We saw what happened to pros who did not ride the full bike course at Shepparton 70.3 in 2011. The lead guys turned early following the pace car (which had turned early prior to a U-Turn to stay out of the riders way) rather than continue to the U-Turn as was supposed to happen. They [...]

It was Australia 1-2 at Ironman 70.3 Kansas over the weekend with Clayton Fettell heading off the 2012 Ironman Australia champion Paul Ambrose.
