A new athlete ambassador working with blueseventy, Mark Bowstead (NZL), raced to a stellar 2nd overall behind New Zealand triathlon legend and former blueseventy athlete Cameron Brown. Bowstead gave us a post race shout-out on twitter: "@blueseventy was 1st & 2nd out the water in the men's race, absolutely loved my first race in the helix.Feels so free & fast"
