The Sunshine Coast Triathlon Academy / Hybrid Concepts Australia Athletes were in action at Bribie Island Triathlon Series Race # 3 and at Hamilton Wheelers Cycle Club Criterium at Lakeside.
On Saturday we had 6 SCTA athletes head down to the Criterium at the Lakeside Raceway Circuit for a 40 min or 50 min (depending on the grade) effort around the hilly course. Taj Jones and Jake Hynes broke away with 2 laps to go, which they thought was the last lap. Both were riding very strongly in B2.
In C1 Lachlan Sinclair was on the attack for most of the 40 min with Elliot Gray and Claudio Cellie. It is great to sit in as a Coach (still hurt tho) and watch how the juniors are riding against some seasoned competitors and on restricted gears as well. Well done Juniors doing a great job. It is a great course and some awesome racing down there if anyone is interested. I will be adding this into the program on a regular basis. You do however need to be a member of Cycling Australia.
On Sunday we had 4 SCTA athletes compete at the Bribie Island Triathlon Series Race # 3. Never from the action is always Mel Charlton (30-34 Years) with a 2nd place and just missing the podium in the same category was Jessica Lee.
In the Short Course we had Tilly Barret (12-15 Years) take out the win while Ryan Marsh wasn't far off the boys in 5th (12-15 Years). Well done to all that raced.
