Well after a flat 2020 for events and motivation and the world, Jackpot Racing has started to get back into the swing of things with a number of the team taking up a number of different events
Eddie Howarth taking on a little gravel ride 65 miles 6,617 ft elevation gain you could say it was a little lumpy. His back was busted up or something he didn’t really complain too much the next week at all.
WTS Leeds Triathlon
With this being such a local event, you can’t help but support it. Jackpot had a number of the team out.
Pre-race was all about how rusty people felt and how busted up Eddies back was still from a gravel ride. Expectations were on the let’s not drawn end of the scale.
Helen Drew 1st female in age group and 6th female overall
Eddie Howarth 3rd in age group
Tim Ashelfotd 3rd in age group
Richard Roberts 6th in age group and 16th overall
Alistair Cooke 19th in age group
Well, no one drowned and the rust was well and truly brushed off, with strong performances for everyone. Let’s just take a small second to love the uphill blue carpet finish. (I mean whoever put that uphill finish in was having a bad day it was brutal)
A slightly different direction but still the same mindset for the team
Mika 1st overall over the 21k distance. A positive start to a new discipline so watch this space.
Chris Brown absolutely loved it and really enjoyed the running especially pre-race felt a little like aaaaaaaaarg, bit of a swim, aaaaarg, swim, aaaaarg, so you can get the idea was an A race and high on the list of FUN.
Eddie is back out on the bike to complete coast to coast, so looking forward to another non-complaining week post-ride.
Redcar and York triathlon, a few cycle events may be more swim aaarrg may be on the cards let’s see what we all get up to mixing it up.
