Eight early risers enjoy pain of RUN BIKE RUN

The sunday after the clocks went back we held the first of the summer multi-sport series events. The course was a full 5k run to start,  two laps of the bypass on the bike (12k) and then 2k over the traditional 1 km loop around leisure centre.

After getting over the initial shock of Lee turning up – not only on time (almost) but stripped down to the bare minimum of a trisuit – the eight competitors set off  in what were pretty cold conditions.

Tom Coates, recently back to fitness, had dusted the cobwebs off his bike only the night before and slightly concerned about the bike section, flew off at a sprint down into Steyning. His efforts were rewarded as he returned in the lead by just over a minute, ahead of Lee in second place and Adrian – another minute behind.  Despite the low profile cycling of Adrian, John and Lee, down on their tribars, Tom, sitting tall, still managed to keep the competition at bay and regained his minute advantage by the end of the race, winning in just under 47 mins (46. 53). Lee remained in second place  (47.59) – showing he can do this ‘multisport thing’ and Adrian, who had closed the gap, 3rd in 48.13.

Adrian can console himself with the fastest bike time (19.31) although John B put in an equally fast performance (19.39) with his newly retired slimline look.  Chris ‘the Headmaster’ wins the award for fastest combined transitions – all important – showing room for improvement among others.

Lydia, Amanda and George all put in solid performances and everyone looked everybit the real duathlete.

Apologies to George for not paying attention and letting him ride into transistion!

Finally, a round of applause for our top class timekeepers  – Barbara, Martin, Jeremy and Sue –  who also rose early to support the event and without whom, we could not provide such comprehensive results!  

 Full results below. Sorry no photos! Next time…….
