Perranporth Extreme Surf Triathlon

Has it always been the 'Extreme' surf tri or is that new? It's always been pretty tough, no matter what the name says.

It looks like Mark King was our only  entrant this year and it got him a Cat podium position.

Cardiff Triathlon

This triathlon has a swim in Cardiff Bay, the closed road cycle is on flat scenic roads around Cardiff and finishes with a run out to the Cardiff Bay Barrage.  The weather wasn't as kind as it could have been but Dave was pleased with his time.

ITU London

Phil, Dave and Viv took part in the Open Olympic Distance Triathlon at Hyde Park, part of the ITU World Series weekend.  Phil raced despite recently being knocked off his bike and being badly damaged.  Dave suffered the same problem as Jonny Brownlee and lost out through multiple flat tyres. I can only assume Viv didn't have any issues.
