An impressive turnout of club members for the Hardwick Sprint Triathlon, with 26 competitors in the field of 171 enjoying the (un?)seasonably pleasant weather conditions.
This event in the club competition series produced some close, competitive racing, as well as a bit of everything else that contributes to the pleasure of being a member of Cheltenham Triathlon Club.
The club cheering section (Karen) was in fine voice, as usual; Colin raced in the ladies wave as Sue (only on weekends and only in rubber and lycra, I'm reliably informed) were he claimed to have been 'roughed up' in the swim and Alan was on time (yes, really!) and looking remarkably unflustered, until he realised that he had forgotten his wetsuit (a plea was issued over the PA for a mens medium wetsuit and incredibly someone had a spare for Alan to borrow).
After all that pre-race action, normal service was resumed at race time with Olly posting the fastest club time and bagging ten points for the Mens Under-40 competition. A mere ten seconds back Paul W gathered the same for the Mens Over-40 comp. Maximum points also went to Anthony (Mens over-50), Elizabeth (Womens Under-40) and Cathy (Womens over-40).
