My first race is this Saturday in the Desaru Half ironman, the race takes place only 90mins from Singapore by car but is in Malaysia. It's sure to be incredibly hot and after riding in 13°c yesterday with 4 layers of clothing on I'm glad to be leaving winter behind for two weeks.
After the race I head back to Singapore for a few days before getting on a ferry to the Island of Bintan, Indonesia( a short 1hr ride) for the Metaman Triathlon which is a full long distance Triathlon of 3.8km, 180km and 42km. I was on a training camp there two years ago so I know the Island and course, again it will be a super hard race with the extreme conditions. Hopefully I can survive and try and win some of the prize money on offer which is over $140,000USD.
