ITU Ixtapa

hello all,

I arrived to madrid after a two day trip from ixtapa back to CR then to madrid, the first couple of days a bit jet lag but im now ready to go. It went well in Ixtapa, I finished 2nd behinde canadian Kyle Jones. On race day it was very hot and humid, one of the hottest races ive done. I came out of the water towards the front and had a little break with the other canadian brent mcmahon who finished 3rd and two mexican athletes, we got caught and after a couple of attacks no one manage to get away and we ended up together at T2. Kyle and I ran together until the last mile where he pulled away. This is my 7th career podium finish at an ITU continental cup and ive now move into the top 40 on the ITU ranking.

here is a video made by the tourism ixtapa department from the race weekend, you can watch the finish right around the 3 min mark.
