Dragons Winter Warriors Duathlon

In hindsight, it was not the wisest decision to hold the first Dragons Winter Warriors event of the Year at the weekend before the Lunar New Year. It meant that there were depleted numbers on show today, with only four starters out of the massed ranks of Dragons who usually do this race. Seems most were either off on holiday, or committed elsewhere. We did however have an additional late entrant and a couple of spectators who also made it down to cheer us on, and even a marshall to keep us safe.

It was perfect conditions for a run-bike-run. The temperature was 18 degrees, dry and overcast, with pollution levels mercifully low.

With no timing device today as the ever reliable iPad app we use was not available, detailed stats are not included in this race report, but the rankings are below. 

Special mentions to Paul 'no longer full time athlete' Wright for taking the honours of the 2km run-20km bike- 4km run and a warm welcome to new Dragon Gerald Posthuma, who put on an impressive display, coming back from last position to take third slot on the final run. A very special thanks to Cora Van Laer who interrupted her 100k ride to shiver at the top of South Bay Road to block the traffic.

Rankings:

Paul Wright
Sheel Kohli
Gerald Posthuma
Adrian Lydiard
Jeff Parker (bike only)

Thanks also to the wonderful Vernette Lydiard for being our most regular spectator and Phil Gann for making an appearance at the start to wave us off and accompany us on the first lap of the bike leg.

It's great to get the season started again!
