Congratulations Helen

Helen Vagnoni

Hi everyone. Firstly thanks to everyone for their show of support. I was totally overwhelmed! What a place, what a day. Started out a little slow in the swim but was feeling good on the bike out of town thinking hey maybe we will be lucky, but no there they were, the trade winds in full force, they come from all directions and can take people off their bikes. Then it was head wind at the turn around all the way home. Apparently back in Kona they were saying the strongest winds since 2003!!! With about 35kms to go – bang I find myself on the bitumen!!!!! Some lovely young gentleman coming down the hill, head down not looking where he was going takes me out. I was devastated thinking my race was over. Luckily I didn’t break anything, but from then on really struggled the run was the most painful I’ve ever done – anyway time to recover and enjoy some Hawaii time. Thanks again 🙂

Helen’s Aloha In Hawaii

Written by Dave Norton on . Posted in News

Our very own Helen Vagnoni is on the mission of a life time. She has made it to the very big one – the mama of them all. The Ironman world Championships in Hawaii. The race is this weekend and the good news is that you can follow Helen’s progress every inch (well maybe kilometre) of the way on Ironman live. Please keep the comment up during the day on North Coasts Facebook and lets all think of her as she toughs it out in the wind, heat and humidity that is Ironman Hawaii.

Club Ride Information

Written by Dave Norton on . Posted in News

As of this week all rides will be found on the website in the Training  drop down  under Regular Bike Rides. Saturday, Tuesday & Thursday rides will always be the same ride unless there is a post on the website advising otherwise. For Thursday the 2 routes will be decided by the date – Hepburn Loops on evens and Joondalup Loop on unevens (the orientation of the Joondalup route will simply alternate).

There are some Alternative Bike Rides listed on the Training drop down – these are Club endorsed rides and members are encouraged to arrange a group to do these rides on a Saturday – the variety will be welcomed by many. BUT please note these will only always only be alternative and will not replace the regular ride.

The Lancelin Ride

Written by Dave Norton on . Posted in News

VERY important rider protocols.

This is a long ride on roads that can be very busy You must at all times ride with caution and be very vary of traffic, especially along Wanneroo Road. NOTE: You must ride in single file on Wanneroo Road at all times. Only pass slower riders when it is safe to do so.

Tour ‘de Lancelin – The Cause

Club ride is to raise funds for Breast Cancer and Prostate Cancer. So dress for the occasion – on the ride wear as much pink or blue as you can. Buy the merchandise – “NCTC Lancelin 2012” wrist bands – these will also be your ticket for the evening BBQ. Bring your own lunch for Sat (or eat in town) and also bring breakfast for Sun. There is plenty of fridge room to store your food.
