Bridlington 10 mile TT



Podium position today for Jenni Muston at the Bridlington 10 mile TT. Jenni finished 3rd in blowy conditions on an undulating, hilly course in a time of 27.51, gaining a personal best over the distance…roll on a flat course!

Congratulations to David Bishop and Chris Brown on both being the bridesmaid, not the bride, this weekend.

David put in a top performance at Windsor Triathlon, home of the kings and queens of England, in the elite race posting a time of just 1:49:40 including a 31:58 run split.

Meanwhile in the slightly less glamorous coal-mining Rother Valley, near Sheffield, Chris Brown bumbled to a second place in the 50-54 age group to qualify for the World Championships in Edmonton and the 2015 European Championships in Geneva with a course PB

Weekend Roundup 7th/8th June 2014

Busy weekend for Jackpot Racers and medics!

Matt Wilson crashes at the Grafman TriMatt Wilson decided to inspect the tarmac outside a pub on the Grafman Middle Distance. He completed the bike in 2:30 but knee pain pushed him out of the run after 5k :-(. All news was not bad from Grafman (which was the National middle distance champs this year) however as Tom van Rossum came 3rd in the M30-35 age group and a very creditable 10th overall with 0:32, 2:17 and 1:25. Good effort.
Further afield, swim specialist Kieran Bones-Hill rather unusually found himself in the second bike group at the Blenheim elite triathlon, only to be taken out on the second lap by someone pulling into his front wheel and bringing three other guys down at the same time. Again, though another JR sprang to the rescue; David Bishop followed up his win at Lough Cutra with a 3rd overall. Will Cowan was the third of our team at the race but decided not to do the run due to injury.
Richard Knell-Moore stayed upright to post a 2:10:55 in the Deva with a 1:02 on the bike.
Over at Bala Middle Distance Eddie Howarth ate up more road than toilet paper and baby wipes in posting 4:22:16 to claim 6th place overall with 0:29, 2:20 and 1:30. That’s moving.

Well done everyone

LoughCutra 2014

David Bishop at Lough CutraDavid Bishop is flying the ‘Bishop’ flag these days with Tom temporarily incapacitated. And he is well and truly flying; congratulations on an overall win at the Lough Cutra Triathlon (part of the Castle Series) in 2:00:03, more than 3 1/2 minutes ahead of the nearest competitor.

David’s swim was 19:25, the cycle was completed in 1:07:19 and the run totaled 31:52.

Hope you sprinted in and effort for those 3 seconds David?
