Weekend update 18th October

Two Medway Velos were in action at the Fast and Furious duathlon run by Bridge Events and held at Cyclopark, Gravesend on Sunday 18 October. 
Michael Stanley and Sally Smith both lined up at 8.30am for their time trial start which saw them running 5.25km, cycling 20km then running a final 3km. The conditions were good with a light breeze making for some fast times.
On the run Sally edged ahead completing the distance in 24mins but Michael’s decision to cycle in trainers saw him making the time back in transition alone. By the end of the bike he was nearly 2 mins ahead of his teammate. Sally snatched a few seconds back on the final run but was not enough to jump ahead of her teammate.
Michael finished in 1hr 15mins 56secs 31st overall and 9th Vet 40+. Sally completed in 1hr 17mins 49secs 3rd woman overall and winning her age group vet 40+. A total of 73 athletes finished.
Another covid safe event very well organised by Bridge Triathlon.
