Congratulations to Sean Williams on a super race in Sunday.. with a fantastic 2nd place overall.
Wight Tri member, Sean Williams took on the Rempstone Roast MTB off road triathlon, held near Corfe Castle, Swanage. It was a cold chilly start, for the 2.3 mile runs and 11.5 mile bike course, and with the bike course taking place on exposed heathland, it was going to be a cold race.
Sean completed the first run in 15:38 and in 4th position, 43 secs behind the leader, even with taking it easy with a calf strain. Using his new 29er MTB bike, Sean posted the second fastest bike split of 35:23 and was soon into 2nd place on the final run. A solid run of 16:40, saw Sean finish in 2nd place overall, just 61 secs behind the winner, in 1 hour 7mins 40 secs.
