Sunshine Coast Tri Academy / Hybrid Concepts Australia Athletes were in action at Hervey Bay 100, Kingscliff Triathlon and Race # 4 of the SCCC Summer Crit Series. With all 3 events held in very hot and humid conditions, the heat was always going to be a factor and we saw that across the board. There were some PB's and lots of category wins across the board.
The Girls had a day out up in Hervey Bay where they dominated the races they competed in. Meg Roberts, Macey Roberts and Finn Barlow all won their categories and also took out the race wins as well. Rachel Cullen took out her category win as well. Kirra Seidel battled hard in the heat to come away with 2nd overall Female after leading off the bike. She was run down by Kym who had won the 2 previous titles. Katie Kenny was back on the podium once again with 2nd (40-44) after deciding not to enter WA Ironman. Brad Teys (45-49) and Wade Scougall (40-44) just missed the podium with a 4th place each.
Down at Kingscliff we had Jessica Lee do a PB on the way to 12th (30-34) and great to see Rob Wilson back with a 12th also in (40-44).
On Friday the SCTA juniors and Big Dog (Kev Hammond) went down to Caloundra for Race # 4 of the Sunshine Coast Cycling Club Summer Crit Series. With some hot and fast racing on the Friday evening. All raced well and learnt some valuable lessons in draft legal racing. Well done to Taj Jones (B Grade) and Elliot Gray ( C Grade) on taking home some money. Well done to all that raced over the weekend

A very successful race weekend with 5 Queensland Championships medals and 22 podiums from the Sunshine Coast Triathlon Academy / Hybrid Concepts Australia Athletes from the Queensland Aquathlon Champs, Kawana Open Swim and Round 3 of the Queensland Tri series all held at Lake Kawana.
It was always going to be a tough weekend especially for all that lined up in the 3 races over 2 days, but all the SCTA / HCAUS athletes competed magnificently with some awesome results from everyone. As a Coach you can only ask for your athletes to do their best and I see it week in week out with the racing that they are doing. We are seeing huge improvements in each race and seeing the progression from these "Training Races" as we move forward to the major races coming up.
There are a lot of great results below with 22 podiums as 1st x 9 (2 x State Champions), 2nd x 6 (1 x Sliver State Champs) 3rd x 7 ( 2 x Bronze State Champs) and 4th x 8, 5th x 7, 6th x 3 that were just out of medal contention. So as you can see another successful weekend.
Female Junior Scholarship recipient Savannah Wayner started the proceedings with a State Champion title in 16-19 Years Female and 3rd OPEN Female, while Male Junior Scholarship recipient Jake Hynes was State Silver medallist 16-19 Years, 8th Open Male and race winner for 1500m Lake Swim. Kevin Hammond continued his dominance of the Clydesdale division with his 3rd win this season. Fin Barlow was the fastest overall in the Mini kids Aquathlon beating the boys home and taking out the State Champs 7-9 Years. Great to see the inaugural SCTA / HCAUS Junior scholarship recipient Michael Hooper back training and racing with a dominant performance in the 20-24 years male and 11th overall. Maddison Dutton (20-24), Mel Charlton (30-34) and Tahlea Corcoran (U/14 Enticer) also claim category wins.
Taj Jones (14-15) bounced back in the Tri to record 2nd as did Jemma Hynes (7-9), Romy wolstencroft (16-19) and Anastasia Heikkila (14-15) while Matt Nixon (7-9) and Macey Roberts (12-13) both took Bronze State Medals at Aquathlon. Paris Shield (14-15) and Lachlan Sinclair (14-15) 3rd in the triathlon.
A special mention to Elliot Gray (5th 14-15) backed up in the triathlon after a crash on Thursday. He was a bit stiff and sore but still gave it his all. Well done to all that competed and results below

This weekend we saw the Sunshine Coast Triathlon Academy / Hybrid Concepts Australia Juniors in action at the Queensland All Schools Triathlon Championships and we had Maureen Cummings travel to Canberra for the Jackie Fairweather Memorial Triathlon.
Still fresh in our minds is the loss of Jackie Fairweather a year ago, in which we saw an event named in her honour on the weekend. Good friend and fellow competitor Maureen Cummings travelled to the Nations Capital in Canberra to remember a great friend and also to compete in her honour. Maureen had a great day in which saw her take out the 50-54 Years female title and 126th overall.
At Lake Kawana we saw the next generation of juniors in action at the Qld All Schools Tri Champs also doubling as a selection race for a lot of the regional school teams to compete at the Qld Schools Champs at Hervey Bay early next year. The charge from SCTA athletes was run by Taj Jones 2nd (Intermediate Boys) and SCTA / HCAUS Junior Scholarship recipient Jake Hynes 3rd (Senior Boys). Both boys had great races and improving all the time against opposition that have been around for numerous years.
Romy Wolstencroft 6th (Senior Female) led the charge on the girls side with limited training due to a trip to Europe over the past 6 weeks. Finn Barlow 7th (kids Aquathlon Female) had another great race but lost valuable time trying to get her shoes on that cost her a higher placing.
All the juniors showed great improvement and with the depth coming thru the Junior ranks at SCTA are looking very strong for the future her on the Sunshine Coast. Congratulations to all that competed. Very happy and Proud Coach

Another huge weekend of racing for Sunshine Coast Tri Academy / Hybrid Concepts AustraliaAthletes with Noosa Multisport Festival and World Xterra Championships in Maui.
Firstly to Noosa where we started off with the Run Swim Run on the Wednesday then the 1000m Swim on the Friday, then rolled into the Superkids Tri on the Saturday and then the big one on Sunday for the 33rd Noosa Triathlon and first time at Main Beach for the swim. Was perfect conditions for racing and we saw some fast times.
Our Podium placegetter in 3rd was Kev Hammond (Clydesdale 90-99kg). Just missing the podiyum in 4th was Malin Olsson (35-39), Open Mixed Team SCTA Juniors (Savannah / Taj / Jake) in 4th, Maureen Cummings 5th (50-54) and in 7th Melissa Charlton (30-34). It was great to see Bonnie Atherton back racing with an 8th (Open). Well done to all that raced over the Noosa weekend.
Onto Maui where Brodie Gardner lined up in the World Xterra Champs in the Professional category. Always hard going to a World Champs but also on a course for the first where it was highly technical and muddy on the bike course. Brodie did the best he could and came away 22nd Professional and 3rd Aussie. He will be better for the experience and looking forward to going back again next year.
