British Triathlon always takes a big team to this event which is run by Powerman Holland. This year it was 10km run/60km bike/10km run. The 2015 team was 50 strong with some genuine medal contenders...and others just there for the experience (that's me then). Horst is a nice little town in Limburg, less than 4 hours drive from Calais. The course is pan flat on closed roads. The biggest hill on the bike is a speed bump. The only real challenge is the number of dead turns. I imagine it's a bit like a criterium without the drafting.
Bloomin’ eck this was hard. Three hours of fighting a losing battle against mud and rain and wind!
Sam Begg and I (Claire Hitchings) were the hardy ones from the tri club to enter the Triathlon England National Cross Duathlon Championships at Hole Park last weekend. The event comprised a 10 k run, 26 k mountain bike, followed by a 5 k run.
The strong wind did not stop some fast times and putting us in the lead after the first event. Well done everyone.
