The first Brighton Tri Club Novice Cup points were claimed at Haywards Heath Sprint Triathlon this past Sunday, with some superb performances all round.
The overall picture was one for the vets, with trophies collected by Rachel Perry (1st Female Vet), Paul McCarthy (3rd Male Vet) and Tina Billet (3rd female Vet) and some other very good performances besides.
Beyond that, club interest was in the Novice Cup, which rewards those members who are in either their 1st or 2nd year competing in triathlon and this event represented the first opportunity to pick up club points. With those members who raced but having competed for more than 2 years removed from the equation, those currently occupying the top spots are:
After 1 round:
- James Houlston (Male Senior)
- Mat Commons (Male Vet)
- Phoebe Lebrecht (Female Senior)
Also 'in the points' were Andrew Pinker, Marie Lynch, Mark Templeton and Seamus McAlister.
Congratulations also to our other members who raced, Declan Rocks, Tina Billet, Mik Onions, Rachel Perry and Paul McCarthy.
You can find the full league table and fixtures on the Brighton Tri Novice Cup page.
