*NEW: Cotswolds 113 results – 16th June

An early start but has to be one of the best middle distance triathlons – The Cotswolds 113.  12 MVH-ers turned up for the 06:20hrs swim wave at the Cotswolds Water Park and went for it – big time.

A fast bike course encouraged a quick run.  Weather perfect.  Temperature – just right.  And all in time to go to the pub at lunch time.  Perfect!

The results are here.  Click for the big screen version.

Bosworth Triathlon Results 1st June 2014

Bosworth 4

Bosworth Triathlon proved to be a happy day for MVH athletes. 14 members took on the Sprint and Olympic distances as part of the club championship competition. Staggeringly 12 achieved a top 3 age group finish. It was a superb day for racing, clear skies, no wind but the promise of a rising temperatures added to the event. With the first wave starting at 0915 followed by well scheduled consecutive waves the transition area was always busy but never manic. The murky, weed infested waters of the lake were soon navigated without sight of the shoals of huge Carp that inhabit them. The 150m run to T1 was a little long but time enough to strip the wetsuit. It was here that competitors had their first glance at the huge club support that had turned out on race day. With a couple of dozen family and friends already making a healthy noise they were soon joined by the sizeable Sunday club riders. The club colours were well and truly on display and were certainly the most visible throughout the morning.

The fast bike circuit had little in the way of obstacles with a good surface, little traffic and was well marshalled. The absence of any wind meant it was fast times being recorded for many. T2 soon departed and 2 or 4 laps of the 2.5k lumpy trail circuit followed, in parts solid hardcore in others mud holes and boggy. For the most part a decent trail was evident. The run in to the finish was a spectators dream, with good views all round. The staggered starts meant a steady flow of finishers throughout the morning and as MVHers began to sight the finish line clapping, cheering and shouts of encouragement were reverberating around the finish line. Many PBs were claimed for this event and its easy to see why. The organisation was excellent, the course flat and fast, the weather perfect and the club support probably the best so far. A great day out for the club, with 12 podium places for the Age groupers. Brilliant.
