Comets And The Inter Regional Duathlon
Seven Comets qualified for the London V South East Inter Regional Duathlon last Sunday the 8th October at Medway Cycle Park near Gravesend. Freddie Lett, Evan Russell, T1's, Ethan Flack, Archie Austin, George Turner, T2's, Spencer Bateman and Lucy Hoseason in T3's. It was a bit of a brutal bike ride as there was a seriously long drag needing good gearselection. The run was difficult as it was on a hilly, shaley out and back lap course. For those interested here's the results including the splits.
It was a high standard with the best of the two regions coming together. South East ran out as easy winners as you'll see. Their biking was simply stronger. All our Comets gave their best and a little bit of bad luck from a couple of them didn't reflect what might have been! This happens in racing, it's unpredictable but they all acquitted themselves really well in tough and high standard of racing, I was proud of them! Highest place was from Freddie Lett who got second in T1. For those not getting in enough biking we still have our weekly Saturday session and at track on Wednesday evenings we have the facility to use our turbo trainers, parents just need to bring a bike for the children. Twenty to thirty min hard riding gives the extra ride and makes a difference. Pictured below is a group of Comets on their Saturday bike eyeing up the vintage cars they'd like when they go to University!
