It was an immense weekend for Jackpot Racing this weekend. Results and a full write up on the National Triathlon Relays can be found here. Utterly superb racing.
Hopping to Austria, Cat Jameson was in action again at Challenge Walchsee middle distance. Cat finished 9th lady overall amongst a strong field including Lucy Gossage who finished 2nd. Cat’s swim was astounding – 24:18 over the 1900m – blowing the rest of the field away and setting off first onto the bike with an exceptionally fast time of 2:30:16. This is Cat’s 4th middle distance race this summer and only a week after winning the Olympic distance at Embrun last week. You are having an amazing season Cat.
Meanwhile in the UK, China Clarke took part in the 300 mile bike from Newcastle to London for Ride24. Having put in many, many miles of training for the ride, the Ride24 did not quite go to plan for China. Two punctures, then 165 miles in at 11.30 pm, China hit a pothole and now sports a deep gash (understatement) on his side. But he soldiered on after medical attention. Then PING, the chain snapped. Body sapped of energy and dehydration started to set in. At 295 miles, a vomiting episode and China finished by walking across the line. A story and a half – we just hope you are recovering well now China. Massive congratulations to you – you did it!
