My experience at the event:

The triathlon season is coming to an end.
I entered once again a triathlon around Germiston Lake (my 4th I think in the same area) and I managed to lower my record on the track by 1 good minute. Unfortunately I forgot to start my trusted Garmin 910XT during the chaotic swim start (all the men, at once, from a floating start).
The water was freezing but luckily the waves weren't too crazy...

My swim was decent and I kept under 20 minutes. In the cycling section I felt actually great, but a strong wind prevented me from achieving an even better average.
The final run (this time clockwise instead of usual anticlockwise) was great as well and I managed to finish once again under 1.30.

Some pictures from the race:
