It was a gnarly swim, single track mountain bike and wild run in Albay with the majestic Mayon volcano as backdrop. Team Dirty Breakfast made it to Albay early to track read and be prepared for the battle. They trained hard, physically and mentally for the challenge.
The swim started in the shores of Lidong in Mayon Rivera. Then off to the mountain bike part which will pass through fire roads, grass lands, and sandy and rocky terrain. Then the run part will be through villages and rice fields which will conclude near the Cagsawa ruins. According to the 2015 men’s pro champion, 25 year old South African Bradley Weiss, whoever finishes first in the bike leg shall control the race. True enough, he came out of the mountain bike part first and he emerged as champion.
Being hardcore mountain bikers, Team Dirty Breakfast dominated in their category and emerged as podium finishers. Lots of training and plenty of good breakfast, the team emerged victorious in this competition. Discipline, science and a coach elevated the team’s effort for glory. A support group, like family and friends (read: supportive partner) boosted the morale of the racers so come race day, everybody was happy and smiling. #goodvibes
