I’m so pleased to have had my best result ever in Kona. It was a good but tough, hot day at the office. I didn’t feel as good as I’d hoped on the bike and missed one or two opportunities but I’m so pleased that I improved so much from last year. The swim and run went as planned, I went out on the run with a focus on holding my form and seeing what would happen. The next thing I knew I’d quickly moved through the field and into 4th so I knew it could become a great day for me and I continued to go for it.

I’ll find time to get a more detailed update on my race but for now I wanted to say a very big thank you to all of my supporters. My wife, family and fans.

Of course it wouldn’t be possible without my sponsors: Boardman Bikes; Urban Hotel Group; BPM-Sport.com; TYR Sport; F2P; Shotz Nutrition; Lazer Helmets; Rudy Project Eyewear; Xlab; Gaerne; ISM Saddles; Healthwise Active Travel, Computrainer and Alaska Milk.

Thanks everyone, PJ
