Changsha International Triathlon: My first time racing in China

Daniel Clarke shares his experience racing at the Changsha International Triathlon in China

— by Daniel Clarke

On Sunday I raced the Changsha International Triathlon. This was a first year event and it was my first time racing in China. Other males on the start line included Craig Alexander, Max Neumann, Jesper Svensson, Timothy Winslow, Andrew Bolton, Frank Sorbara, among others.  (A super strong female field too that included Lauren Goss, Imogen Simmonds, Kelsey Withrow, Kerry Morris, Laurel Wassner, Jenny Fletcher, and Annie Thoren)

I was really happy with my race. I knew I’d be back coming out of the swim but I wanted to lay down a really strong bike, and then deal with the run when I got there.  I felt like I did that, and finished in 6th. Crowie won, followed by Max, and then Jesper.  On the female side, Lauren won, Kelsey 2nd, and Kerry 3rd.
