West Suffolk Triathlon July 2018

The West Suffolk Wheelers Junior Triathlon was held in the picturesque grounds of Culford School on 1st July 2018.

This league event was also an IRC (Inter regional Championships) qualifier for Tristar 2 & 3 as the usual Walden Triathlon IRC race was not taking place in 2018.

Christy Durbin represented Tri-Force in the Youth age group, which saw her racing in a field of 15 girls. She came out of the pool in first position, and maintained her lead with the second fastest time on the bike and run. Well done Christy on another first place.

In Tristar 3, Antonia Jubb was up against 19 competitors and as usual had the fastest swim time in the pool. Some of the girls closed the gap on the bike leg where Antonia only had the 6th fastest time. However her confident running style secured her overall first place.
.
Ethan Storti was the only Tri-Force boy representative on the day. He has been extremely consistent within the Eastern League and was up today in a tough field of 31 Tristar 2 boys. He came out of the pool in 9th place but gained some places on the bike, his favorite leg. With a 11th fastest time on the run, Ethan managed to finish a fantastic 8th place.
.
In the Tristar 2 girls race, Florence started with 16 other competitors. She finished her swim leg in 3rd position but had a storming bike leg with the fastest time. A 3rd fastest time on the run helped Florence to secure 1st place overall.

Wow, what great racing from the Tri-Force Juniors!
