Weekly News 3 June 2014

Vastly contrasting fortunes at the Nottingham Tri – the qualifier for the 2015 Euro and World Champs.

A first ever DNF for both Andy Peel and Annie Sedgwick as they both succumbed to injury during the run section of the Sprint event – you can feel the disappointment and frustration in every word of Andy’s Race Report which is on the club website – tough luck Andy.

Meantime, there were brilliant performances from Fran Davis and Kat Barrett at the same event. Fran’s 4th place in her age group is definitely enough to get a placing whilst Kat’s 8th place stands her a good chance of a roll down slot – let’s hope for the best? Well done both!

At Ardingly Tri on Sunday, Mark Bashford took 2nd place overall with Carly Miles doing the same in the Ladies. Congrats also to Gemma Hayes who won her AG – so good day all round!

Not sure if anyone else was racing at the w/end but if and when you do let me know and I’ll big you up in the week’s news!
And talking of big……. our beloved Chairman and his draft (draught? daft?) partner Matt Cowdrey are about to set off on their ride to Amsterdam if you want to donate to their efforts to raise funds for Prostate Cancer?

My hope is that they will be back and recovered (from the post-ride celebrations) in time for the Southwater Relays where they will join yours truly in the awesome EGTC “Who ate all the pies cakes?” team! Given the current opposition includes Team OMG, Team KAD and the “Goodish, Badish and Ugliish” I figure we’re going to be good for a podium spot – although Matt has promised not to dance on it as he usually does at the w/ends! Anyone else out there who fancies their chances?

That’s it for this week

Train safe
