and talks about this moment in detail.  Thanks for coming on the show Gerard, good luck in May!
