IRONMAN AC­TION,

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

LO­CALS and vis­i­tors lined the north­ern end of Macrossan St on Sun­day as the first of the Ironman rid­ers showed up just af­ter 11 am. The crowds cheered them on and many of the ath­letes nod­ded their ap­pre­ci­a­tion, while care­fully ne­go­ti­at­ing the turn­around which eas­ily claims tired or sloppy rid­ers. Ahead of them was the jour­ney back to Cairns – and back again to Port. Well done to all the com­peti­tors, they cer­tainly earned the re­spect of those wit­nessed their ef­forts.
