2017 once again saw some of the athletes from Absolute Tri travel to Italy to do some races for our Italian partners and friends. This is something the athletes love to do, race and spend time with some good friends from Italy and build lasting friendships. Here are some kind words from the Coach and Team manager from Italy
This year 2017, Azzurra Triathlon Team took home some great team results in the Italian Grand Prix series. After the three races, starting off with the first race in Sapri, where we raced the finals last year with Kelton Aldridge, Nixie Turner and Bethan Hinnett and continuing with the second race in Cesenatico in September this time with Jimmy Kershaw, Kelton Aldridge, Nixie Turner who took home the prize for best bike split in the womens race. Finishing the series in the beautiful town of Mondello just outside Palermo in Sicily with Jimmy just off the podium in 4th place and where both Nixie and Kelton had their best results. We were delighted with our 4th place Male team results and 8th place team female results. Many thanks to Jimmy, Nixie and Kelton for racing under the Azzurra Triathlon Team flag and we are looking forward to the 2018 Grand Prix series, where there will be a modified race format and other surprises !!!!
