A great weekend of results for Sunshine Coast Triathlon Academy / Hybrid Concepts Australia Athletes competing at Xterra Philippines, Queensland Triathlon Series Race # 6 Caloundra Tri and Ironman 70.3 Geelong.
At Xterra Philippines, in warm and humid conditions, Brodie Gardner returned to further his 4th placing from last year. Over a 1.5km Swim, 35km Mt Bike and 9.2km run, Brodie put a great race together to receive his first podium in a Xterra event with a 3rd place. Not a bad effort seen he has been working full time on his business, Intune Sports and Health, and training when he can fit it in. Well done mate and safe travels home.
