After an action packed first ITU World Series race in Abu Dhabi, our Commonwealth Games bound athletes have headed over to the Gold Coast, some with snow delays thanks to the Beast from the East. Once again, there is plenty going on this weekend, including the ITU World Cup in Mooloolaba and the first ITU Sprint Distance Duathlon Qualifier.
