Race Report: Laura Siddall Challenge Wanaka

Challenge Wanaka is just an amazing event. This year the event for the Pros was raced over the half distance, so it was a bit of an unknown going into the race, having previously raced the full distance the past three years. I knew with Scody team mate Annabel Luxford in the field, and also Amelia Watkinson I'd have my work cut out. It was a typical Wanaka day weather wise, but perhaps not with quite as much wind as normal, or as I was hoping for. My swim wasn't great. I feel I've been working hard on my swim but haven't yet been able to convert it into a race performance, so I lost a fair bit of time to Annabel in the swim, coming out five minutes down. However at the time I wasn't too aware of the relative performance, and just once out of the water focused on riding my bike to my ability.


That had always been the main focus for the race. I'm pretty happy with how the bike went. I love this course and hoped my knowledge and experience of the past few years would be an advantage. I found I was moving through the field quite well and pulling back time on Annabel, managing to catch her with about 15km to go. We came into T2 together and started the run side by side, exchanging the lead over the first 2-3km, but then Annabel moved ahead and started pulling away. Again I was hoping that my knowledge of the run course, which is 70-80% on tracks / trails, would be an advantage. I think Annabel got to about 45seconds ahead of me but then her lead seemed to hover around that time. With 10km to go I could see Annabel up the road and worked hard to start reeling her in again. I was chipping away at the lead and I still felt strong running, but just didn't have enough of a change of pace to catch her.


Coming down the main street in town into the finish, with all the support was amazing, and I was split between wanting to acknowledge and thank all the supporters, yet was still chasing Annabel with that chance of maybe catching her on before the finish. But Annabel is a world class athlete and one of the very best in the sport over the half distance, so even if I'd come up along side her, I know she'd have dug deep and been hard to beat. In the end it was 11seconds between us. It's always an honour to stand on the podium in a race, and particularly when it's in the company of an athlete like Annabel and even better with it being a Scody 1-2! Whilst I of course wanted the win, I'm very proud of how I raced and have taken some big positives and good learning away from it, with another great experience and opportunity banked. It was fantastic to have the Scody 1-2, and to come second to an athlete of Annabel's calibre, over the half distance, is something I've got to be pretty happy with. Oh and my new 2018 Scody kit was awesome!! Release the bubbles! 

Race Report: Ryan Fisher Ironman 70.3 Geelong

2018 was always planned to be kicked off at Ironman 70.3 Geelong. It's not all that often that I get to race in Australia and it's one of the races I've always wanted to test myself over because of the tough course. It had been a long 4 months since the last time I stood on the start line so I was pretty excited to fly south and see what kind of shape I was in against a few of the top half Ironman athletes.

I got off the sand and into the water smoothly before swimming clear of the group with Josh Amberger. Conditions couldn't have been better especially for a place known to be unpredictable and blow up some pretty violent winds from time to time.

Exiting the water with a gap Josh and I were soon joined by Sam Appleton just a few kilometres into the bike course. Only fresh into my transition to half Ironman racing this is the portion of the race I'm most intrigued by to test myself against some of the 'bigger' boys in the sport and concentrate on my nutrition intake. The ride was unforgiving from the mount line until the the conclusion of the 90km bike which is exactly what I was hoping for to get a taste of what will indevitably come later in the year. We rode as a trio until the 65km mark where we were chased down by a small group lead by Lachie Kirin who went on to break the bike course record. To date it was my best 90km power in a race at 306 Watts (66kg) so I got what I asked for in that regard!

Coming from ITU where transition can be key I managed to flick on my ASICS run boots, grab my lunchbox of gels and get on my way quickly in pursuit of Appo who was first onto the run course. Running out at a much slower pace than what I'm use to in shorter racing I felt comfortable and was able to settle into my rythym... unfortunately it only lasted for a short period before the ebbs and flows of fatigue, tightness and the mental games began. Appo was off and I was left to play cat and mouse with Bergs (Amberger) multiple times dropping one another by 15/20sec margins until the 13km marker where I came unstuck once and for all. With the survival button activated I was on autopilot for my way to the finish line and continued to focus on getting my nutrition down and keep relaxed with a comfortable gap back to fourth place. A podium is never a bad day and I definitely learnt a lot more than I even anticipated.

A few aches and pains later it's nice to know where I am early on in the season and plenty of gas on the fire now to step myself up a level for the next one. Escape Surf City - Huntington Beach, California.
