Dragons SSTR5 – Results

posted 25 Sept 2012, 06:42 by HK Dragons Triathlon Club
No guessing that everyone has races coming up in this latter part of the year, as we had about 44 people turnout for a gloriously cool morning of racing in the SSTR5 at Shek-O.

Amongst the regular faces, it was nice to see so many new faces. So, on behalf of the committee and all club members, welcome to the Dragons and we hope you enjoyed your mornings racing (and post race coffee and brownies) and we’ve sparked your interest to pursue your triathlon career with the mighty Hong Kong Dragons

With 40+ athletes out on the course there was lots of close racing throughout the whole field, as everyone was trying to close the gap on the person in front of them, or holding off an attack from know what I mean!

The SSTR ‘League Table’ is filling up and we only have one more race to go on 20-October. Remember, it is your fastest 12 heats that count towards the final rankings. I think as it stands now, there are 14 people who will make the cut of having completed a minimum of 12 heats in this Summer Series – the Heat is on! Make the next 4 training weeks count.

And on a personal note, it was very nice to hear a rendition of happy birthday on the beach with such varying pitch tones and lyrics
J Thanks to everyone, especially my gorgeous wife who I think had a hand in orchestrating some of this. And I'm still eating chocolate cake – clearly a plan to slow me down as you can all see what a threat I'm becoming...haha.
