Race 9 – 21st October

It was another beautiful Saturday but just a bit windy for our tri with 75 triathletes coming out to enjoy the morning! We had Angela from the Griffith University come down again on Saturday with her new program for our Tri Timing System. The timing system which they have called Tri Timer won the Opmantek ICT award which was an excellent achievement. Some of the features of this new timing system will be membership maintenance, race number administration, timing functions, general administration and individual performance seasonal points tallying. The Tri Timer is the work of Angela King, Hussah Alzunidy, Jake Braiding-Watson and Satishkumar Elumalai. Congratulations and we can’t wait to see it in action.

DR BIKE – Awareness in the windy conditions when racing. Wheel sizes are very important and deep dish wheels can sometimes hinder your performance. Choose your wheels wisely and always bring your training wheels just in case. What size cassette should you choose? Best thing is to ask your local bike shop what would be best for you and your riding capability. You should be riding with your cadence ranging from 90-110.

It was perfect conditions for our 95 triathletes this morning!

President Wendy welcomed Alan Hogg “Hoggie” who has had a 7 year hiatus. Hoggie recently participated at Noosa and enjoyed the Tri again so we look forward to seeing him soon. A special congratulations to our newest grandad Pete ‘Doc’ Harrington. Sarah gave birth to a baby girl on Thursday. Both are doing well. Best wishes to Sarah and the family from the Tri Club.
As improvements are being made in weekly times could everyone please remember at the run leg finish STAY in SINGLE FILE, wait until the person ahead has called their number and most importantly call out your number AT THE DESK to help the girls have results for everyone! Thanks for your co-operation.

DR BIKE – Dr Bike ‘Paul’ began the presentation with bike terminology such as seat, seat post, cranks, chain rings, bearings, bottom bracket, crank length and seat position. Many triathletes now favour a seat position forward and higher to enable a faster run leg. Anything that helps a few seconds will no doubt be tried by many! Bar tape was another essential to check every 6 months due to a build up of sweat and water causing oxidisation and subsequent deterioration of the aluminium or alloy. Be sure to regularly check for any changes to the bar tape shape. Most bikes with compact chain rings are a more accessible choice when choosing to purchase a bike as they are easier to pedal up hills …. a major bonus for anyone!
