Record setter .... Mark Allen # 1 ... Kona Hawaii Ironman 1994

As I mentioned in an earlier upload

Got to follow the whole race on a press motorcycle

Paulo was competing ( My friend Paulo Saldanha )

He would finish top 20

 

Vélo Québec was paying my ride on that press motorcycle

:-)

 

Mark set a record here

He had broken free from Christian Bustos a formidable competitor from Chile !

I got on my stomach on that very hot pavement

 

And went click !

 

If I remember correctly

This photo was taken just after the run into the Energy Lab ( about 20 miles into the 26.2 mile marathon )

100 degree weather that year

 

Mark is a legend in the sport of Triathlon ( 6 time winner of the Ironman )

And a very nice person to boot

 

Have a great weekend
