Brodie slips into fourth

DESPITE slipping on a ramp at the start of her race, Byron Bay surf lifesaver Brodie Moir recovered to finish fourth in the first round of the 2011-12 Kellogg's Nutri-Grain Ironwoman Series at Surfers Paradise on Sunday.

The 25-year-old, who now represents North Burleigh, was thrilled to kick-start her season with a top-five finish.

"Finishing anywhere in the top five sets the tone for the season," Moir said.

"I was angry when I slipped on the ramp, so I bolted and had a really good showing on the board."

Moir, who can now be considered a veteran competing in her sixth consecutive Nutri-Grain Series, says she still gets nervous at the start of each season.

"The nerves are definitely still there and I would be a bit worried if I didn't get them," she said.

Former Lennox Head surf lifesaver Tanyn Lyndon finished 15th in his debut race in the series.

The 19-year-old now represents powerhouse club Northcliffe on the Gold Coast.

The next Nutri-Grain event will be at Portsea, Victoria, on January 8.
