Today the Gravelly Beach veteran braved mild temperatures, sun and stunning scenery to grind out an impressive 62km. Old, fat and overweight the veteran rode the first 25k at over 30kph.
Such was the speed and ferocity with which the veteran attacked deviot road that he passed the local mail contractor and Bob Jones tractor. Heads turned and cow's mooed as the veteran sped past the paper beach turn off. Adolf the German shepherd who lives at the house on the corner - the one that sells the figs was unusually quiet as the veteran sped past.
Gulliver, the smack talking prodigy from West Launceston who some say is the next big thing in the Launceston triathlon scene is now under immense pressure live up to the hype.
Will Gulliver respond or will he crack?
