Reece Dickson was the only Tri-Force member to head down to the Olympic Park for the Duathlon – despite nearly not making it due to an accident on the M25.
Reece had done the same event October last year, but for some reason wasn’t feeling on top form with his nerves getting the better of him, and as his first event of the year it wasn’t the best start. He completed it 2 minutes slower than last time taking 15th place – the weather conditions didn’t help as it was very cold and windy. His first run was ok and he made up some time on the bike overtaking some of the other competitors. However his last run was a struggle for him and really slowed him down.
There were some interesting stunts going on though with one competitor coming off his bike on a sharp bend but managing to get back on and still take 2nd place!
Reece has put his name down for the same event in April to give it another go.
