Lancelin Charity Ride

Written by Moya Jones on . Posted in News

Saturday, 23 Sept 2017 – 6am

Charity: Cure Brain Cancer Foundation

All club members are welcome to join this ride and support crew/vehicles are encouraged. The full ride distance is 130k (one way), but if that distance seems daunting, grab a team mate or two and just ride a section. Of course, you don’t even have to ride – come up and stay for a pub lunch and enjoy the stories of the adventure the riders had! You can bring the family for a fun day out too.

As many of you know, each year there is a nominated charity for the Lancelin ride and we ask for a donation large or small. On this year’s ride we will be riding to raise much needed funds for the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation, nominated by Darren Hine.

Wheels rolling at 6am from McDonalds Currambine, cnr of Delamere Ave & Marmion Ave. This is an ideal start point as the McDonalds is open 24 hours, there’s ample parking, toilets for that last nervous visit and pre-ride coffee. Aim to arrive for 5.45am. Stuart King will be the ride leader for this event.

There will be at least one car following riders for support.

We will also have water, juice and lollies in the car that we can hand out along the way. Please remember to pack spare tubes etc and ensure you have lights on your bike.
At the halfway point (about – 60 km), we will be guests of Bill & Lill at the Willowbrook Farm Caravan Park (1679 Gingin Brook Road, Neergabby WA 6503), who will be providing everyone with coffee, tea and the most delicious scones and jam you have ever tasted! If you are planning on driving up and meeting us at Willowbrook, riders will probably be there by about 8.30am-9:00am or so.

For the route and a map see http://northcoasttriclub.org.au/ride-tour-de-lancelin/
Please print a copy of the map to bring with you. If you’d like a PDF version, please email Kelli on kjoneill@iinet.net.au.

This year we have hired a 13 seater bus and special bike trailer to bring people and bikes back (from Lancelin only). If you want spot (and have not responded to the face book post), please email Kelli on kjoneill@iinet.net.au. The cost will be $15 each, payable in advance by Sunday 18 September. Please pay by direct deposit (as you would a training card). If more than 13 people need a spot on the bus, we can also hopefully also bring people back in cars.

BSB: 066166
Account: 10018211
Reference: LanBus Surname

If you intend in coming (and have not responded to the face book post), please email Kelli on kjoneill@iinet.net.au as I need to know approx. numbers for the scones (for riders, family and support crew). Kelli can also send you a map and route directions.

We look forward to seeing lots of you there.

New Board of Directors

Written by Moya Jones on . Posted in News

Thank you to everyone who attended the Special General Meeting and the AGM on 27th August. The new Constitutions was voted in unanimously and we are pleased to advise the new Board for the North Coast Triathlon Club for the 2017/2018 Season are as follows:

Rob Chapman

Tom Gilbert

Kelli O’Neil

Ross Skelton

James Knipe

Moya Jones

Under the new constitution, an executive will be elected at the first meeting.

Thank you

A big Thank you to “retiring” committee members:  Mike Bosch, Emma Bott, Stuart King, Kim Clay and Martin Flaig.  These guys have been instrumental in the running of the club over the last year and they will be greatly missed.

A special Thank you to David Martin who has been the President of the club over the last 3 years and has brought the club into the 21st century, been the driver behind the adoption of the New constitution and our new banking system, introduced the State Aquathlon (with electronic timing) into the club series and formalised the weekly training programs and  the Ironman and 70.3 training squads, just to mention a few.

David has been a major influence in the day to day running of the club and had to overcome some major hurdles to get the club running as smoothly as it is today.  The creation of the new constitution was a huge undertaking and David along with the sub-committee has created a “template” that all WA clubs can access.  This will make adoption of their new constitution and much easier process. David had worked tirelessly for the club and as Rob said at the AGM, they are very big shoes to fill.  THANK YOU DAVID.

New Kit Launch

Our club uses a custom online shop system provided by Scody to allow members to purchase club kit during specific sales periods throughout the year.

Garments are not held in stock and can only be purchased when the shop is opened. Orders are taken from Members through the shop during the sales period and all sales are then manufactured to order and delivered by courier to your address.

This year, all club members receive a $100 voucher from Scody, which can only be used during the first 90 days of your TA Membership. We have timed the opening of the shop and the range on offer to ensure that you can best utilise this offer to prepare for the 2017 season so take the time to carefully consider your needs.

In keeping with the SunSmart principles and ongoing request from club members, we have now added the long-awaited sleeved aero trisuit to the range of race kit. This comes in either an aero sleeved tri top, or a sleeved one piece trisuit in the new-look NCTC race kit design, so the entire range of race kit has been restyled to match. You’ll notice that the grey panels and cuffs have gone which have been replaced with black and a new graduated stripe across the chest and back. We hope you love our new-look race kit designed to make you feel fast and go faster than ever!

The new garment we’ve added to the range is the Optimise A.I.R,  as worn by pro triathlete Tim Berkel and has been favoured by many triathletes over the past 2 seasons. Our very own club Secretary Moya Jones also has one and claims it took 20 minutes off her expected bike time in the IM70.3 this year and is the most comfortable trisuit she’s ever worn. The Optimise A.I.R garments are designed for athletes looking to get the competitive edge. A.I.R suits feature a zoned fabric construction targeting specific regions of the body, which is claimed to make a noticeable difference in race performance.

There are 2 Optimise A.I.R garments available for you to choose from and both in gender specific styles;

The Optimise A.I.R. one piece trisuit (at a cost of $330), or the Optimise A.I.R. tri top (at a cost of $178).

We will also have the standard sleeveless trisuit ($199) and sleeveless tri top ($110), plus tri pants ($110). These garments are also available in either mens or women’s specific cuts.

Whichever tri top you prefer, you can mix/match with the tri pants.

To benefit from the $100 discount voucher, you need to be sure you order $300 worth of garments from the Scody shop when it opens this week. As the 1 piece Optimise AIR sleeved trisuit has a price of $330 this brings the suit down to a more reasonable price of $230. You may purchase as many items as you like from the Scody store to ensure you reach the $300 minimum order value to get your $100 discount off that order so for your convenience we’ve also added the standard range of cycling kit to the store. This effectively means the discount will pay for a new jersey! And because all orders over $250 are free postage you’ll also save $12.50 on the usual postage.

The only downside is the waiting for your awesome new kit to arrive. But the good news is we have timed deliveries so they will arrive by 6th November.

Don’t delay – find your email with your Scody $100 voucher and get ready to use it this week. This will be the only time you can order club kit for the 2017 summer season, as the next purchasing opportunity is planned to target the State Long Course championship in May 2018 (Busselton IM 70.3).

The shop is expected to be open for Members to make orders online from Thursday 7th. More details to come over the next few days.

At the medal presentation, with Rahul lifting the boxing kangaroo aloft, it signalled mission accomplished.


Report provided by JJ Jegatheva

Waving the Australian flag as he crossed the finish line at Lake Okanagan, in Penticton, British Colombia, and hoisting aloft the boxing kangaroo on the winners platform on Friday the 25th of August 2017 will be one of the most cherished moments for 15 year old NCTC member, Rahul Jegatheva in years to come as it marked the point he took the mantle of World Champion at the International Triathlon Union Age Group World Championships in the Aquathlon, which is a 1km swim followed by a 5km run.

Of the 239 men of all ages that stepped on onto Lake Okanagan Beach at 7.20am, Rahul was the youngest, with many towering over him, in the end he proved that he simply had the bigger heart. He had been hoping for at best a top 20 overall finish, and a top 3 in the age group, but he almost beat the entire field in winning the 19 and under world title.

 

FULL RACE DAY REPORT – 25th August 2017

Very early start to the day, as we woke up at 4am. With a race start time of 7.20am, not much room for error with a need to have proper nutrition, get mentally prepared, get to the race venue at least 90 minutes before the event start and to get warmups done both on land and in the water.

The water temperature in Lake Okanagan where the swim portion of the event was to be held had been fluctuating across the 22 degree mark, which was the determining temperature as to wether this would be a wetsuit swim or a non-wetsuit swim. If it was a wetsuit swim, this would only have been his second wetsuit swim ever, and the first where he would have to remove the wetsuit and continue to race after that, as the first time was a straight Open Water race at Bussleton. The determination would only be made at 6.20am, with race referees confirming the water temperature. We were hoping it would not be a wetsuit swim. There is a belief that wetsuits are ‘the great equalizer’ as it assists some whose swim techniques are somewhat suspect and assists in streamlining better, so while it does assist everyone, the degree by which it helps differs from person to person. Always tricky removing the wetsuit after the swim, and trying not to lose too much time in that process as well. 6.20 rolled around. 21.5 degrees. It was a wetsuit swim. Rahul didnt have his oils that aided the removal of the wetsuit. More worries in the back of my mind.

Of the 239 men that stepped on onto Lake Okanagan Beach at 7.20am, Rahul was the youngest, with many towering over him. In my mind I was thinking ‘He looks like the youngest and littlest, but I hope he also has the biggest heart’. I told him before the race that he perhaps could target a top 20 overall finish, and maybe a top 3 in age group.

Off they went. and with wetsuits, with the naked eye, everyone looks the same. From a distance I can normally pick out Rahul’s stroke in Open Water races, but wetsuits do something to a swimmers natural stroke. The swim leg was a semicircle shaped one from one side of a little peninsula looking outcropping to the other, so the finish line of the swim could not be seen from the start, so I raced over to a rocky outcrop on the finish side, still at least 100m away from the nearest swimmers. With binoculars I picked him out. He was 3rd in the water. The moment I recognized him and that he was in a good position was an absolutely thrilling one. I then rushed back to the run portion of the race, to see the athletes emerging from the transition area to the run course.

Out he came, and he was in 2nd place overall in the race and in the gold medal position for the 19 & U age group. 19 year old Michael Fabes of the UK was only 20 seconds behind him. I was urging him to push himself to the limit, as this was only half the job. A big contingent of Aussies there on the day were cheering him on.

The run course was 2 laps of a 2.5km course. As he finished the first lap, he had dropped to 3rd overall (both the athletes in from of him were in the 20-24 year age category), but what was worrying was that there was a grimace on his face. He later told me that after the first 1.5km, when he was in 2nd overall with a realistic chance of taking the outright win, he felt a twinge in his leg muscles, and that cramping was coming on. He pushed too hard out of the water he said, and this could derail everything. He slowed trying to protect his legs through the finish. Of course at the time I had no idea that this was going on with him. When I saw the grimace and the stride lose its normal rhythm, my thoughts were hoping the illnesses he had been carrying over the past 2 weeks which forced him to miss a couple of swim and run training sessions were not overtaking him at the worst possible time.

Rahul Racing

I then watched looking out for Fabes to see if he had bridged the 20 second gap, but no, Fabes had faded out of the top 3. If Rahul kept going the final 2.5km the same way he had the first 2.5km, he would be world champion.

I moved to the finishing line in anticipation, watching the clock ticking over the finish line knowing roughly when to expect to see him come through.

What a thrilling sight it was for me to see Rahul bursting into view waving the Australian flag in his hands. This was the first time in his life that he has shown emotion of any sort BEFORE he crossed the finish line. He normally shows very little emotion AFTER a race, even in those he has done well in. Anyway, it was pure joy to watch. 17 year old Michael Clough of New Zealand took silver one minute and 3 second back with 19 year old Aidan Pierce of the UK a further 18 seconds adrift.

This was a journey that began about 2 and a half years ago after a surprising performance at the state cross country championships for which he had done no training. He’s been assisted by the amazing support provided by his coaches to the somewhat unusual training focus he has had to take with Perth City Swimming Club coaches initially Ian Mills and now Eoin Carroll providing the framework and space he needed to work with UWA’s Grant Landers & Mike Bosch of North Coast Tri Club, and also to participate in the North Coast Aquathlon Series over the past 2 years.
