COOL weather prevented the Orange Cycle and Triathlon Club from holding their first triathlon of the season as planned.
It was decided to remove the swim leg from the event at Lake Canobolas, but this didn’t deter the almost 100 participants.
In the long external event, Dave Selwood was first across the finish line in one hour, four minutes and 24 seconds.
Phil Tudor, who is almost twice as old as Selwood, pushed his younger rival all the way and finished just over a minute behind (1:05.27) in second.
Jacob Evans, enjoying his first season of triathlon, was third in 1:07.07.
The women played out a great battle in the long external event.
Janet Martin led early before Jess Richards passed her on the bike.
Martin came back in the run to finish first in 1:09.26, beating out Richards (1:10.20) and a fast-finishing Estelle Dean (1:10.30).
Dean had the fastest 5km run of the women in 21 minutes.
In the mid external event, Jack Bilton (36.09) was first across the line and Marnie Lenehan (39.59) was the first female.
Tom Tudor (27.18) was fastest in the short external race, and Alicia Ross (27.56) was the first female home.
Millie Lenehan (26.53) was the first person home in the short internal race and Blair Ward (30.20) was the first male.
Arthur Locke was the fastest in the junior race in 10.33, while Sophie Martin (11.53) was the first female home.
The OCTC’s next event is the Cowra Inter-Club on Sunday, December 1.
