Ladies podium – congrats girls

Lizzie Orchard – 2.52.14 Jacqui Slack – 2.54.30 Mieko Carey – 3.07.35 Full results – http://www.jtltiming.com/results/phi-x.html     Last weekend I raced Xterra Philippines, this was the 5th year in a row I’ve competed this race and about the 11th time Ben and I have competed in the Philippines, obviously you can see how much we love this place. We have a fantastic relationship with Sunrise Events and when we got the invite to go over and race again its was a no brainer. The way every single athlete gets treated is remarkable its all about the experience and Sunrise Events hit the mark every time.

First out of the water – Xterra Wetsuits

  To be race fit on the 7th February is questionable after all I want to peak in April and November so to be in top form in early Feb is just not going to happen, so I have to suck it up and do what I can do off very limited training. Anyways no excuses I had a ball, raced my little heart and finished a solid second to a very classy Kiwi Lizzie Orchid.

Nothing like a face plant to get the game face on #yougottalaugh

  It was a short trip the aim was to go there race my best, support the race and get home ASAP with as little distraction to my training as possible. I’m actually love training ATM and super excited to get stuck and see what April, May and June will hold for my race performances.

With thanks to the team and facilities at Lake Crakenback resort and spa Ben and Jacqui enjoyed a successful season of racing. Between them both Ben and Jacqui achieved 7 Xterra World tour victories, 3 International triathlon victories, 3 World Championship top 10’s and 14 International triathlon podiums.   As they head back down-under after, spending the winter in the USA and Europe their season is far from over, Ben and Jacqui have scheduled a training camp at Lake Crakenback Resort and Spa so they can finish 2015 with a bang. They will both head to the Victorian Cross Triathlon Championships on the 29th November, hosted by In2Adventure. Ben will complete in a long distance triathlon race in December, and then they plan to see in New Year with the Wicked Wombat MTB race set in the beautiful Snowy Mountains.   Ben and Jacqui put their success down to the training facilities on offer in the Snowy Mountains. “We are so lucky to be involved with Lake Crakenback Resort and spa they offer us everything we need to be well prepared for a successful race, the resort offers fantastic training facilities along with those added extras; great food, massage, gym facilities and a relaxed friendly atmosphere to make training stress free! We couldn’t ask for anything more and thank the staff for their continued support. “   Ben and Jacqui hope to see you down there during the summer and enjoying the serenity of Lake Crackenback.   Ben and Jacqui
