Weekly race round up

Riders where helped with a light tail wind and dry roads and also great views from the road over the coast line.

Tom and Jeremy completed the Cotswold 113 triathlon on Sunday 20th September. The weather was nearly perfect with mild temperatures and blue skies, though a strong wind made for some tough sections on the bike. Tom, who was doing his first triathlon at such a distance on near-nonexistent training, completed the 2km swim course in 42:03 (407th/529), 90km cycle in 2:27:06 (47th) and crawled around the 21km run with cramp in both legs for the last 20.5km in a time of 2:27:31 (438th) to finish 288th overall. Jeremy, a seasoned triathlete completed the swim in 38:28 (303rd), cycle in 2:35:35 (108th) and run in 1:55:09 (212th) to finish 158th overall.
