Yet another fantastic mornings racing at Lydd saw wins for ……..

Joel Hodges in the mens category and Lilja Dottesmir  in the ladies .The 19 (yes – 19 !) competitors were greeted with a flat calm lake (water temp 17.5) , very fast flat bike course and an equally flat run course , chip timing for instant results and a fully signed and marshalled event .Add to that a full prize list with trophies for overall and age group winners and you can see why everyone there was just a little bit puzzled as to why ,with hundreds of triathletes not more than a hour away , they were so few ? As its our normal Bodiam date which sees around 300 compete every year it would have been reasonable to expect maybe 25% of that number to race at Lydd , I know that the scenery isn’t as good but its still a Triathlon !

Whats important though is that everyone there enjoyed the morning and just to cap it off we layed on a free BBQ/Drinks at the jetty to say thanks for supporting us – appreciated by all .
