Brown prepares for Cairns Ironman - Well I'm now on taper mode as I prepare for the Cairns Airport Ironman this coming Sunday.

Weather conditions here are much warmer than New Zealand and should be a warm 28c on race day with a chance of rain. Last year I finished 2nd after leading until just over half way onto the run leg so hopefully I can have another strong race here again. It's a strong field filled mostly with Australians with 2 x World Champion Chris Mccormack back again. The press conference is always fun as the organisers bring in the Cairns Zoo to show off some of the local animals which hopefully we won't see on race day!The race starts at 7:25am(AUST EST Time) and can be seen on www.ironman.com.
