AS has become tradition for the annual TriHusky triathlon, this year’s event was once again blessed with perfect weather conditions. Capacity fields made up of more than 1000 athletes took to the enticer, sprint and Olympic distance events.
The 22-year-old Wollongong athlete trailed local runner Ollie Whistler out of the water, but required just four kilometres of the bike leg to overtake Ollie and lead all the way to the line.
Following the race Mainwaring said that winning his first TriHusky event was a great way to return to the sport.
“I haven’t raced a triathlon since March, so winning today was a great way to blow out the cobwebs,” he said.
“I used this event as part of my training schedule to prepare for the Canberra half ironman event.”
