Normal service was resumed yesterday as Ful-on smashed Thames Turbo in the annual mob match, having lost the two previous years, to go 4-3 up in the "series". 42 Ful-on athletes turned out, against 43 of Turbos, but quality overturned the slight numbers advantage to win 3722 points to 3128 (I'll explain my calculation if anyone's interested!).
We had just over twenty keen athletes at our first bike skills day at Hillingdon Cycle Circuit on Sunday. Despite the chilly weather, fortified by coffee and early-season mince pies we worked through a range of drills and skills sessions before spending the afternoon flying round the track in impressive formation! Well done to everyone who attended, we're looking forward to seeing everyone put their newly honed skills into practice on club rides and in races.
What an amazing week of racing it was for the ITU World Championships in Hyde Park!
First of all, some amazing results at the Aquathlon where our reigning age group world champion Anne Hevold successfully defended her title to win her age group and take home the gold medal again. Also, Sarah Lewis had an amazing race to take the silver medal in her age group.
This year's Liverpool triathlon not only being the British National Championships, but also the last chance for Brits to qualify for this year's World Championships in London attracted probably the most competitive age group field we've seen in the uk in a long time. Not only was the level of competition sky high, but the weather delivered super-hot conditions making it a very tough day.
