Jim takes Silver in the National Duathlon Championships.

Jim Fell, Steve Hope and Katie Tasker competed in the National Duathlon
Championships at Bedford Aerodrome; with Jim finishing 2nd in his Age
Group, to come away with the Silver Medal. Jim had a very consistent
race and received a deserved Silver medal.

The distances were:

run 6.25 miles.
bike 24 miles.
run 3 miles.

Katie had a good race in the Junior Duathlon, which was also the 1st
leg of the Junior Super Series. A class field had assembled, with a
number of national Champions racing. Katie finished 15th in 32:36.

The distances were:

run 1.5 miles.
bike 6.25 miles.
run 0.75 miles

"A strong opening run saw Katie enter T1 in contention and with a trade
mark rapid transition she was able to make good progress up the field
on the 1st half of the bike. She made further headway but as the field
splintered she found herself doing large parts of the course on her
own. Over the short second run Katie lost a couple of places to finish
15th. This bodes well for the National Qualification event in
Loughborough next week".

Claire Steels competed in her first professional bike race at the
weekend. Claire has joined the Fusion RT Velo Performance women's team
for this season and on a hilly course performed well to help lead out
the team's sprinter Jennifer Holden, and then claim a magnificent third
place overall herself.

It was a good day for the team in the Hatherleigh Women's Road Race on
a hilly course with a final uphill sprint, and a perfect sprint launch
which played to Claire's strengths.

"The team smashed it today at Hatherleigh RR, taking 1st (Jenny
Holden), 3rd (Claire Steels) and Claire also taking 3 of the 4
