Andy Blair, Australian Marathon National Champion, recently headed to France to contest the Marathon World Championships.
It’s fair to say that Andy didn’t have quite the race he was dreaming of; his Australian team mate, Jongewaard, was sidelined with broken ribs, the conditions were abysmal and nothing really went to plan out on course. After rolling in 72nd place, Blairy will be more hungry than ever for next year. [private]
Andy’s form is unquestionably good – the Gu On The Go team (of which he is a member) just won the Scott 24hr overall, with Blair setting the fastest laps of the race. Andy is heading to WA shortly too, to defend his crown at the Cape to Cape, and soon after he’ll be looking to snatch the overall Real Insurance XCM victory from Shaun Lewis at the Highland Fling in NSW.
So grab a cuppa and biscuit and have a listen to how it all went down in the slop of Ornans, France. [/private]
