Perfect weather and a well oiled route meant for some good racing and times despite the windy bits out on the cycle route. I look forwards to reading the report in 220tri magazine, here's the race report in Tri247.com http://www.tri247.com/article_8490_BLOC+Steyning+Triathlon+report.html?region_id=&category=
Just as a quick note, if you can't find your bike photos - it's because your number wasn't visible from the front - so whilst I've had a good go at them all, you might well have to search on "000" and go through the pictures there. Same goes for the finish photos - although we do have the finish mat times to help us, we have done our best to figure out who is who.
|Never ask the photographer which way to go, we have a wacky sense of humour which is best not tested...|
|careful step on shoes and toe off|
|easier with shoes already on|
|Throw it all over and hop on fast|
|all clipped in and ready to roll with a tricky disc in the wind|
|Enter the British Aquathlon Champs - organised by REP, and rub shoulders - for a few meters at least|
|Nobody told the truck driver it was a no-drafting event|
|Patrick Brown - he won.|
|Last spare space for branding just here|

Well done on another great event from Raw Energy Pursuits,their next big up is the Arundel Triathlon at the end of the month - take your chance to get in this open air lido swim, very tough bike course and a challenging run, all in the shadow of Arundel Castle - beatiful.
Ranelagh Half Marathon, Horsham 10k and Marlow 5 this weekend - thankfully unlikely to be another 40,000 images going onto the gallery - I'm indexed up to my eyeballs at the moment and need a break from the computer screen. Order queues will be attacked tomorrow - promise.
Finally remember it's local council elections today and the AV referendum (Thursday 5th of May), which means pre-school for my daughter is cancelled and we get to lobby the local councillors about the village school that was 30 places short last year, 30 short this year and forecast to be 30 short for the next two years on too. Also I do go and vote, my Grandad died on christmas day fighting for my right (and yours) to do so in WW2, so I'd better do my duty, as I hope will you.
(And remember - as Tony Benn said - if you don't vote, he doesn't need to care about your opinions - and that thought should matter to you.)
Until next time, brace yourself for the rain at the weekend - hopefully (but not during the races)
