There seems to be a tread to have Clydesdale division in triathlon races. Is this division needed, does it add value to the sport and should it be given Kona slots?

Age grouper of the week

Katya Meyers for being the last name on the results page! Although, in a time of 11:33:39, she must have had a good race.
   
We also want to take away Jim Beuselinck’s age grouper award and give it to Mark Stenning. Mark came second to Jim in IMUK.

High 5 Keeping you swim cap on

1.  Get a hair cut if you have long hair. That was John’s hint for Bevan.

2.  Use a Silicone cap, the extra money is worth it. Plus make sure it has a grip around the bottom edge.

3.  Have dry hair when you put the cap on.

4.  Pull the cap right down so it covers the front of the forehead and the ears.

5.  Use a push start instead of diving in. This way the cap will stay on.

High 5 for change a flat tyre!

1.  Check the outside of the tyre for any objected that could have caused the flat.

2.  Keep the leavers close to each when putting them under the tyre.

3.  Find the hole by pumping up the tube once you have got it out. Then check inside the wheel at the same place.

4.  Put the new valve in the wheel and then put a little bit of air in tube before putting the tyre back on.

5.  Be careful not to pinch the tube when using the leaver to put the tyre back on.
