Race 5 – October 24th

Competitors came from everywhere this morning; 115 Lycra clad enthusiast, which makes it very busy for Doug and the timekeepers. With that in mind can you please all understand that if you wish to start at 6:00am you must register no later than 5:30am.

Adding to the excitement this morning we were testing a new timing programme that will drag us kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. Angela the team leader from the University was pleased with the results so far and said it gave her a good insight into what is needed to ensure the programme works well.

Emily Roper did a fantastic time on her bike of 25:28. Well done Emily.

Good luck to everyone competing next week in Noosa.

Race 4 – October 17th

Our only double distance event for the season saw the very keen triathletes (especially the Queenslanders) hitting the water at 5am DST. This was our largest field ever for this event with 60 participants and a total of 106 for both races. The majority are preparing for the upcoming Noosa Triathlon in 2 weeks. Weather conditions were excellent for all disciplines… only a few complained of frozen feet!! Doug, Di and Jenny were kept busy at registration with another 46 triathletes completing the full event starting at 6am DST. It is exciting there have been 15-20 juniors also competing each week. A special thanks to Tracy Knight and her team for organising the Junior Tri’s.

Wave starts are up for the Noosa Tri 2015

Congratulations for the majority of the field with great working lights on the front and back of your bikes. As we have to comply with our 2015-2016 Twin Town Triathlon and Cycle Club Traffic Management Plan to the Tweed Shire Council and NSW Police it is paramount all triathletes abide by this new rule every week.

Congratulations to Jo Colja reaching the 150 race milestone! This is a significant time spent at the club and Jo is one of our quiet achievers!

Will Styman was runner up in the 2014-2015 Club Pointscore Championship so he is certainly the one to watch! Jim Collins is keen to keep on improving following his performance last season for the long awaited victory over John Warren so both men should be keeping each other honest throughout the season. If you have pointscore champion aspirations you need to be a weekly participant throughout the season to hotly contest this event!

Dr Bike – Talked about using your gears correctly. No cross chaining eg Big at the front & small at the back. Changing down into gears early when climbing hills & at lights to make it easier to ride hills & accelerate away at lights.
