Kempton Duathlon 1st June 2015 Race Report

Kempton Duathlon 1st June 2015 Race Report

Nathan Prior cutting it fine!

Head Coach Holden's first Comet win!                        
 

Yesterday we proudly had our biggest number turn out for Thames Turbo's inaugural Senior & Junior Duathlon at Kempton Park and did all our youngsters perform well! Some of this is to do with the quality of the coaching team from Comets. Results can be found here: www.myresults.co.uk 
Fifteen turned up on a very windy and rain threatened Sunday in difficult conditions. First race kicked off with a win in Tristarts for Nathan Prior as he held off a determined young female to take the overall win, 1-0 to Comets. Monty came in a very creditable 6th and could have achieved 3rd. We had a brilliant tactical win from Poppy Jensen, a 2nd place for Mack (if he'd been in the next more competitive wave I think could have got the win) who had no one close enough to race against. A dispute third for Ben Bisson, a hard earned third place for Maisie and loads more. I think we all did ourselves proud. It was tough, tough, tough, I know as I raced the adult race earlier and didn't come last!. There's two many names to mention but even our Alicia finished her race. We have to remember that Comets are new in racing and are competing against some juniors that are race hardened with a couple of years under their belts so well done everybody. To sum it up we had two 1st's, a 2nd and a 3rd place, not bad for starters.
