Postponing the WGP Duathlon by a week seem to do the trick as the weather last Sat/Sun was just about right for a quick thrash of the run/bike/run variety. Saturday morning saw Rich Smith establish an early lead flying around the first run leg with Dave Mycock pulling away from Rob Bream in second. Come the end of the bike leg and Dave was back asking how far ahead Richard was? He's not back yet came the response from myself and the watching Mr Cooney! Turned out he'd got lost, twice, on the Try-a-Tri cycle route resulting in him, eventually, trailing in behind a rejoicing Mick Norrington – its a victory Mick, it says so in the records book! Sunday saw old man Richard Traynor home first following a blistering bike ride but Roger's stop at the roadworks lights at East Court meant he just pipped him to the overall victory. Kat Parkin took the Ladies with Matt Sargeant winning the CSP for a great first time effort at the event.

Full results for this and all the other WGP events can be found on the club website – Members area WGP Results.

Next Sunday, 26 March, is the WGP Cycle TT 9.00am start with warm up from 8.30am. Four laps of the Bones Lane circuit – meet at Horne Golf Club. If someone can give me a hand with the timings that would be appreciated?

Another date to let you know about is Saturday 29th April when we will be running the Race Recce and I'll be asking all of you who can to come along and show the Race entrants around the cycle and run routes. If you can do one and not the other then that's fine – any help gratefully received. Cycle groups going out from around 9.00am onwards and you can choose which route you want to do – except Rich Smith who had better stick with the full cycle route!
