***Duathlon – 16 February***‏

Evening all

Things are looking ‘good’ on the weather front for Sunday (but it’s all relative I guess) and the Race Committee have done an excellent job of getting everything ready (good work!).  Race details below:

  • Race – St Catherine’s Duathlon
  • Date – Sun 16 Feb
  • Sign on – 7/715am
  • Start 745am PROMPT!
  • Distances – approx. 5k/22k/3k
  • Whilst it is a “Seniors Race”, Junior members who are 15 or older on 31 Dec 2014 can race.  Parental consent will need to be given (via a signed declaration) on the day.
  • The Café is apparently opening early to allow for spectators etc.  Bring a friend.
  • Entry – free for members.  £10 for non-members (the amnesty is over and race fees apply to all with no exceptions, if you’re not a member – get signed up via Entry Central now!)

Looks like the turnout will be good.  I am looking forward to finding out the answers to the following questions that are playing on my mind…

  • Will diesel engine Minky be all freshly waxed up and shiny?
  • Will Damien be chatting away during the whole race, or just the first run leg?
  • Will Mark “the Machine” Nicol be able to physically defend himself on the bike if Nathan overtakes?
  • Will Jonny Flanagan be using his laptop during the race?
  • Will Tim Rogers wear his helmet again during the run to save time in transition?  (Marginal gains Tim, I say it every time…)
  • Will Lyndon recover from a very serious bout of man flu (it hits us men very hard) to challenge for a podium spot?
  • Will the golden couple of Triathlon (Simon R and Della R) cross the line holding hands?
  • Will anyone catch Jo “Go Go” Gorrod?
  • Will anyone catch Ollie “Turbo” Turner?!
See you there!  Over and out…
