Abu Dhabi Triathlon

Glen Ferris took part in the Abu Dhabi Triathlon on his Brompton.

His race timings were:

  • 1.9 km Swim: 41 min 33 sec
  • Transition 1: 4 min 15 sec
  • 85 km Bike:    3 hours 19 min 17 sec
  • Transition 2:  3 min 4 sec
  • 21.8 km Run: 2 hours 26 min 25 sec
  • Total race time: 6 hours 34 min 34 sec

His PB for a 70.3 Triathlon was 6 hours 24 min, this time it took him 10 minutes less to complete with the Brompton.  

Glen said "The cheers from the spectators as I zipped passed on my Brompton were amazing and every participant commented on the bike (most of them thought I was crazy - they couldn’t believe I was using a Brompton as if a Half-Ironman distance triathlon isn’t challenging enough!)

I’ll definitely be considering participating in other events on the Brompton in the future."
