It's Spring (well according to the calendar anyway!) and time for the Poly triathletes to polish up their bikes, buy some new lock laces and get their tri suits out of the dark cupboards where they've lain all Winter. This report of their activities over the Bank Holiday weekend comes courtesy of Neil Dick.
Cracking turnout at Ashington. At least 13 men and 6 women. First man home for us was Pablo Samuel and first lady was Jennifer Rees both of whom beat last year's times on a rather windy day.

You may also have heard about a race that two of our number took part in in Spain on Sunday. Katherine Davis and David Quinn represented the GB in their age groups, David just one week after completing the VLM, hard core. there's not much to add to what's already been all over FB other than to add the congratulations of this page.

If Katherine and David have inspired any of you to try and have a go at representing GB, and I hope they have, then give it a go, you may surprise yourself. Go to the British Triathlon age Group page here for all you need to know; https://www.britishtriathlon.org/gb-teams/age-group,
