Racing: Duathlon May 21 2017

It was beautiful weather last Sunday morning for the fourth Duathlon of the 2016/2017 season.  Congratulations to everyone who raced and thanks to the club volunteers who made it happen.  Once again Matt Slee completed the course in a smoking time of 55:51, looking good Matt!  Hope everyone had  a great morning out, the results are here.  Apologies for some hand written results but there were a few problems with a couple of the timing chips.

Let’s see if we can get a big crowd out for the next Duathlon on June 18th.  We will send out reminder emails in the lead up, but this is the last club race of the 2016/2017 season, so come along and support your club.

Congratulations to all the Ballina Tri Club champions who raced in the Byron triathlon on Saturday 13th May.  Special mention to podium finishers Shane Flannery (1st), Len Benson (1st), Wes Thompson (2nd), Millie Cooke (2nd) and Katrina Sinclair (2nd) in their respective age groups.  It was the last hurrah for the budgie smugglers before the big migration to the UK and there was even a rare sighting of a retired Chris Hackett getting around the course!

Congratulations to everybody who raced today. What a great day it was. A swim in the cool clear waters of Prospect Lake, followed by a cycle with no wind around East Ballina and a fast flat run along Chickiba Lake.
You all stood tall on the podium!
A big huge thank you to Eastside Butchery and The Bicycle Emporium for the excellent spot prizes as well! Thanks for your support!
