Dealing with floods and dodging huge freight trucks

St Geroge Tri Team kit designed with Captivations' design team

Tri kit for the St George Tri Team competing in the Mooloolaba Triathlon in March

They breed them tough in Western Queensland. If the droughts don’t break your heart, the big floods certainly come close. The St George Tri Club in Queensland’s South West have faced it all. This year they have had their biggest ever flood.

With no pool to train in, they dodge eels and yellow belly training in the river. There’s no velodrome out there either. They cycle on country roads competing for space with massive freight train trucks. Despite all this, the team continues to train hard for the upcoming Mooloolaba Triathlon held March 24 to 25.

For the event, Captivations is supplying their full triathlon team clothing kit – designed with the help of the  Captivations’ custom clothing design team. And we at Captivations will be making sure they get their new kit delivered well before the Mooloolaba Triathlon.

There’s a rumour that one famous senator from the town will be attending the triathlon and even donning the kit for the cameras. We’d love to see a photo of that!
