The last Sunday in August of 2014 started early at 7am in Yorkshire for some of our athletes at the Rubicon Newby Hall Middle Distance Triathlon. The conditions were close to perfect with sun though a little windy.
First to finish for Jackpot was Ady Stott in a time of 4:59:54 – just clocking in under the 5 hour mark. Next to finish was China Clarke – this was China’s first middle distance triathlon and what a start to that distance. China finished in 5:02:04 – guessing next up is the 5 hour barrier to break, China?
Colin Hill used the race to sharpen up the fast twitch muscles ahead of the 70.3 World Champs in Mont Tremblant next week in Canada. With a planned DNF, Colin cruised around the course dropping out at the planned point in 6th position, going through the first 10k of the run in 41 minutes. All bodes well for Colin next week – GOOD LUCK!
Across to Canada, Mika Brown represented Great Britain in the ITU World Triathlon Grand Final in Edmonton in the Sprint distance, smashing out a time of 1:06:19, just minutes behind the leader. Mika was the 5th Brit to finish in his age category (20-24 years).
STORMING performances today!
