Yep, it has just been one of my favourite times of year again - Noosa Triathlon time. Despite traffic jams causing my shuttle bus to be late, I had an enjoyable time and it was also great to catch up with Tim Mullaly from expressive bikes.com who was supporting Lewis Greenhalgh who was competing (rather than 'demo'ing'). Ok, some pics:

Nice leap for the camera in the run leg
In closing, I just want to say a big thank you to this many people on the run leg who provided a wave, smile or thumbs-up. Brilliant work!
