Recently Alex Price caught up with NSWIS and Australian Traithlete Aaron Royle in Vitoria Spain. Aaron is one of the rising stars currently in training as a member of the NSWIS squad in Vitoria Spain and has had some great results at this stage of his career. Enjoy the interview.
Regular Trizone contributor Alex Price is in Vitoria, Spain with the NSWIS and VIS teams as their physiotherapist. At the end of his contract in Spain Alex moves to Aix Les Bains to take up a role as the Australian Team physiotherapist, in their lead up to the world champs in Beijing. In addition to being a qualified physiotherapist Alex is also a very handy open grade triathlete when he isn't injured as he had been for the first few months of this year. Here we catch up with Alex and get an insight in to what the training camp is like.
The 2011 Jervis Bay Triathlon Festival is on this weekend and whilst the men's open field is missing 2 or 3 bigger names we will still see Pete Jacobs, Ollie Whistler, Adam Holborrow and a handful of other potential podium finishers racing. The women's open race has a strong field showcasing some of our top long course triathletes. Nicole Ward, Michelle Wu, newcomers Madeleine Oldfield and Matilda Raynolds, Jacinta Worland and Vickie Wilkinson sees a strong field. Last year's female winner, Carrie Lester was a late entry but has since pulled out due to illness. We also take a look at two of triathlon's past greats who are racing this weekend also.
Round four of the triseries is on this weekend in Nowra. Round four sees the Olympic distance event return. Winner of the Olympic distance race in round two at Huskisson, Michael Fox is back to defend his title. Michael raced last weekend in Melbourne after a break during the Xmas season. On the microphone this weekend calling the race is Alex Price. Alex is usually racing in the men's pro division in major races so it will be great to have Alex with his knowledge of the athletes and the sport calling the events on Sunday.
