The Bahrain Endurance 13 Team is back in action in Florianopolis and Salou, two reknowned destinations for tourists. The weekend will be anything but a holiday, however — these men are set to get to work!

Brent McMahon is headed to Ironman Brazil for the second Ironman of his career after his smashing sub-8 hour debut in Ironman Arizona last year. He has just come off a huge training block building up mileage after his runner-up finish at Ironman 70.3 St. George. “I know I have the speed and race sharpness as shown from St. George, and I now have the 5-hour bike legs and marathon rhythm engrained,” he says. “I am excited for another Ironman challenge and I am approaching it with the same attention to detail, but relaxed demeanor as I did for Ironman Arizona.”

Joe Gambles will be at Challenge Salou, an easy drive from his new home base in Girona. He says, “I really like racing Challenge races, and with the excellent prize purse it was an easy choice.” Although his preparation has not been as smooth as he wanted, he is back on track. “My effort for Salou will be 100%. I have some very good athletes to race this weekend with Timo Bracht as the main threat. I hope to race up to my ability and if I do, I have a good chance to win.”
