Other than the copycat, super-sleek-lycra-triathlon-ski-pants the we had inadvertantly both bought the day before and the fact that our team consisted of one member nursing a 'lets drink as much as we can during the hottest day of the year whilst watching horses' hangover and the other having macheteed (an Africanism similar to a hot knife through butter but with more machoism involved) his way through a Triathlon the day before.... It was possibly one of the funnest races I have ever done.

The scene was set on a wine farm in Somerset West, the weather was guaranteed to be a scorcher and the course consisted of "Mountain Biking", "Trail running" and "swimming" which by the end i had figured out where synonyms for "Ride for a bit and carry your bike through a dam", "see if you can cover every square inch of your body in mud" and "Try and find a belter a white shirt whilst propelling a tube through the water." Epic fun!

But seriously... as there is an option to do one lap or two.... and the fact that you can go at whatever pace you want to, I recommend this for everyone. The next one is on the 18th Feb in Grabouw and looks like it will be a great day!
