North Coast Tri News Update

Written by Zena Coffey on . Posted in News

With Winter well and truly here, most people’s training regimes have been scaled back. Now is the time to work on the strength training we all seem to neglect and recuperating for next season. However there are a number of athletes with big competitions coming up that still need to get out and keep going, members who have won spots to the World’s in Nice and Kona or other races interstate, so plenty of opportunities to jump on board some Winter training for the die-hards out there.

Two big events coming up to round the season off, so get on board!

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.

North Coast News – Count Down to Busso!

Written by Zena Coffey on . Posted in News

A 2nd National Title for NCTC Aquaman Rahul!

In early morning hours of Saturday the 6th of April 2019, at Broadwater Parklands in the Gold Coast, a 17 year old swimming and running machine from Western Australia blew away the competition in defending his National Title at Triathlon Australia’s National Aquathlon Championships. In becoming the 19&Under National Champion for the 2nd year running, Rahul Jegatheva of the University of Wester Australia, sets himself up perfectly for the upcoming International Triathlon Union World Aquathlon Championships in Pontevedra, Spain on the 2nd of May 2019. And if he reaches the ultimate prize there, this newly minted 2-time National Champion, will become a 2-time World Champion!

Rahul picked up the gold in the 19&U a minute and a half ahead of New Zealander Callum Hancock, but it was a brilliant battle in the overall, where he was beaten into 2nd by multiple times national surf champion and Pro Ironman, Isak Costello of Queensland. Isak shot out ahead of the pack at the start of the swim, with Rahul working hard in the water to haul him back the pair making a break from the rest of the field. At the end of the swim the gap between 1st and 2nd overall was 1 second. In the first kilometer, Rahul moved ahead of Isak, but the Redhead SLSC star then turned on the afterburners for the rest of the race to cross the line in style.

This 2nd overall finish Rahul was his best ever at a Nationals after finishing 4th overall in 2017 & 2018. Pro triathlete and triathlon coach Harry Jones out of Port Macquarie finished 3rd overall a further 33 second adrift.

An exciting period for Rahul who in the past two weeks has also been named a finalist for the Seven News Young Achiever Awards (WA) in the Sports category.

“I am really lucky to be able to learn from and get inspiration from 3 different sources. My swim coach Eoin Carroll of the Perth City Swim Club, run coach Professor Grant Landers of UWA and the brilliant athletes of the North Coast Triathlon Club where I have honed my Aquathlon techniques as they have a 12 race Aquathlon series over the summer”

National Championships such as this afford world ranking points to the top 5 finishers, and this result should move Rahul into the top 24 overall in the world. With Aquathlon being selected by the Association of Olympic Councils for inclusion in October 2019 at the inaugural World Beach Games at the spiritual home of Triathlon, Mission Beach in San Diego, USA, a strong finish at the World Championships in the overall Elite category will put Rahul in the mix for one of the 24 coveted spots  on the hallowed sands where the sport of Triathlon first came into this world in 1974!

Fantastic achievement Rahul and we look forward to tracking your progress to Spain.

Busselton 70.3

With only four weeks to go it’s time to lock it in! If you haven’t already signed up and want to, do it! Click here

We will be putting a post on Facebook this week to see if there is any interest in people putting teams in, if you’ve got your cycling sorted but haven’t done much else, or only hit the pool this summer, or concentrated on your running? You may want to join up with other members for a bit of fun and get involved! Keep your eyes peeled for the post.

Last count we were top of the leader board for entries, 67 individuals in total. If we can extend that margin a little we should be in a good spot for the “Pimp our tent” competition, WE WANT THIS! Guys think of the spectators!!! This will make it an awesome day, if the spectators are happy all athletes get a pumping cheer squad. Speaking of which, it’s the “Where’s Wally” army heading down so start getting your supporters kit together, red and white striped shirts please!

Cycling Training Sessions

Tuesday Ride; Iluka Loops

Venue: Meet at Celebrations Whitfords
Time: 5:45am – 7:00am
Details: This is the regular Tuesday morning club ride. There are three ride plans catering for all speeds of riders: Group 1 – plus 32km/hr, Group 2 – plus 28km/hr, Group 3 less 28km/hr.  This is a high-intensity training session with a mix of fast, flat sections plus 3-7 hills and dedicated recovery points.  The ride is suitable for all levels, see WEBSITE for more information.

Thursday Ride; Hepburn Loop

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 Long Ride

Due to the Easter Break, we encourage members to self organise their long ride.
