This year ATC have entered into the Triathlon England South East (TESE) Region Club Senior Series.
This duathlon being the first race of the series. With the need to score in at least three races, we managed to get the minimum of three members to score in the male competition.
With the start time for the adult race being 16:40, the day seemed to be spent hanging around in anticipation. This did allow plenty of time to ensure that there were no technical issues with the bikes. Alex Milne decided not to take advantage of this opportunity, and had to make a last minute “bodge” to his front mech in the car park.
Eventually we racked our bikes and the race started pretty much on time.
Results in the adult male competition were:
Alex Milne – 2nd – 44:03
Tristam Burgess – 7th – 48:51
Joey Chasseaud – 16th – 55:04
Although that is one race in the bag for the males, we are yet to get off the starting blocks in the female and mixed competitions.
Future races in the series are:
20th May – Arundel Lido Sprint Triathlon
10th June – Dartford and White Oak Sprint Triathlon
23rd June – Leeds Castle Sprint Triathlon
5th August – Bewl Water Standard Triathlon (this is also the club championship)
2nd September – Southwater relays
There are four competitions we can compete in. Male, Female and mixed, in which we require at least three entries into at least three events for each category. First three finishers for the club in each category score points and if males and females score in the same event, we also score in the mixed competition. There is also a mob competition where the club scores points simply for the number of entries.
Come on! Get involved!
