Crew Race: Light drizzle and a balmy 17 °C water temperature greeted the athletes taking part in this years crew race which was held 3 weeks after the main race. Due to lack of support boats it was decided to swim 6 laps along the shore line in Tveitevannet. The rain had stopped by T1, but the roads were still wet for the first lap to Herdla. T1 was completed well by all 3 participants. Ole Jacob rode solidly all race and kept his lead into T2 at the stone hut in Kollevåg. Jan Kenneth after suffering cramps on his first cycle lap rode better and managed to arrive at T2 in second place. Jan Wilhelm rode well but suffered from a sore neck on his new tri-bike. After one lap on the run leg Jan Kenneth had to quit due to a bad knee. Jan Wilhelm and Ole Jacob finished in nice summer weather.
Siri was one of the support people, but also had the time to take some film.
