Dedication

It’s early morning and I’m on South Beach, Peniscola to watch the start of the 3TCS Triathlon. I’m suitably awed, because the 300 entrants have not only wriggled into wetsuits, sorted their bikes and kit, they are down on the Beach before me.

I imagine it was really hard to film the action in races like this before these were invented. Or it’s Aliens.

The participants have to swim around the back of the Castle and land on North Beach. These are the first to enter the water. They look really keen, alternatively they have just discovered that the water is quite cold right now.

Then they swim ashore to run, undress and collect their bikes, must take pretty good co-ordination.
