Herne Hill Velodrome cake stall
Thank you to all bakers, sellers and eaters for making our Tuesday evening cake stall at the Velodrome such a success and raising valuable funds for our juniors, on average over £50 per week.
We desperately need more volunteers to bake and sell, especially during the summer holidays, so if you can help out in any way, please let Rosie know.

Velodrome Time Trial
Congratulations to Dan and Alex who raced in the Youth Super Sprint category at the London Triathlon on 27 July.
Alex took 2nd place and thoroughly enjoyed a champagne fight on the podium! (results below).
Tooting Bec Lido: It was the first time going to this outdoor lido. I was expecting a it to be similar to the one at Brockwell but as we went through the entrance it seemed as if it was endless. The weather was very nice which made the pool warmer than usual and the training session was very useful; this was due to the fact that we had to practice our turns around a buoy and then drafting from one another.
I was paired with Elle for the swim and when we had to draft that’s when her stamina helped, I tried to keep up but she was too quick and I soon lagged behind. Overall, swimming in the Lido was a fantastic experience and was very beneficial; it helped massively with pacing and getting used to drafting.
After the swim, Harry and myself went on the Turbo Trainers to do a couple of sets of fast and slow paced cycling. Once that was over a run was next and Matt and myself had to do a lap, while the younger athletes had to do shuttle runs. Elle shortly joined us to do the second lap. Once again we were too tired to keep up and we soon trotted behind her.
So the training session was like a small triathlon; I just want to thank Jon for a very helpful session.
Tim, a CPT member and Tooting Aquathlon race director, says "Many thanks to all you CPTers who took part, marshalled and helped us organise our best junior aquathlon so far. Particularly to Shelia and her finish line team and also the CPT manned drinks table which was a saver!! The first year we've had no time and placing issues to sort out afterwards. Hope to see you all next year and we want to target 100 entrants!".

Race report by Michael Eagling
On Sunday, I had two triathlon related events. One in the morning, and one in the afternoon. I had to rush off from my London Youth games aquathon, which I competed in for the London Borough of Bromley, (big thanks to Alex Yee, Adam Efrat, and his mum, for their support and help, sorry I could not watch you compete,) to Eton Dorney for the 13-14 Fun triathlon.
Mum and I made it there for about an hour before the race which should have been enough time for the race. However, due to the fact of the long walk to the race base, I had to wait to be registered in registration, and having to walk a long way to set up transition, I was putting my wetsuit on, (for practice as it was my first competitive open water swim,) and got in the water with 7 minutes left of my 10 minutes to acclimatise.
7 minutes later, the starter was wishing us the best of luck over the megaphone, then the siren went, and we were off.
At the start of the swim, it was like the start of a flash mob, and it was everyone for themselves. I managed to break away with about 4 to 5 others. Halfway towards the second buoy, I was around 3 meters in front, and was only caught up by one swimmer around three quarters of the way to the swim finish pontoon.
Once out of the water, it was a short run up the ramp, and into transition. Unfortunately for the T3’s, the race organizers had decided to put us furthest away from the swim pontoon, (obviously because we were so hard core,) but eventually I reached my bike. I took my wetsuit off, a lot quicker than I expected, put my shoes and crash helmet on, un-racked my bike, and ran out of transition.
On the start of the bike, I felt strong, until I got around the home straight on my first lap, and the wind hit me like a freight train (except a bit softer) but I managed to fight through it, only to have to do it again, on the next lap. At the start of the second lap, I was still in the lead, but had one person on my tail. I soon found out that he was a very natural cyclist, as when I took a bend just a little bit wide, he shot right past me, and was off before you could say, “Where did he come from?” He stayed ahead for the rest of the cycle section, and into transition.
In transition, I quickly racked my bike, and turned my number around while running out towards the run start.
On the run, I was planning on going out fast, and stuck to my plan, as I did not want to risk being overtaken by the boy who came into transition behind me. I felt strong on the run, and was quickly gaining on the boy in front. However, I was not gaining fast enough, and did not really make enough of an impact on the distance between us.
I finished 2nd, and was rewarded with a freezing wash down, by a man with a hose pipe, (even though I did not ask for it!)
Congratulations to all the Juniors who took part in the Thames Turbon Junior Aquathlon on 16 June (results below) and earned points for their teams. With a special mention to Susannah who competed in her first race.
