It started with Seb, an epically moustachioed Frenchman and erstwhile chef at the Plough in Ivy Hatch, and a Facebook / MTB group, the “Trace de Frein Collective” (trans – skid mark, of the brake dragging variety, although judging by the look on a few faces, the other, cruder translation could just as well apply) who have been busy creating some sneaky technical trails around the woods around Ightham and Oldbury Woods. Group member big Chris from the bike shop in Sevenoaks had offered to guide tri clubbers around........
This is the plan I (Tom) devised at the start of the year, taking into account the club championship races chosen and the different distances that members may be focusing on. At the end of each cycle there will be a review process to determine the relative success or failure of the cycle, with changes being made for next season dependent upon this.
Please note that there is no swimming on Wednesday at Wally Hall on 19 March but a set is included for you to use if you plan to swim in your own time at another location.
Tom is on holiday from 16 - 23 March inclusive and Danni will be poolside on both Sunday 16 and 23 March. On Tuesday we have hired a lifeguard and on Friday Huw's son will be poolside.
Sam Bennett, Dan Goscomb and "young" Richard Bryant were 13th in 1:00:21, "big" Jon Hollidge, Tri Tony and Mike Turner were 26th in 1:07:36 and our other starting team of Martin Brown, Stefan Stone and Neil McInerney unfortunately DNF due to Stefan (very early on) and Neil puncturing.
Due to chlorine level.
TRI-UK is offering a £100,000 reward after their state-of-the-art bikes were stolen in vans from the London Bike Show at Excel earlier this month.
Best of luck to Sevenoaks AC as they take on rivals Dartford in the final round of the Kent Fitness League this weekend.
Sevenoaks are currently neck and neck with Dartford to win the championship so it all hinges on the final event at Nurstead. Many of the runners who have contributed to Sevenoaks success are also 7Oaks Tri Club members.
