Sam Appleton in Nepean Triathlon draft off…

Local triathlete and Ironman 70.3 specialist Sam Appleton is a confirmed starter in the Atmosphere Nepean Triathlon. Sam joins a number of big names like defending champion Aaron Royle and British triathlete Stuart Hayes battling for a total $76,500 prize pool.

An interesting match up between 70.3 specialist Appleton and ITU Olympic distance specialist Royle. With the Nepean Triathlon being a draft free event it may suit Appleton given his favoured 70.3 events are also draft free. However, Royle is focused on the ITU, draft legal events which the Nepean’s 1km swim, 30km cycle and 10km run is closely suited to.

Only time will tell! It all makes for some exciting racing both amongst the men and women’s fields together with the battle for outright victory between the guys and girls.
