Katrine, Nicole, Sam and Andy from Shanghai combined a trip to Vietnam to do the Danang Ironman 70.3 with a Velo Vietnam tour of the Central Highlands. After winning her IM category hands down (and beating some of the pros), Katrine had no issues backing up with a few hundred kilometres and a few thousand metres of climbing in the following days. Kudos.
Sam, who recorded some amazing images along our three day route with his GoPro, has kindly let us use them for this blog. A big thanks from Velo Vietnam, and looking forward to riding with you all again soon.
Ironman done and dusted. Now put your things in the van and let’s ride.
After a stop for some organic arabica in Hoi An, we head out through the old town.
