Aberfeldy Triathlon 2014

Aberfeldy Triathlon 2014

August 17th saw the 2014 Abefeldy triathlon take place in sunny Perthshire. The weather was a little 'gusty' but for most of the day the rain stayed off and we enjoyed the sunshine.

The 'Lomo Swim' took place on Loch Tay. There was quite a breeze blowing so swimming conditions were a little challenging but not impossible.

The swim started around 7am and the Lomo event team were out on the water at 5am putting the swim course buoys out in location.

Aberfeldy Triathlon 2014 Swim Out
The swim section was quite challenging this year with a persisten wind making the loch quite choppy at times. The current proved to be a challenge for some swimmers but they battled on and only a handfull needed some help from the safety boats.
Aberfeldy Triathlon 2014 Water Exit
There were quite a few competitors spotted competing in our Lomo Triathlon Wetsuit inlcuding one competitor who we loaned a suit when he managed to rip the zip of the rear of his much more expensive suit!

From there the athletes left the beautiful setting of Loch Tay and headed out on the cycle leg which took them over Schiehallion and around Loch Rannoch. The wind didnt let up though and head on winds and frequent gusts made the cycle leg difficult in places.
