The team was put together to showcase our new Triathlon race suits available for order this month! Guy Andrews Adventure  mantra is ‘Playoutside’ and we are focused on designing and delivering quality apparel to help you be comfortable while you pursue your outdoor activities.

The team gave valuable feed back on some minor improvements needed for our production models. We will also have cycling, running and lifestyle gear coming soon!

The weekend was a 500m swim, 14km MTB and 7km Trail run on Saturday afternoon at 330pm and Sunday Morning repeating the course at 830am.

Both days were very hot and humid with the team responding in various ways.

Louise Betts former Pro road cyclist only took up off road Tri this season and came away with wins on both days to add to her 3rd at the National Titles and a pair of 1st places at rounds 1 and 2 of the Trex series.

Jodie Willett a National level Cross Country Mountain biker had her first ever Cross Triathlon experience on the weekend and came away with an amazing 2nd place overall women behind #GAAProTeam mate Louise. Jodie was weaker in the water but dominated her favored leg the Mountain Bike and with a running background came charging through on both days. Look out for these two girls!

Our Male team members fared well also.

Dean Cane at 15 years of age is fast becoming a name to remember with a clean sweep of the Trex short course series against adults last year and recently winning the Queensland schools 3000m track and 2000m steeple chase as well as the open mens B grade XC Mountain bike race at the Adare Wild West series. Dean headed off to WA on Sunday to prepare for the next round of the National Cross Country MTB titles where he will race U17 but before he did that Dean turned up for day one of the Sprint Back to Back a dominated the field!

GA former Australian Surf Ironaman Champion and founder of GAA had a solid weekend feeling a little ordinary on day one he conceded 30 seconds in the 40-44 age and was 4th Age grouper over the line behind Tod Horton in the 35-39 Age group and 7th overall. “I stopped in and had an Ice bath at the NHR Clinics recovery area on both run laps” GA said. “I will have to deal with it tomorrow if I want to win”

Day two saw Guy perking up after Womens winner and team mate Louise said “stop being a pussy Guy!”

It must have worked as GA went on the win the all age group wave and complete the same course as day one some 3 plus minutes faster! claiming the 40-44 age group and fastest overall Age grouper and a yet to be confirmed 4th overall against Elites.

Max Neumann Australian Cross Tri champ had a retirement on day one after suffering all week with illness. Maxy turned up to defend his unbeaten winning streak but was not to be. He will be racing the ITU Road tri event in Tassie then the Trex Oceania Champs late Feb.

The team made good use of the NHR recovery Clinic and Compressport gear. Recovery was key to backing up on day two. Look out for NHR at an event near you.
