🏊‍♂️🏊🏻‍♀️Swim Hat Amnesty🏊‍♂️🏊🏻‍♀️
We planned to collect and recycle the swim hats from our Triathlon, however sadly there wasn’t much call for this on the day 🤣
Plan B - over the next few weeks we will be having a swim hat amnesty. Please dig out your old hats and bring them along to a club session or give them to Lesley who has kindly offered to collect them on the weekends.

More great results from Cardiff today. Despite the poor conditions the adults received today in Broad Haven, water conditions were flat at Maindy Pool, Cardiff this morning as 10 members travelled to the 5th round of the Tristars Series. Despite a growing stiff breeze conditions were great for the field of about 250 strong. 1st to go was Sion Thomas in the T1 race. It was really close between the top 3. Sion had the 2nd quickest swim split of the day and managed to stay in contact with the top 2 boys on the bike to run into the finish in 3rd place for the second race in a row. In the T2 race Holly John was our only female in this category. Winning her swim wave easily placed her in the top 5. Onto the bike and Holly moved up further with the 3rd fastest split before posting the fastest run split to finish a fantastic 2nd. Her best race to date - well done Holls! In the boys race another dominant swim-bike leg gave Dewi Thomas a lead of over 2 minutes onto the run to win his second race of the year with 2 wins and a 2nd place in his 3 races so far. Jacob Thomson finished next. With the largest field of the day (39 T2Boys) Jacob had another impressive swim and a more impressive bike leg and despite finding the run hard came into the finish line in 12th place. Next in was Harry Griffiths in 21st place. Harry dug really deep on the bike which is his strongest discipline and finished strongly on the run. Aaron Bowen was next, finishing in 26th place.
Eleanor White was our only T3 girl and despite being in her 1st year as a T3 athlete Eleanor was well in contention for a medal from the onset after a great swim. Being a smaller and younger athlete than the other girls meant she lost some time on the bike but gained time back as she posted the 2nd quickest run split to get within a whisker of a podium place - just 2 seconds off 3rd! Well done Ellie! In the boys race both Ifan Bowen and Ethan Hinton represented the club. It was Ifan home first. Up against a very strong field of 24 boys Ifan, like Eleanor, lost time to the bigger and older boys on the bike but another blistering run (4th fastest) enabled Ifan to take a well deserved 7th - and the only 1st year T3 boy in the top 10. Ethan was slightly blighted with a couple of issues during the race with trouble with his bike shoes and an agonising stitch of the run affected his race and unfortunately was DQ'd (reasons unknown). Gutsy performance though Ethan who kept going strong despite in obvious agony.
Finally we had Megan Thomson in the Youth race. Megan dominated the race from the outset and posted the quickest swim, bike and transition splits together with the 2nd fastest run to win by a clear minute. Under pressure on the bike with 2nd place tucking in behind, Megan put in couple of hard bike laps to gain a gap and finally break clear of second and give her enough of a buffer onto the run to win.

MIKE'S BIKES PEMBROKESHIRE COAST TRIATHLON - SWIM CANCELLED

Following an on-site water safety meeting we have reluctantly decided to cancel the swim and implement the duathlon contingency. See yesterday's post for details.

Given the blustery winds we would also strongly advise a sensible choice of wheels...

MIKE'S BIKES PEMBROKESHIRE COAST TRIATHLON - SWIM UPDATE

The forecast sea conditions for tomorrow are causing us some concern. Your safety is the most important thing about tomorrow's event.

There will be a swim safety meeting at 8am tomorrow morning, involving the Race Director, Swim Safety Lead, Lead Kayakers & Welsh Triathlon Technical Officials. Based on the forecast at that time, we will make a decision to either continue with the swim, or cancel it and implement our duathlon contingency (see attached images for more information).

Whatever the decision, this will be communicated on Facebook by 830am. If the contingency is implemented, the first wave of runners will be set off at the original race start time of 1130am. Compulsory race briefing will remain at 11am in the transition area.

RELAY TEAMS: if we move to a duathlon, any one of your team may do the first run, it doesn't have to be your (now reluctant) swimmer.

Please note that no questions posted on here will be answered, please wait for more information between 8am and 830am.

Thank you, and sleep well. 🤞
