Mallorca 70.3 and gibside fruitbowl

Many congratulations to Garry Walker for an excellent performance at this weekend's Challenge Mallorca 70.3  Only Garry's 2nd half-iron tri, this new event was serving as the European Middle Distance Triathlon Championships for 2014 - allowing for a third outing of the GB colours for Garry this year! In brutal conditions (+30°C temperatures leading to many athletes requiring saline treatment by the finish), Garry finished in an excellent 112th overall/ 11th in age group, finishing his season on a definite high. Look out for his race report with more details of the day, coming soon :-)

Also racing this weekend were Gavin Sword and Steve Williams at the Gibside Fruitbowl. Gavin put in an excellent performance to come 28th overall - up 14 places on last year - and second in his age group on this demanding course. Steve Williams was under physios orders to take it easy, using this as an opportunity to test out his recovery from this year's ankle injury, and finished safely in 44th in his age group.

Well done all!
