Beautiful conditions for the WGP Hill TT and my thanks to all those who came out to ride and also to Michael Diebel for his assistance with the timing and ultra fast calculation of the results! Clear winner was Roger Taylor with Rich Traynor second and a fantastic ride from Matt Sargent in third making him the worthy winner of the CSP – toe clips and flat shoes are no barrier when you have a great set of bike/run legs!

We finish the WGP with the Sprint Triathlon on Saturday 22nd April. The race will start at 7.00am in the pool – all starting together! Transition in the carpark by the Pavilion and the distance will be the original 500m swim, 26km cycle and 5km run. If you don't want to take part then can I ask that you swim in the later session please? That will also mean you can come outside afterwards and cheer them all home! In particular you will need to watch the battle for overall victory between Dave Mycock and Tim Coogan in the Male Senior and Rob Bream and Roger Taylor in the Male Vet categories – bring it on!

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

Saturday 29th April is 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, thanks in advance!

Finally, as you are all aware now is the time to be letting Cathy know that you are available to help out at the EG Triathlon over the w/end 13 & 14 May. Any assistance at any time is welcome and do encourage friends, family and neighbours to come along as well – the more the easier it is!

Train safe

On April 20th 2017 I will be joining the Mayor of Crawley's Sky Jump team leaping out of a plane at 10,000 feet raising money for local charities. If you'd like to donate then please follow the link;

Thanks for your support - see you when I land!
