Race 1 of the 2017-18 Duathlon Series got off to a warm, dry start – and with no wind! What was going on?! Thankfully our friends in the Highways Dept. managed to save the day with some last-minute traffic lights plonked on the Coast Road. No-one minded one bit as they had a little wait at the red lights, and there wasn’t any chuntering – no Sireee.
Despite this, there was some great racing with Mark Benson returning once more from Tri Lakeland to claim the men’s win, from UTC’s Kie and Mike . In a very keenly contested women’s race, UTC’s Amy Whelan came out on top with a strong second run to edge Lucy into 2nd.
All the results below.
Roll on 26 November for Race 2: the Winter Warmer…
