Dragons SSTR3 2020 Results

posted 10 Jul 2020, 21:55 by HK Dragons Triathlon Club

Another great morning for Swimming Riding and Running down at Shek O beach for another Dragons Summer Series Tri Event. 
Whilst most of the field could offer little by way of competition for Tom Elliot, there were great individual battles out on the sun-drenched road between Shek O and Big Wave Bay.
It is great to be able to welcome a host of new-comers to the accessible "3-stage" sprint series. Looking forward to watching the improvement of Thomas Butter, Harry Ross, Natalie Kwan and Jane McNae now that they have all been "blooded" on the course. 
The raw results are uploaded here for your perusal. 

New records broken in Dragons annual Team Time Trial!

posted 27 Jun 2020, 01:28 by HK Dragons Triathlon Club

New records were broken in today’s Dragons TTT, and not just in terms of the time taken to complete the course!


We had a record turnout in record temperatures, and an amazing new male and new female course record.


One thing that we are learning about this pandemic is that the V-shaped recovery being predicted by some economic models, is also taking place in age group sport.


Continuing a trend that we saw first with the Dragons Summer Series mini triathlons at the start of the month, the SIRs Peak TT last Saturday, and the Dragons TTT today, is that pent up demand is in full effect in participation sports!


Not only are so many people ‘trapped’ in Hong Kong (I could think of worse places to be!), but with the Dragons TTT so well-established, it’s now become a fixture on the calendar. Today several of the strong local HK teams showed up to race too. It’s great to see what was previously just an ‘expat’ event become a truly Hong Kong event.


First of all a massive congratulations to Team One Direction, possibly the only team today to have the worst name, but the best riders. They not only won the race, but obliterated the course record, with a team time of 1.02.35, with the fastest individual times recorded by future Olympian triathlete Oscar Coggins and super athlete, turned male model: Mat Pears with a time of 1.02.32. (The previous record had stood since 2010 held by the late Colin Robertson with a time of 1.04.59, which he did as an ITT - and still remains the ITT record, for now.)


Huge congratulations must also go to the Quarantine Queens, which unlike One Direction had not only the best name, but also the best female riders on the course. Hong Kong’s female cycling community has been growing steadily, inspired no doubt by our track cycling olympic success, and it was great to see four of Hong Kong’s strongest age group cyclists in one team. The Quarantine Queens delivered a collective time of 1.17.12, with a new female course record of 1.17.00


And of course, massive kudos to everyone who showed up. A total of 26 teams registered and appeared. It’s the biggest we have had at any event, and thanks to everyone for keeping spaced out in groups of 50 or less and well-separated as we lined up to race.


Usually, in these race reports, I describe all the teams. We are lucky to have so many admirable athletes, colourful characters and such a great spirit in our cycling and triathlon community in Hong Kong, it’s great to share the passion that I see every day in our little world. But with such a big turnout, I won’t be able to do justice to everyone (so my apologies in advance). 


And though we had quantity, there was no dilution in quality with a formidable line up as usual, with talent and ability stretching right through all the teams. Aside from the winners: One Direction (Tom Elliott, Mat Pears, Oscar Coggins and Kris Guns) and the Quarantine Queens (Lenny Leung, Chi Ngan Chow, Wynnie Fung and Yann Kai Oh), we had two strong teams put forward by Unfound, as defending champions. Unfound Team A consisted of seasoned campaigners like Paul ‘Mads’ Madden (holder of the Strava ITT record of 1.06), Peter Hope, Dan Falconer and Alex ‘excuses’ Stopps. Their B-team was no less impressive including Adil Zizi, who crushed the SIRs Peak TT last week, and was participating in his very first TTT; Steven Baker, the adult in the room and a guide to the youngsters; and Jan Maus and Gregor Vand, relatively new to Hong Kong’s cycling scene. Both Unfound teams had some impressive talent and they duly delivered.


Also among the leading teams were three local Hong Kong teams - the formidable 6UO (an offshoot of the massive Holiday Racing Cycling Club) with Chris Liu, Brian Tam, Leo Lam and Barry Lin; the ominously named 4WKG and the Success - EZR club (another well established HK team), who also sent an A and a B squad.


To round it off, we also had the Lantau Hooligans. A new combine of super strong, extremely likeable and immensely talented South Africans and pilots, who call the hills and trails of rugged South Lantau their playground.


In the next category down, there was also some great talent and experience on show. Highlights included the politically correct Unfound SIRs Double Duo featuring the aussie from London Ben Allen, the Scotsman from HK Andrew Sharkey, the Spanish-speaking Frenchman Philippe Cosentino and the MTB king James Sutton. It was also great to see Project 852’s finest on show with founder Rupert Griffiths, the soon-to-be-departing Guy Thomas, last minute stand in Luke Jones and the young super fast rider (and runner) Andrea Cloarec. Among the several Dragons teams lining up, Paul Wright’s D2 looked particularly impressive, with Greg ‘master of Zwift’ Toole, Niek ‘the look’ Niens and Steve ‘I’d rather be rowing’ Winbur posing a threat.


From the SIRs, we had the gentlemen of the club, including His Royal Highness Bo Kratz, Steven ‘time defying’ Bemet, Viv ‘I named my son after a triathlete’ Varadarajan, and Craig 'yippee I don’t have to travel anymore’ Hudleston.


We also had three homegrown teams from Lantau including two from the Lantau Buffalos, and one from the LTF (Lantau’s Finest) Old Boys, whose leader Gary Halsall is another ageing campaigner but regularly tears strips off the youngsters.


Finally in the more relaxed category - who had the privilege of going first - it was wonderful to see the WOW team (‘Women on Wheels), a mixed team, two teams from Adrian Halkes Chickenfish club, and several hastily cobbled together teams with people who met each other for the first time. When you decide to enter a team event and you don’t know any members of your team, until you show up for the race, then for me you really have captured the spirit of Dragons TTT. Just have a go and see what happens.


As for the race itself, it was a true test of teamwork and speed endurance. The conditions were perfect, with a light wind, and with 60 second time gaps between each team, bunching was kept to a minimum.


In truth, One Direction were formidable. Though second-to-last to leave ahead of the defending champions Team Unfound A, they were relentless. Their pursuers on the starting grid were not able to get anywhere near them, and several teams in front would have first heard, and then seen them whiz by. 


A special mention must also go to the Lantau Hooligans, whose sheer enthusiasm is infectious!. Though an almost full 5 minutes behind One Direction, they put in a smashing performance, and would have surprised many - coming second team overall. Even more notable, they were all on road bikes, beating several teams who were on full TT bike mode. One to watch in particular is the irrepressible Jan-Hendrik Pretorius, whose youth, speed and power is a sight to see. Look forward to seeing more amazing performances from Jan Hendrik and the rest of the Lantau Hooligans in the future.

"Social Distanced" Summer Series 2020 Event

posted 12 Jun 2020, 22:10 by HK Dragons Triathlon Club

What a great morning to restart our Dragons summer series mini triathlons ! We saw a good turnout of around 20 competitors and welcomed some new faces . Big shout out to debutants @Dara @Laura Normand @Steve winbur @Sarah W @Laurent Benhacine !

There we are few of the usual "cock-ups" with the timing and the final heat was done in 2 waves - just to make interpreting the results more challenging! 😁

To save me trying to mess around with the spreadsheet, here are the adjustments:

Nick Niens should b 6:28 swim time in heat 2

In heat 3, athletes 1 to 8 and 10 started with the clock the rest can subtract 1:15 from their time.

Coggins Crushes Dragons Race to Enlightenment 2020

posted 3 May 2020, 21:42 by HK Dragons Triathlon Club   [ updated 4 May 2020, 18:19 ]

In what was the strangest Dragons Race to Enlightenment in the seven years we have been holding it, we got yet again a new male winner (no male participant has ever won this race twice), a new sub-51 minute time for the course and a great turnout.


Due to the continued social distancing rules imposed following the Covid-19 outbreak, participants were this time encouraged to start when they wanted within a four day period (including Buddha’s Birthday, Labour Day and the weekend), and to go in groups of no more than four.


Oscar Coggins, a leading light in the Hong Kong triathlon scene, and expected to represent our Special Administrative Region in the Tokyo Olympics next year, smashed the 20km course up to the Buddha, in a time of 50 minutes and 56 seconds, and becomes only the second person (on Strava at least) to have posted a time under 51 minutes. 


Yann Kai Oh, who has dominated the women’s age group cycling scene in Hong Kong for several years, won the women’s race for the third time (previously winning in 2014 & 2018) fighting off some strong challenges.


In total, we had 44 people completing the course on Strava with times of 90 mins and faster, and a record 10 people posting sub-60 minute times - more than at any other previous edition of the race.


On Day One, (Buddha’s birthday, 30 April), Luke Jones, the super tall South African, lay down the marker, delivering a 55.11, and burying himself so deeply that he did not  even notice the traffic lights on the course, as he smashed his way to the top.


He was chased pretty much all the way by Toby Chu and Cosmo Richards who also posted sub 58 minute times, with a second group, comprising Rob Turnbull, Guy Thomas and Anthony Lam all coming in, in or around the hour mark. Someone had to set the targets to beat and these were the ones to beat!


Day Two (1 May), saw the biggest turnout and the emergence of the ladies. Kris Guns, the current Dragon King of the Mountains, set off at a relentless pace, smashing the 2.75km 11%-average Beast climb in just over 13 minutes - among the fastest of the weekend and continuing to drive hard on the rest of the course to bring home a 53.48 time for the whole course. His time was  over 80 seconds faster than Jones and cemented his well-earned reputation of one of Hong Kong’s best age group climbers. 


We also saw a very fast time from new Dragon member, Steve Winbur, who produced a top-drawer 59 minute 32 second time and was the only other sub-60 minute time on the day. Hugely impressive was also Andrew Sharkey, who chalked up a 60 minute and 33 second time - so tantalisingly close to breaking 1 hour and who admits he may have been a little conservative with the Beast (though with a Beast time of 15 minutes, it’s not shabby at all). 


This was also the day that the fast ladies emerged, including Christina Hudson, last year’s winner of the Race to Enlightenment, Mary Ho, who is enjoying some super strong cycling form at the moment, and Sarah Winbur - another brand new Dragon member and unknown quantity. Hudson delivered an emphatic statement, with a 69 minute 58 second time, a personal best  - and an indication that she was not going to give away her title easily. Ho came home with a 72 minute time, and Winbur with just under 80 minutes.


These times looked like they would stay for the rest of the weekend. Day Three (2 May) was a lot quieter. In the men’s race, some attacks were launched on Guns’ 53 minute marker, with a valiant charge by Lantau resident, Martin Bans, bringing home a classy 66 minutes, while Hudson, as leader of the women’s race remained unchallenged.


But on Day Four (3 May), it all kicked off! Someone appeared to have told the triathletes of Hong Kong - who spend their whole existence trying to maintain power for as long as possible and increasing their 60 minute Functional Threshold levels - that there was a time trial of sorts taking place, and this might be a good test for them. 


Out to play came not only Coggins, but also the old campaigner Olaf Kasten, who holds the Strava course record, and the currently indomitable Tom Elliott. Joining them was also Marcel Guethoff, who is the 2016 winner of the Race to Enlightenment , while also out there, though not at the same time was Ryan Kemp (a former South African national triathlete) and Steven Bemet, another old campaigner, who returned for his second attempt in the four days.


Flybys showed that Coggins set a soul-destroying pace up the Beast, gapping Kasten and Guethoff, with only Elliott able to hold on. From then on, Coggins kept the pace high and a steady distance from Elliott. Kasten in the meantime seemed to lose out to Guethoff to the top of the Beast, but then smashed the descent in the way that only a seriously experienced cyclist like him knows how, and actually passed Guethoff to lead the chase for Elliott and Coggins up the road.


Guethoff however was undaunted and caught up and ended passing Kasten who on a hot day, reached Shek Pik reservoir  and decided his day was done, and let Guethoff take the chase on alone.


At this point though neither Elliott or Coggins were going to be caught. The history of this race shows that it is usually very hard to pass anyone after Tai O junction and the final ascent to Buddha and so it was the case again.


Massive congratulations to Oscar Coggins, who scored a 50 minute 56 seconds time, just 11 seconds short of Kasten’s course record, and the second person to have even posted a 50 minute time. Elliott produced a cracking 52 minutes and 48 seconds, giving him second place overall, and pushing Guns into third place.


In the women’s race Oh, AKA Roinkers, left it very late with a near midday attempt in temperatures at 30 degrees to stamp her time on the course. Eyewitness accounts have her pulling away from anyone up the Beast and maintaining the pressure all along the rollers to Shek Pik, before grinding her way to the Buddha with an overall 66 minute time. It was just enough to overhaul Hudson’s 69 minutes, and to secure her place as a three-time winner of the Race - more than any other lady.


Congratulations to everyone who took part in what is a seriously tough race, on what is always a hot day! Full standings below. Course here: https://www.strava.com/segments/3616961?filter=overall

WW2 Another Great Event

posted 6 Mar 2020, 19:49 by HK Dragons Triathlon Club

Whilst much of Hong Kong was sheltering indoors hoping to avoid the COVID-19 bug, a keen group of Dragons assembled at 7 am down at South Bay for the second event in the 2020 Dragons Calendar, the Winter Warriors Duathlon/Triathlon. 

As the water looked incredibly inviting, 5 keen Dragons decided to honour the heritage of this event by returning the first leg water. Perhaps it was equally fitting that stalwart Ian Brownlee lead them around the net if not up to the transition area. Meanwhile up on the road, Tom Elliott was placing his stamp firmly on this event in spite of a truly stonking run by James Bernado. Whilst Paul Wright was always going to chase hard on the bike, James definitely took out the big improver of the event award. 

It would be remiss of me not the mention the girls putting in strong performances out there this morning. Jenny Barbour looked like she thoroughly enjoyed leaving most of the field behind her in a cracking fourth place performance. Toots also looked like she is going to be a strong performer in the coming Summer Series Events. Look out ladies! 😁

Full results are below. The first leg is listed as a swim so apologies to those who ran the 2 ks. You know who you are!

Also apologies to Tom as we had to adjust your bike and final run times and Toots as we somehow missed your first run time. Your bike time includes the first run. 

First WW for 2020

A lot of fun was had at South Bay this morning as a hale and hearty group turned up for the first Winter Warriors Duathlon of 2020.

The weather was fantastic and the spirit was good as the Duathletes made their way along a South Bay Road busy with lots of other runners and riders. 

Although Ryan and Adil were neck and neck for the first two legs, Adil really put his stamp on the last leg and pulled away convincingly from Ryan. 

Well done to all and especially are first-timers on the course including "Toots" and Lewis.

Pre Phuket Event Results

On a glorious morning by any standards in the world, a smaller than usual crew turned out to do their final race like hit out before venturing down to Phuket to test themselves in the often brutal conditions dished up there.

First out of the water, and on the run and on the, you get the picture was the unstoppable Ryan Kemp followed closely by the rest of the field. In cooler conditions bike times were fast although Deborah's time may be a little quicker than it should be given she missed a crucial detour via BWB on the way back, oops! Then on the run, Amie showed why she could become a very good triathlete if she could get those bike times down a bit, putting in the second fastest split of the day. Go girl!

Good luck to everyone heading down!

Two final dates to put in your calendar, Beer Mile, Wednesday 11 December and our end of year party Saturday December 14

Dragons Comittee

Pears and Hudson retains Dragons Individual Time Trial 2019

posted 2 Nov 2019, 00:53 by HK Dragons Triathlon Club   [ updated 2 Nov 2019, 01:38 ]

On a beautiful sunny morning, in perfect racing conditions with low humidity and even a cool breeze, 17 men and women lined up for the final Dragons ITT of the year. This race is a classic. It is two big loops of 24km each (https://www.strava.com/segments/17332182) on a virtually flat stretch of tarmac. Total elevation on the 48.1km segment is 31m - barely noticeable. There is no long hill to push up, there are no long downhills that can speed you up. This is about how much power you can put out over 48km, or about 70-80 mins. Its length means it is a course ideal for triathletes who train to hold power for hours on end than road cyclists who are trained to surge and dart, but the road cyclists have done damage here in the past. It is an interesting competition between the two disciplines. There is no hiding. Strava is the ultimate arbiter. It is on this course that souls are bared, truths are told and you realise who you really are (ok - that's a bit much, but I love a bit of drama!!.)

Every year, we race it twice - once in the Spring and once in the autumn. The Yellow Jersey is awarded to the fastest time recorded in the year by a Dragon out of the two races. From the Spring race Paul Madden delivered an amazingly quick 1.06.44 to take the Strava record (the pre-Strava record from 2011 is owned by the late Colin Robertson, with 1.05.59), but the fastest Dragon was Duncan Watt with a time of 1.12.33, while among the women, the never ageing Christina Hudson had produced a time of 1.20.14. These were the times to beat to get Yellow. 

And lining up to do so, we had some formidable athletes. From Hong Kong's Team Unfound, back from big success at the Masters Tour of Chiang Mai bike race - the big men had gathered. The slightly built, super fast Ekapak, the similarly svelte Steven Baker, the wily strategist James Sutton, the pocket rocket Philippe Cosentino, the power purist Alex 'Stoppsy' Stopps and big burly Josh Grindrod, who had come all the way from Macau. From the Dragons contingent, the formidable Mat Pears was leading the challenge, joined by the understated Nick Kearns, the 'never say die' Cora van Laer and the wonder lady Wynnie Fung. From our sister club, the cool, calm swede Bo Kratz was flying the colours of the SIRs, while we also welcomed a healthy contingent from Discovery Bay, including Dan 'Car Park Warrior' Mullins, Olivier 'Swim-Run' Baillet and his much better half Ann Lavandon. Dangerman Chris Liu rounded off the start list, a perenniial danger in all these races and dominant in HK's local racing scene.

Going off at 30 second intervals, the ladies led the way, while the fast men waited till the end, As the 2018 Yellow Jersey winner, Pears lined up last, with a crowd of Unfound favourites ahead of him.

On lap one, Grindrod from Macau had surged to the front and seemed to be gaining ground. Pears also was making up huge gains, but not without a fight as Eka, Sutton and Stopps were all fighting tooth and nail to gain ground on the chasers and the men in front of them. In the women's race, the imperious Wynnie Fung was embarrassing the mid-pack men who were fast realising that lining up behind her might not have been the smartest move. By the end of the lap, Grindrod had what seemed like a huge lead, but it was equally clear that Pears, who had started more than two minutes after him had put in some very fast riding, and recorded the fastest lap split at 33 minutes 39 seconds for 24km, with Grindrod in second at 34.17, while Eka was also taking no prisoners at 34.53. Pocket rocket Cosentino unfortunately had to retire with two punctures in quick succession and did the rest of his race in a cab.

By lap two it was clear that Wynnie was the clear favourite to take the women's race though perhaps not the yellow for the year, but the men's race was not so clear cut. Though Grindrod was out in front, Eka was chasing in second and Pears was moving fast - but not fast enough to catch them. This was going t mean that by standing at the finish and seeing who rolled in first would not be an indication of who rode fastest. Pears was clearly slowing but was Grindrod and Eka also slowing? it was tough to tell.

Strava is final and tells the story. Pears had just done enough to hold on and keep Grindrod and Eka at bay. Wynnie stormed the women's race, but was not able to overhaul Christina Hudson's previous time from the Spring race to claim Yellow. So a well deserved victory goes to Christina Hudson, who wins the women's Yellow Jersey for the second consecutive year, and to Mat Pears who beat Duncan Watt's time from the first race to also take a second consecutive Yellow Jersey.

It was a fantastic event today - as ever, and while the victors grab the limelight, there were valiant performances put in by everyone. Special mention should go in particular to our newcomers, both from Lantau: Scott Ramsay and Michael Kyprianou, who we hope loved the experience and will be back for more, Massive thanks should also go to our marshalls, all of whom would have given the competitors some serious concerns, had they decided to compete, instead of helping keep everyone safe. So big thanks to Guy Thomas for slowing down traffic coming off the #8 Highway, to 'Vivdog' Vivek Varadajaran for standing at the service road entry and exit point and facing off against the construction lorries, to Nick Adamus and Adrian Halkes for blocking buses at the Pak Mong village, and of course to Kris 'trippel' Guns, who made me ride at 350 watts because apparently it is good for me!!

Another Great Morning for a Race!

posted 18 Oct 2019, 21:37 by HK Dragons Triathlon Club

I don't imagine that there were too many Dragons members in bed this morning. 
This is the time of year when Hong Kong puts on its best weather for any form of activity you can do outside. Given that events like the Moontrekker were taking place overnight and many were taking the opportunity of getting some challenging hill rides into their legs ahead of the Taiwan KOM next Friday, it was little surprise that we had a small but able field for the last of the Summer Series Training Events at Shek O Beach.
Steven Bemet put his stamp on this event early and demonstrated that he is going to be in good form for Phuket. 
Although Benjamin Darde relishes running down athletes with his speedy legs. Should Benjamin ever find the time to work on his swim and ride, we are all going to be in big trouble!
Special Mention also to Dave Gibb who looked strong in a return to the 3 discipline event for the first time since his Phuket accident last year kept him out of action for a while. 

All times and Places are on the spreadsheets below.
