and the city must have look stunning to TV viewers and to the
thousands of spectators who lined the course. The race took place around the Liverbuildings and around the Albert Dock. The event sore racers plunging into the Albert Dock and swimming then cycling around the city. Then if that was not enough, they then run around the dock once more!

"It was a superb start to want is hoped to be a annual event."
