Norseman 2015 Race Update

Bianca just buried herself on the run to claw back 21 places but in the end fell just 2 places short of the final ascent and the Black t shirt cut off. I have no words for how I feel and what I have seen her put herself through today. I am absolutely devestated for her but so proud of her for giving it everything she had. She is in agonising pain but in true Bianca Tait fashion she is still running to the white t shirt finish.

Norseman Race Update 3

We are on the run course Bianca ran out of T2 in 183 position. She is running well and taking back places but it’s getting hot and no one is throwing in the towel. Everyone wants a black t shirt.

Norseman 2015 mid race report 2

Let me say that the 5th and last climb to Imingfjel is a nasty one. It is 7km long and unrelenting. At nearly 150km in the legs already I can’t imagine how tough this must be.
