NEIL TANDY WINS KIMBOLTON. Ros Goatly 1st and 3rd in AG. Georgina 1st in AG. Sean and Caroline 2nd in AG. Katie and Annette 3rd in AG. Chris and Richard complete IM distance.

285 competitors completed the Kimbolton triathlon on Sunday
with PACTRAC's Neil Tandy smashing the field coming home in FIRST place
by NEARLY 2 MINUTES. 10 PACTRACers competed with 3 finishing in the top
14.

Neil was only 8 seconds down after the swim, but had some fast
transitions, was the 2nd fastest on the bike, and there was never any
doubt who the winner would be. This is Neil's first overall win in an
open event, and is testament to not only Neil's emergence on the
triathlon scene, but to PACTRAC coach Dave Patmore-Hill's talented
stable of athletes.
