Cummings wins at Toscana, Contador blasts past ban: Daily News Digest
Dedication to the cause on view here, with pro triathlete Lachie Kerin using a city bike to complete the Challenge Iskandar Puteri in Malaysia.
Pro tip – When there’s a will there’s a way. Unfortunately just under 60k into the bike at @challengeiskandarputeri I managed to snap my steerer meaning my handlebars, frame and fork were no longer together. Luckily for me, I was able to muster a city bike and get the last 32ish km done before making a lot of mates on a nice jog/stroll in skin melting heat. The city bike, despite it’s top speed of about 18km/hr and no water bottle holder (not ideal for 2hr in asian heat), was actually pretty damn fun albeit not ideal. It made for a looooong day but and epic memory and one I won’t forget soon! Thank you to Challenge for having me and I can’t wait to come back next year! Congrats to @mitchrobins21 @frreddie @cambrown72 @baldwin_nick on great races and a fun couple of days ???? #triathlon #cycling #tri365 #ironmannews
