Nine very hardy (foolhardy?) members took on the WGP Duathlon event last Sunday morning in temperatures hovering just above zero! Heros everyone of them! It was actually the run route that proved to be slippery with just the usual appaling road surface through Ashurst Wood to contend with! Honours went to Rich Traynor in the mens, just holding off the fast finishing Rob Bream – which made his dash back to get his forgotten bike shoes worthwhile! Kat Parkin took the ladies prize – actually finishing at the correct point this year – and third overall. The Chairman's Special Prize went to Patrick Highland who gave it everything on the second run to overhaul Simon Neave – great effort.

Next event in the WGP will be the 20km Bike TT at Bones Lane on Sun 3rd April – full details to follow.

Before that we have the 2nd Sunday Bike Ride which will be the Challenge distance ride (54 miles) at the Burgess Hill Spring Sportive this Sunday (13th). Sign on at 8.30am and we will try to get away at 8.45/9.00am? I do know that Steve Igham and the Cowman are signed up for the longer Classic ride (71 miles) so contact them if you fancy that (the ride obviously!)

Its then the EG Aquathon on Sun 20th March – all assistance gratefully received! Pete Holley will be happy to allocate jobs if you let him know your availability?

Martin will update soon on details of open water swimming at Weirwood Reservoir – I know its a bit cold to start thinking about that for most of us – but if you've planned an early season race then you are going to have to get in!

Think that's all for this week – except to wish Jackie B a swift recovery following her knee ops! Ouch!
