Phuket LPT – 2010 Round-Up

From what I hear it was treacherous conditions this year with a water-logged course. I’m amazed if anyone made it through the bike course unscathed. But once again the Dragons came home with some fantastic results, Laura Walsh, Kate Rutherford, Mark Weis and Richard Hall to name but a few.
And to all those ‘First Timers’ congrats, your time (whatever it was) is now a PB for next year – so you all have a target to aim for.
Now, I haven’t seen the after party photo’s just yet, but I understand that a few of you were hanging your bums out!!! Sounds like the Dragons were dressed to impress and once again our reputation for racing hard and partying harder remains intact.
Above all, we hope you enjoyed the race and the atmosphere down in Phuket, and to round the year off properly, you should now be signing up for the Dragons Christmas party on Saturday 11-Dec….go-oooon, you know you want to.
