Hello Dinamic Athletes
I hope you are all well and that all training for 70.3 is well on track. It has been quite a newsy week, with the eexcitementstarting to build as the tri season in SA gets under way!
We send a big shout out to our new athletes Frans Gerber and Etienne Bester…welcome to the team!
HUGELY exciting news is that the ITU World Series is coming to Cape Town!
The event was launched on Wednesday at the Waterfront. Dr Debbie Alexander, President of Triathlon South Africa, announced that the Cape Town race will serve as the second stop of the eight city tour in the WTS series. The event will take place on the weekend of 25 to 27 Aril, 2014 and will be the first time a WTS event will be held on the African continent.
Whilst the event will draw a big field of the top professional triathletes in the world, it will also be a mass participation event, offering age groupers, weekend warriors and even first timers an opportunity to race and finish on the blue carpet! Entries will open on 10 December 2013.
