Weekly Update

Written by Moya Jones on . Posted in News

What a turn out for our first Aquathlon.  31 amazing triathletes headed into the churning waters of Sorrento Beach.  I looked on in awe ….  I only watched (I forgot my swimmers and run gear. Oh dear, was that on purpose????).  Fantastic effort to all those that gave it a go.

Congratulations to young Rahul who once again dominated the race. The next race is in 2 weeks on 28th October.  Don’t forget, that this is a handicap race, everyone has a chance to win  the series.

A big thank you to Emma for putting on the delicious hamburgers, who would of thought the turnout would be so awesome.  Yes, there will be more hamburgers next time.

Another rainy Saturday, what is going on!!!   Please, please, please let it be sunny next weekend.  The WIT girls are really hard core, cycling in the rain…again…..

Stuart’s Bike Maintenance Workshop was once again well attended, very informative and I remembered my notebook this time, so no excuses for me!!!
