8 competitors, and Kim and Nicky who, preferring not to cycle, jogged around the course as duathletes sped past them! Young Dave shot off from the start, determined to hang on to his trophy, leaving Richard H, Pat and Richard J in his wake; Guy and Tom were just visible through the dust. Dave kept a comfortable cushion throughout the cycling, though Richard H pursued hard. Richard J saw discretion as the better part of valour, and withdrew after the cycling, to Guy’s chagrin, since he only decided to do the 3 cycle laps ( instead of the mountain bikers’ 2 ) to challenge Richard over the 2nd running lap. Dave completed the circuits in 54 minutes 12, followed by Richard H in 56.27 and Pat in 57.41. Guy followed in 61.14. Tom completed his mountain bike course in 54.50. Richard H achieved the fastest cycle lap of the evening ( 7 min 12 ), and Dave the fastest run ( on his second lap ).
