ITU Multisports Festival 2017

Aug 30 2017

by Mike Neill

Human Powered Racing was well represented throughout the week at the Penticton 2017 ITU Mulstisport World Championships Festival. With races taking place from August 18th – 27th, Penticton was definitely the hub of all things multisport.

Over the course of the 9 days we had 17 athletes taking part. There were many highs and lows, but everyone was very privileged to be racing alongside the world’s best. Also adding to the experience was the camaraderie between our team and many of the Bermudian athletes who were also staying at The Bowmont Motel and joined in on a couple of pre race day swims (not to mention the post race dinner and party at Poplar Grove).
