Phew what a scorcher!
No I’m not talking about the weather this weekend but the Club member results from last weekend with an AG win from Neil and podium for Grace last weekend at IM Bolton, both on their way to Kona in October. In addition David B was outright winner at Eton Dorney Bananaman and several Club members completed Long Course Weekend in Tenby. Congratulations also to George at IM Austria and Lucy at Challenge Roth.
No race report from me for Challenge Roth but here’s a picture of me with three time Kona Champ and former Olympic gold medalist Jan Frodeno. I think I did pretty well to hold him off until this point but the effort he had to put in meant he retired soon after and I think technically that means I beat him?
We have our monthly committee meeting on Monday so feel free to send me any topics for discussion. We already have Club kit on the agenda.
In terms of Club rides on Sunday thank you to Alex for leading a ride to Henley. 95km at 26kph – meet 9:10 at Oxsrad for 9:15 start and bring plenty of drink.
Finally we still need lake safety tomorrow morning and next Tuesday – you know where the sign up button is …
Have a great week, and WEAR SUNSCREEN everybody!
