WaldenJNR wins mob match against Cambridge Tri
We are delighted to confirm that WaldenJNR won the mob match against Cambridge Tri by a score of 537 to 617, with the lowest score winning. We now trail Cambridge 4-2, but having won the last two we can be confident of closing the gap further. Next year the Mob Match will be based on results at the Rob McLean triathlon so they will have home advantage for the first time.
Rob McLean saw another wet day of racing but that did not dampen the spirits as we set up our base camp near the finish line. We had some great performances from everyone, including some interesting warm up routines with hide & seek and twister games! Ross Broomfield came out of T1 did a great flying mount and then his chain came off. A quick fix and keeping calm under pressure he set off like the clappers and despite his hiccup he got the fastest time on the bike for his age group. Just shows never give up and he came second overall. More podiums followed:
- first places for James Fraser (TriStar 2), Helena Dyce (TriStar 3);
- 2nd Alex Astbury (TriStart) Jake Latham (TriStar 1), Jack Stanton-Stock (TriStar 3), Ross Broomfield (Youth):
- 3rd for Annie Donker & Edward Ormsby (TriStart), Angharad Evans (TriStar 2)
We are now eagerly waiting for the IRC team to be confirmed but with strong performances from the team we are hopeful that a couple more JNRs will be joining Helena and James in the team.
