Now getting settled at the new venue the race organisers decided to include some kids and shorter triathlons on the Saturday before the Nepean Triathlon (The Nepean Enticer Triathlons).
This move increased the participation for the weekend to almost 900, which placed the event 2nd in NSW only to the Forster Ironman.
The Chapman family were now taking turns at winning the Nepean Triathlon with Trent Chapman returning from Europe just in time to take his 2nd title.
Trent’s dad Greg finished his 20th Nepean one of only 6 at the time to have completed every event.
The women were led home by a teenager Melanie Dickson with exceptional cycling ability. Melanie went on to race a number of track cycling events, finishing on the podium a number of times.
