Dave Downer – Taupo 70.5

Kapiti Cycling Club stalwart Dave Downer went over to the dark side on Saturday competing in the Taupo Half Ironman.

He exited the swim in 35th position but stormed to first on the bike with a bike split of 2.35, no surprise there based on his recent cycling form.  He then ran a very credible 1.43.55 half marathon to hold onto second in the 50-year division with a time of 5.05.

Many congratulations from your cycling buddies Dave
