Dambuster Duathlon Race Report

Dambuster Duathlon Race Report

The Dambuster Duathlon is a qualification event for the Short Course Duathlon World Championships 2012 - Nancy, France.


 

Dambuster Duathlon took place in perfect conditions on 10 March 2012 at Rutland Water, Leicestershire 10k run - 42k bike - 5k run

 

 

Margaret put in a fantastic performance and was runner up in her age group to last year's World Champion.


 

Steve did terrific race times and transitions but his effort was messed-up by a puncture towards the end of the cycle. However, he completed the cycle on the wheel rim rather than waste further time fixing the puncture. His form seems superb, so he is certainly capable of achieving a GB age group qualifying time on another day.


 

Jim thoroughly enjoyed an exhilarating event but was out-classed on this occasion by a fiercely competitive field in his age group. However, Jim has been selected for his GB age group to compete at the World Long Course Duathlon World Championships 2012 in Zofingen, Switzerland.

After a successful 2011 The Brighton Tri Race Series are ready to offer more fantastic training and challenges throughout 2012

A group for all those interested in Triathlon events, both in and around Brighton, the BTRS Training Series has been set up to offer a set of FREE 'race conditioned' sessions to help you with your training. There are absolutely no costs for these events.

2011 was a successful season for all involved with the series and we would like to thank you all for being part of a fantastic Journey. With many new strengths discovered, new limits passed and new friends made it was a fantastic year that culminated in Novembers half Ironman challenge. The event was a tough day for all involved and for those who had the courage to take it on we would like to congratulate you for what you have achieved.


Our '2011 end of series' award night was also a great success, with recognition and awards handed out to our athletes for some exceptional performances. The evening raffle helped raised funds to support our local athlete, Sophia Warner who will be representing Great Britain in the 2012 Olympics.

We're excited about taking things forward in 2012, so with this in mind may I wish you all an awesome start to the new year race season. We're looking forward to welcoming new athletes into our ranks and also seeing familiar faces return from last year where we hope to help you reach some new personal bests.


Yours in good health and happy racing,

Kimi Kann & Kurt Charnock
