Velo 1000 lap challenge - 19 June

Superb effort by all our juniors who successfully completed the 1000 lap challenge in glorious sunshine on Tuesday evening. With only 16 juniors present it really was a challenge, but everyone worked extremely hard, with some completing more laps than they'd expected, ranging from 20 to 65 laps per member.

No prizes were awarded on the night to give everyone a further two weeks to get more sponsors but each rider was given a Windsor Triathlon drinks bottle for completing the challenge. Karen and Louis also provided post-ride Milky Bars and Mars Bars which went down a treat with the riders and lap counters, thank you!

First prize: Velo Scalectrix (sponsored by Yee Associate Ltd)
Second prize: £25 voucher at Bon Velo at Herne Hill
Third prize: £15 worth of tri goodies

Phil has calculated 1059 laps equates to a whopping 476 kilometres, that's 297 miles in old change. or a ride to Cornwall. He congratulated everyone on completing in a very good time with very tidy groups and suggests Land's End to John O'Groats (+800 miles) might have to be the next challenge!

Nuffield Health (High Performance) Drafting Triathlon

Report by Alex Yee

Alex - 1st place Tristar 3 - Nuffield High Performance Drafting TriathlonSurprisingly on 27 May the weather had really come out for the Nuffield high performance triathlon. We left our house early due to Dorney being far away and considering how early I had to start. When we got to Dorney I was shocked by the sheer turn out of the race with hundreds of cars lined up but then I found out there was a swim race before our race and there was only 30 people in my race when I found this out I felt very confident but after registering I went to rack my bike and was shocked to see the spec of the bikes lined up, I mean quite literally carbon everywhere. This made me seriously nervous but excited at the same time as it felt just like an elite race.

We entered the water at 9:20 for a 9:30 start and I had decided to use a wetsuit for the swim though it was optional. When the race started the sheer pace that everyone set off at was shocking and after the 400metre swim I felt spent only coming out around top 10 but then had a really good transition coming on to the bike leg in the top 5. Once I had set off on the 10.6km I caught up to 2nd and 3rd and made a group with them we worked hard and then caught onto Hayden Burton who was in 1st place and who is also current national champion in Rristar 3. We then finished up the cycle and travelled into transition. I then had the worst transition ever due to someone already racking in my place meaning I had to put my bike elsewhere and then come back to put on my running shoes on so came onto the run 3rd after that confusion.

On the run I caught up to second place pretty easily but then struggled to catch 1st place but I dug deep and caught him I carried on running hard and won my race by over 30 seconds in the end.

Apart from my chip falling off in the water and my dodgy transition I had a good race and believe the course suited me well.  Also a big well done to the other CPT partcipants at Dorney triathlon last week.

Weil's Disease

Not wanting to cause any alarm but just to make you aware, there are rats at Chipstead and no doubt Haysden and any other open water venue where we might swim....only two-three people die from this per year but the key is early detection of symptoms and alerting your doctor to the fact that you have recently swum in dirty water. Cuts etc. should be well-covered beforehand, wash well afterwards....etc. etc. keep your mouth shut!! For more information go to the Leptospirosis website.


Tooting Bec Aquathlon

Entry is now open for the Tooting Bec Aquathlon on 21 July. They are also holding a free taster evening on 9 July at 7pm – 8pm at the Lido. The session is free to all juniors and parents racing on 21 July. Jon H is helping out with coaching on the night.

Trinity Triathlon

Message from John P: Now that you’ve all recovered from our race, I’d like to remind you that the Trinity Triathlon is on 8 July.

Trinity need as many helpers from our Club so that they can put the event on. You don’t need to be there the day before, only on the Sunday and hopefully we’ll have a picnic on the school grounds after the race.

It is important to have as many of you there as possible, so please send me an email confirming you can attend.

This is only a children’s event, therefore the last children racing should be finished by 13:00, which leaves you the rest of the afternoon for the picnic or to go shopping!
