Trimendous effort for Knutsford Tri-Club
We had 35 members competing this year which is just great and marks a fabulous end to our first official season as Knutsford Tri Club.
All the members did so well and the ones that were kitted up in KTC colours looked absolutely brilliant; It certainly was easy to spot a KTCer romping around in their dashing pink tri suits.
It’s important to mention that we have a great mix of abilities from Ironmen to absolute novices and for many of our members Tatton was their first race. Particular well done goes to all of the girls in the Super Sprint and Sprint, what an achievement.
In the Olympic race Cordelia Robinson and Fiona Huxtable were simply incredible. Having to wait until the final wave can be soul destroying, especially in those weather conditions so great efforts from you both. Cordelia was the first woman out of the water in her wave!
The legend that is Sammy Fish managed to break his bike during one of the bike laps and instead of throwing in the towel in he thought he’d pop home to get a spare before continuing the race and still coming in at 3.15.52 – BRILLIANT.
Triathlete veteran and seasoned Ironman Nigel Day battled with a very dodgy knee and managed a superb 2.42.06.
It was also good to see Jim Cox’s name without a DQ next to it! Well done for not being disqualified this year. Well done Dr Mark Todman – first Olympic distance race and what a performance. He smashed his 3 hour target.
Unfortunately we had 1 DNF, Chris Blake fell badly on the bike and had to be carted off to hospital, he’s since had surgery on his elbow and is now recovering well. Roll on next year!
