British Sprint Triathlon Championships – Race Report

St Neots, in Cambridgeshire, and the British Sprint Triathlon Championships were in town. Once again we found ourselves getting up early in a Premier Inn Hotel room ready to head off to do a fairly high profile race. Not only was it the British Championships, but it was also a qualifier for the World Championships...

Osprey Sprint Triathlon, Portland – Race Report

The Osprey Sprint Triathlon, Portland – Race two of the year for me and as I’ve been trying to tell everyone, I’m not taking things quite so seriously this year. I’m still training fairly well and in that respect there had been nothing wrong with my preparation. I’m not however doing things to quite the...

European Triathlon Champs, Kitzbuhel – Race Report

Well, the time had come, time to defend my title as European Triathlon Champion in the Sprint 40-44 year age-group and time to race. To be honest it was unlikely that I would defend it, but I was going to have fun trying and it’s always good to race on the international scene. Preparation My...

British Sprint Triathlon Championship, Eton Dorney – Race Report

May 17th 2014 already? Time for the Human Race British Sprint Triathlon Championships at Eton Dorney and what should have been an ‘A’-priority race for me. Training had been going quite well over the winter but the last 6 weeks or so hadn’t been quite so good. As I’ve posted elsewhere I just didn’t feel that...

Coed y Brenin Enduro 2013 – Race Report

I’ve called this a ‘race report’ but for me and probably most of people taking part it wasn’t a race, just an event. It isn’t classed as a race by the organisers either and is really just an excuse to ride around the hills and woods of North Wales with 600 like-minded people. I’d taken part...

ITU Age-Group Triathlon World Champs, London – Race Report

The day was upon us, Friday the 13th and it was grey and drizzly. We were in London for the ITU Age-Group World Triathlon Championships and I was racing in the 40-44 year old Sprint Distance race. Training had been going well and I had managed a whole season of good quality, consistent training. I hadn’t raced...

Aberdovey Triathlon

The Aberdovey Triathlon was never in my race schedule for this year, but last weekend at swim training I was asked by the organiser if I’d be kind enough to help someone out and do the swim section of the race for them. They wanted to race but didn’t feel comfortable enough in open water so...

Alanya Aftermath

It’s been a week since I got back from the European Age-Group Champs in Alanya, Turkey. I’m now back in the UK after an amazing trip. I booked my travel independently through Thomas Cook and boy am I glad that I did. Those that booked through the BTF’s preferred travel partner Nirvana had loads of...

Turkey Day 5 – ETU European Age-Group Triathlon Championships Race Report

With Race Day upon us, Roger and I saved ourselves the walk from the hotel and instead shared a taxi into Alanya. Due to all the road closures it couldn’t get that close to the transition area but it saved us a walk with all our kit. We then walked the rest of the way...
