East Grinstead sprint triathlon results

The dark clouds and rain weren't particularly inviting whilst loading the car early on Sunday morning! The upside was that at least the temperature had risen a bit and there was blue sky on the horizon when racking the bikes.

The queue for the swim snaked up, down and through the changing rooms so that everyone started late meaning that the sun had come out for the bike. However the roads were still wet and it was windy, making life a bit twitchy descending the fast corners out of the town. The traffic coming back into town was a bit of a lottery.

It was the first round of the TESE club competition and other South East clubs had obviously decided to take it more seriously and were there in numbers! Cath put in a superb performance to win the women's race. Ben was unlucky to have a mechanical problem on the bike. Gabi took 10 minutes off her last year's time!

This was also 7oaks tri club's sprint race, so congratulations to Olly Hatfield for winning the men's and Cath Linney for winning the women's competition!
