The Galaxy’s hardest race. On planet Zog, every 3 years a triathlon is held. This year is set to be its hardest course ever. First, there is a kilometre of swimming across a bog. Then, a 20k cycle with slopes of up to 27%. Finally, there is a cross country for 6k through a bog with tree stumps towards the finish. Only 72 people were competing ??????????. I had done well in the swimming and came out of the water ninth. In cycling [ a mixture of mountain biking, cyclo cross and road racing]I caught up to the man up front. It was him or me and there was 1 kilometre to go.
