Vernay, Marceau, Ambrose & Neyedli First off the Bike at Ironman Australia Triathlon 2010

By Karl Hayes

Olivier MarceauPatrick Vernay, Olivier Marceau, Paul Ambrose and Scott Neyedli were first of the bikes at Ironman Australia in a time of 4:42. Adrian Cominotto, who was first out of the water, was half a minute behind the leading group. Vernay is looking like being the triathlete to beat again this year after putting just over 7 minutes on Tim Berkel, Paul Barclay, Matt White, Joshua Rix, Adam Holborow and Jemani Francis.

Paul Barclay put in a ride of the day with 4:30:39. Dark horse of the Patrick Vernayevent, Trent Chapman was right on the leaders tails off the bike. He will have to have an unbelievable run to keep up with them.
