The 2012 Tannum Sands Triathlon Wrap-up

Lloyd was all smiles receiving his new Trek Speed Concept from Matt of M1 Cycles.

"Couldn't go to a better person, makes supporting this event all worth it," Matt said. Lloyd punched the air when his number was drawn out at the prize draw on Millenium Esplanade after the 2012 Tannum Sands Triathlon. Matt helped Lloyd out with a Fit Kit as well, to get the best from his new ride. Lloyd reckons his new Speed Concept will go better than his old $200 'clunker'.
Congrats to all 180 competitors who took part. Local athletes Ben Wriede and Lee-Anne Hellberg, both riding Trek bikes in the bike leg, took out the Men's and Women's races respectively.
Thanks also to all family, friends, supporters, and volunteers. Organisers Wayne - Frenchville Frogs, Doug, Mark, Gert and Jon did a fantastic job; the event ran smoothly in perfect weather.
