A group of over 20 Ful-on Tri headed east to the Olympic velodrome today for a "taster session" of speed & sheer banks. For 3 hours we were little more than a blur as we tore round the wooden boards made famous by Sirs Bradley & Chris, as well as the other GB & world stars who have won & lost there. This is the track ycling equivalent of having a kick-around on the pitch at Wembley!!The track is awesome - you have to ride it to appreciate how steep the banking is and also how hard it is to go hard for any period of timing, on a bike with no gears or brakes!
Sarah Lewis shared the headlines and the podium with some triathlon greats this weekend as she came home as the fastest woman at the 25th anniversary Windsor tri http://humanrace.co.uk/news/race-reports/item/923-stuart-hayes-and-sarah...
Last Monday (9 February) our very own Parys Edwards came to the Barnes Clubhouse (where we do our Wednesday turbo) to talk to Ful-on Triers about her journey from non-triathlete to stunning age grouper to Pro Triathlete.
Many of you will know some of her story already - a top hockey player in Zimbabwe, coming to England to play premier league hockey for Leicester. Eventually she felt she'd had enough of hockey, moved to London where a great friend of hers was a member of Ful on tri in 2007 & the rest as they say is history.
