Another European Champion for Born2Tri

Not content with having one age group European Champion in Maurice Young we now have Melissa Dowell who was crowned middle distance European Champion in her age group in Rimini on Sunday. Congratulations Melissa on an outstanding and inspiring performance.

Paul Spowage has been busy representing the Club and doing very well.

I competed in the “Speedy Beaver” triathlon at Belvoir castle  which was also the Triathlon England championships for sprint triathlon.  I was 3rd in the m50/54 age group. It was a really well organised event on a nice , slightly long course with a really high quality field due to its championship status. My swim and transitions were distinctly rusty!

I raced again this weekend in the “Tear Jerker off road triathlon “ at Thetford I was 4th overall 1st m50, I was the only Born2Tri athlete. It was quite close only an hour’s drive and well organised although the bike course was a bit flat and mainly farm tracks so not really as “off road “ as I expected however the run was quite difficult underfoot to make up for it.  Jonathan Davies was the chief official so the rules were strictly adhered to !! It would make a good introduction to off road tri for any of our members thinking about next year.
