Whangamata AR. Enjoyed the race. Everything went fairly smoothly, which was quite surprising given I had a MOH notifiable disease and how tired I felt leading into it. Ikon tires were a terrible choice. Could hardly move the wheels during the latter part of the bike stage. Good thing there was not much biking.
Looks like Tiki Tour saved a bit of time by ditching their kayaks at the crossing point, rather than the TA (CP91). Still a bit pissed about this as it looked like a breach of the rules. Splits indicate they saved 5:36... we lost the race by 4:47.... :-(. Hopefully I will get over it soon.
