Thorpe park Olympic results

It was an early start for ten 7oaks tri club members when they left to compete in the new Thorpe park Olympic distance triathlon. The swim started at 07:00 in a large water sports lake in the centre of the park going under a bridge full of spectators twice.

The bike course set out a single circuit of an ‘undulating’ course through the countryside. Halfway through the bike was when the rain started to fall!

The run was 3 laps round the park winding between several amusement rides and rollercoasters to the sound of ‘Jean Michel-Jarre’s Oxygene’ or similar and loud screaming! By the end of the run it was absolutely tipping it down so there was no danger of overheating! Some excellent performances including Katrina – 3rd F50, Stephen – 1st M50 and Sam Begg winning outright against some serious competition – awesome speed!
