“CLARKEY” ON FIRE AT FIRST DUATHLON EVENT
A great turn out for the first duathlon event with 14 competitors turning out on what must have been one of the coldest races on record. However the temperature soon increased as the course was burnt up by Matt Clarke, Graham Cowan and Pete Goy who all posted sub 30 minute rides. Not far behind were Jack Goy (watch out dad) Gary Martin, and new member Will Davies who all posted respectable times. Special mention must go to veteran competitors Craig Marriott and Jules O Donnell-one a wiley old timer and the other a Grimsby duathlon ‘virgin’- you can decide which is which!! The female section was won by Rhea Cox with an impressive sub 35 min ride and she will provide some stiff competition for Tracey Brown and Karen Hames in the next few races when the run element is added. Special thanks must go to Alan Cook for his marshalling and ‘sweeping’ duties, Tim Moss for marshalling and setting out the signs and Gary Howden for marshalling at the infamous Gary Thomas corner on the sharp turn back towards Wold Newton. Next event is a week on Thursday 25th April. It is crucial that we get as much practice in before the clash with Wolds Vets next month a fixture that we must not lose!
