Triathlon! - They're Off ...

Yesterday saw the 4th edition of the Roquebrune Cap Martin - Gorbio Triathlon. First, more than 100 competitors register in Gorbio village, then they ride 7 kilometres down the valley to the sea where they leave their bikes, don their wetsuits and at 09h.00 are ready for the start of the race in the bay of Solenzara.

They're off!


Hier a eu lieu la 4e édition du Triathlon Roquebrune Cap Martin -  Gorbio. Dans un premier temps, plus de 100 concurrents se sont inscrits à Gorbio, puis ils ont descendu les 7 km de la vallée vers la mer où ils ont laissé leurs vélos, enfilé leurs combinaisons pour être prêts à 9h.00  pour le départ de la course dans la baie du Solenzara.

Ils sont partis! 


  1. Great action shots!!

    Greetings from StavangerDailyPhoto.com

  2. Great shots, I love the colors.

  3. Wow! I did not know that Gorbio got its own Triathlon. I used to do that sport some 25 years ago and watched Menton and Nice Triathlons in the past. Where is the running taking place, up in Gorbio, or down here at the seaside?

  4. Boyfromthebeach, it starts at Roquebrune - the swim, then they bike up to Gorbio, then they run around the hills and finish back in the village.

  5. Triathlon! - They're Off ...
    spell check

  6. Thanks for the spelling error - I didn't notice I'd typed that incorrectly! Too easy to do late a tnight and early in the morning. Appreciate your telling me.

  7. This looks like some kind of mass insanity. Evidently blue is not limited to boys and pink to girls.

  8. That first shot is totally wonderful - really tells the story. And I, too, love the pink swim caps.

  9. It reminds me of an ocean swimming race I watched a few years back at Bondi Beach. The sea was white with the splashing from the contestants. Very impressive.
