What’s On Guide

Written by Stuart King on . Posted in News

October sees the season kick-off which no doubt we’ve all been looking forward to.  Time to dust-off the tri-suit and put on your club colours for the season ahead.  In this newsletter we’ll be giving a quick summary of upcoming TWA sanctioned events local to WA, and as the season progresses we’ll give a brief recap on some of the local races from the previous month where NCTC has been represented.

City of Armadale Duathlon – Champion Lakes – 08/10/2017 – We start with a bang and straight in to the first State Championship race of the year which just so happens to be the Australian Championship also.  We can all agree it’s best to wait for the WA heat to arrive before getting our feet wet, so starting with a duathlon is a perfect way to start the season.  Held at Champion Lakes in Armadale, this race is also race 1 of the Junior Triathlete of the Year Series.  Given that it is a State Championship it also counts as race 1 of the Triathlete of the Year series.  Consisting of a run / bike / run format, a range of distances are available to test us; Tadpoles (7-11 years) have 500 m / 2 km / 250 m to negotiate, and for the seniors there is the short course (2.5 km / 8 km / 1.5 km) and long course (5 km / 20 km / 2.5 km).

Phoenix Aquathlon – Guildford – 08/10/2017 – If you really feel like you simply must get wet, and the (reducing) chance of rain at Champion Lakes isn’t enough, then get across to Guildford for the pool-based Phoenix Aquathlon.  Again, a range of distances are available from Tri-stars (7-11) with a 100 m swim and 750 m run, Junior (12-15) with a 250 m swim and 1.7 km run, and Senior (over 15) with a 400 m swim and 3 km run.  There is also a relay option for teams of four, with each team member completing their swim-run before handing over to the next.

Kalgoorlie Womens Triathlon – Kalgoorlie – 15/10/2017 – If you prefer to spend more time driving than racing, and are of course female, then head East until you find Kalgoorlie.  200 m swim, 9 km bike and 2 km run for those that venture out, although attendance at a seminar on 2nd September was compulsory, so probably more suitable for the Kalgoorlie locals!

TWA Development Program Draft Legal Race 1 – Champion Lakes – 28/10/2017 – Back to Champion Lakes for the Juniors for race 2 of the Junior Triathlete of the Year Series.  A draft legal event for ages 12 to 23, featuring a fun enduro format whereby there are two races of 250 m swim / 8km bike / 2 km run, with a short break in between.  The first across the line of the second race picks up the win.  Note that as it is draft legal, to compete in this race you will need an ITU bike endorsement.

Good luck to all competitors.  Remember to wear your NCTC gear to ensure you pick up the biggest cheers and the free speed boost that comes with it!

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.

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.
