Basildon Aquathon

There was a great turn out from the club's juniors with nine taking part in the first Eastern Region league race of the season. A fantastic swim time of 3:00:09 for Niamh Perry was the second fastest in the Tristar 2 age group (age 11-12) and helped Niamh to be 7th fastest girl overall. Also in the Tristar 2 race, Jennifer Adam finished 30th girl, with sister Kathleen moving up to Tristar 2 for the first time finishing 36th and Annalise Verzijl 39th. Five boys took part in the Tristar 1 race (age 9 -10) with Charlie Knowler finishing 11th boy. A fine debut performance from Hugo Thorneley saw him finish 12th boy. Last year's Tristar Start league winner Stuart Adam and Thomas Verzijl both did very well moving up to their first race in Tristar 1 with Stuart finishing 19th boy and Thomas 21st. Thomas Curtis also making his debut finished 24th. A super team effort by everyone.

Kings Lynn 2-up 25m TT

Two teams featuring West Suffolk Wheelers & Triathlon Club members took part in the Kings Lynn 25mile 2 up Time Trial on Saturday.

Hosted by Kings Lynn Cycling Club, the route started at Fincham in Norfolk before each team of two riders headed south east along the A134 to Mundford. Any wind assistance on the outward leg was cancelled out by the noticeable westerly wind on the return.

A composite team comprising David Young (West Suffolk Wheelers & Triathlon Club) and Ben Micklebirgh (Bury St. Edmunds based Team VeloVelocity) nonetheless performed well and posted a respectable 1 hour 11 minutes 45 seconds for 6th.

David’s club mates Mark Eastwood and John Steed also rode well and put in a fine performance for 1:12:45 and 7th overall.

 

MTB: Mud Sweat & Gears Round 2

Carver Barracks provided a brand new venue for the second round of the Mud Sweat & Gears mountain bike race series. The course featured some tough technical challenges requiring deft skills and strong nerves. There were a total of eight West Suffolk Wheelers & Triathlon Club riders involved of which four claimed top 10 finishes.

In the Grand Veteran race, Paul Watson produced another superb performance finishing 6th. In the sport male category, Malcolm Borg finished 35th despite arriving too late for a warm-up/reconnaissance lap and having to learn about course as he raced it. Not ideal!

Earlier in the day, Sam Asker left it to the final lap before making his move to claim a hard fought  3rd place in the male juvenile race. Rhys Holland-Jones finished 8th in the same race. Robin Lines finished 10th in the youth race.

In the Open male category, Garth Collier finished 21st and Dick Lines 58th but Richard Holland-Jones had to retire on lap 2.

The series stays in Essex where Codham Park hosts round 3 on 18th May.  Full details on their website   http://mudsweatgears.co.uk/
