North Coast Tri Club News Update

Written by Zena Coffey on . Posted in News

Massive THANK YOU to James Knipe and all the volunteers that made the Club Series Aquathlon a success on Friday night. We had 56 athletes braving the windy conditions with Rahul Jegatheva (North Coast) placing 1st overall and Rhianna Hepburn (UWA) placing 1st Female across the line. For the full list of results click here Thanks again to our Race Director David Martin for ensuring all athletes had a safe and enjoyable race. We had a large number of Spot Prize donations on the night including a generous 4 x entries for the Waterman’s to the Wall swim from SSLSC. It was a great night and once again not achievable without the support from Club members who volunteered their time.

Congratulations to our three athletes who competed over the weekend in the Ironman 70.3 event in Dubai. Alex Kraan, Mike Bosch and Mahesh had superb races with a few PBs and a podium for Alex. Thanks Tejal Mawjee for keeping us updated and posting photos and videos on the FaceBook Group Page. Looked like an amazing event!


In other news we had a number of our members take on the ‘Swim Run’ event in Two Rocks on Sunday, the conditions weren’t perfect but by all accounts but it was a fun race and proving to be very popular.

This weekend is the Busselton Jetty Swim, a lot of members will be heading down Friday, stay safe on the roads and let’s hope the weather Gods are kind! The long range forecast is looking pretty good. We’ll endeavour to get the Club flags down so that we have a meeting spot on the morning, more updates on Facebook.

On behalf of the Club we wish Alan Hartley a speedy and full recovery, we’ll see you soon Alan.

Thursday Ride; Hepburn Loops

Venue: Meet at Celebrations Whitfords
Time: 5:45am– 7:00am

The Hepburn Loops ride is based on laps around a 10km circuit in Hillarys. We start at Whitfords Shops (outside Celebrations) and take Whitfords Ave to Hepburn Ave, then back to Whitfords along Marmion Ave – we turn left into Banks Ave down to the roundabout and head past Bunnings and back onto Whitfords Ave – thus completing 1 loop/circuit. We ride as a bunch and try to do 3-4 loops (riders can peel off at any time as suit their needs). Ideally, the first loop is done at any easy pace and then we build the pace for each lap – the aim is to keep the pace consistent throughout the whole lap – no surging, no sprint efforts. The final lap is your fastest effort but steady the whole way. Great training for everyone.

Saturday Ride; Club Ride Yanchep/Two Rocks

Venue: Sorrento Surf Club
Time: 6am

The Yanchep/Two Rocks ride is the clubs regular Saturday ride and can be made any length you wish as it is an out and back course.
