Duathlon World Championships

For the past week I've been in Belgium for the 2008 Geel ITU Long Distance Duathlon World Championships. Hundreds of age groupers from more than 20 countries competed in the 18-kilometre run, 74-kilometre bike and 9-kilometre run. Geel, Belgium played host to the MultiSport championship event after successfully hosting previous duathlon world championships in 2004 and multiple duathlon world series events. It was a working vacation, but it was still nice to experience the culture of this Flemish region of Belgium.
