It has been a great week for Triathlons!

Massive Congratulations to Steve Bright for winning his age group at Westonbirt on Bank holiday Monday… and to Henry P for coming first in his age group in Portsmouth. Henry and Ella are racing again today (2nd June) – Best of Luck to you both.

Congratulations to the TriHard team at Blenheim yesterday… Kirsty was first in age group for a little while.. George (1 hour 24) and Andy (1 hour 30) both smashed it with incredible times.. and all this despite being in a wave where sadly there was a bike crash that stopped us all. We have been worried about the chap who crashed.. but apparently his is going to be OK despite being unconscious and seriously injuring his face… so we all wish him well and a restful, fast recovery from his injuries.
