It was a busy weekend for a select group of athletes representing Belvoir Tri Club at events both home and away.

Another early season race for a small group of Belvoir Tri Club athletes saw Adam Jackson take third place overall in 1hr 6min 29sec at the RAF Scampton Sprint Duathlon run by Lincoln Tri.

Joining Adam were Kevin Gench and Wayne France, who was recovering from a recent illness, who came home in 14th (1:12:30) and 34th (1:26:41) places respectively.

Elsewhere in the region, Paul Kerr and Louise George flew the flag at Belvoir Half-marathon, with Paul finishing in a very respectable 17th place with a finishing time of 1:21:46. Louise George recorded 2:11:09.

Adding a continental twist to the weekend, Tim Dawson took to the famous pavé of the Paris-Roubaix road race course when he took part in the Paris-Roubaix Challenge on Saturday.

He covered the 168km distance with 52km of cobbled sections in 6hr 50 min in a field of 4,500 riders.

Tim said: “It was amazing to get there and be amongst so many riders, and then see Peter Pain from Witham Wheelers on the start line.”

l Belvoir Tri’s summer schedule gets underway in May with a focus on road riding and open water swimming. The club’s Saturday morning beginners’ swim coaching started last week with six swimmers of varying abilities taking to the water.

If you feel you are confident in the water but would like to be able to improve your freestyle technique in a safe and friendly environment, then pop along, the session is open to members and non-members alike.
