We had an early morning start at Rev3 Florida. Conditions were good and we had a great field lined up.

It was an awesome venue for a race and a perfect race morning in Venice Beach, FL.

Finally after 3 months of rehab on my arm, I got my swimming back to where it should be out in the lead group.

Cam Dye lead the swim out and set the bike pace early. Starky later took the lead and held it with an impressive 1:58 bike split. I felt good and settled in for the long flat chase.

Late in the ride I managed break away from the group and get a small lead into transition thanks to the help of Drew Scott.

On the run I managed to pass Eric and keep the series alive. It’s going to be a good battle going into Knoxville.

Billington ran an impressive first half to catch up. Then I bitched him out for constantly clipping my feet. Disclaimer: I race angry.

The Green Machine, race owner Charlie Patten, showing off his impressive stride. Great to see a race director with so much enthusiasm for his events.

This was my final race for the season. I was happy to finish on the podium. I’d like to say a big thanks to all my sponsors. And thanks to David Laskey and Rev3 for the photos!
