FORMER Westbury Harrier Martin Palmer finished an excellent sixth in the grueling Alpe D’Huez Triathlon today.
“That was fantastic! ” said Palmer.
“The swim was terrible, panic attack again after about 200m, but backstroke for a bit off to the side got my breathing under control, then from there just amazing.
“So so happy!”
It is worth noting that the bike course included an ascent up the legendary Alp D’Huez and its infamous hairpin bends seen regularly on the Tour de France.
