We were lucky enough to have a dinner with Chris "Macca" McCormack on the night of the Ride for Roy. After we all made a few too many trips to the buffet bar (and bar itself!), Macca treated us to hugely entertaining stories of his triathlon career, together with lots of triathlon tips and tricks.
MICHELLE DILLON CAMP (78)
Two time Olympian (and 220 Coach of the Year) Michelle Dillon was kind enough to come over for a training camp weekend for TriDubai (together with fellow Team Dillon coach, Perry Agass). What a weekend! Work those glutes! Little punches, little punches...
The Abu Dhabi triathlon is the biggest race of the year around our neck of the woods - and we had just taken delivery of our brand spanking new trisuits, so club members were visibly out in force!
The Saturday sea swim is the main TriDubai session of the week - and we are now regularly getting 40+ people taking part. For only a couple of months of the year we get to wear wetsuits - its too hot the rest of the time!
A low key trial race was put on at the Jebel Ali Hotel at the end of Jan - the first in this fantastic location for a number of years. It was sprint distance and the run course included a portion along the sandy beach: hard work!
TriDubai's very first training camp took place in and around the beautiful mountainous resort of the Hatta Fort Hotel in the middle of January 2013. What did we learn? A LOT!
We were lucky enough to be able to go to the Dubai Offshore Sailing Club for our Saturday morning swim - and had a great turn out. It was a hard session, but (we hope!) enjoyed by all!
