Yep, 10855 images are now online for you to pick over from the Bedford Classic Triathlon and World Qualifying Race 2009, and the Mini-Try too.
We covered the swim starts, the Cycle course (up on the hill), some transition return (just by that turn and the mat), some run course and all the finish line shots - which had two separate cameras (one wideangle with the finish gantry and one close up). So - we should have a few pictures of you to choose from !
Almost 99% of you were caught on the gantry shots and with the help of the results and matching times we have been able to index 100% of the finish gantry shots. However - as you know - we can't read a number on your back with a tri-belt flapping in the wind out on the course without a timing mat to help us, so I urge you all to have a look at the annonymous search results - just use 000 (three zeros) to have a look through them. If you do find a correction - please let us know - use the email link under the preview image to tell us what the caption cataloguing should be.
You all did a great race and it was great to meet up with Steve and his Galeforce event team - it's easy to see how it got world qualifier status. Can't do much about rain in a laptop, but you will be glad to know that the results are now online on the official race website here:
The gallery is now online here: go look, choose and order your world qualifier champs photos here !: enjoy...
There's a small selection of images below - why not have a look ...
Steve of Galeforce Events and Nigel the MD of Autoglass - your sponsor. He probably beat you too, the swine. He'd beat me. Any cracks and his team instantly will fix them, so I guess he's invincible really.
The start of the green wave, Steve was on the phone to the timekeepers (honest)!
The yellow wave went of well - but busy ! I hovered over the water to bring you this shot
The hill climb was "an intense experience", maybe because of the panoramic views.
Big arm victory wave ? - nope - check the damn watch time !
If you are going to do a big arm victory wave, get on the podium and do it properly - well done 773 - you raised a ton of money for charity !
The ladieez winners
Those cheeky chappies who managed to win...only 10 seconds in it, as usual ?
