FVS TRI duathletes were in hot form again in the second of the three-race Milton Keynes Big Cow Winter Duathlon Series.

The event comprised a 4.5k run, 16k bike ride and 3.8k run at the MK Bowl and FVS TRI earned two silvers and two bronze medals.

The ladies' and junior races went off first.

Lesley Dutton was first home for the club in a superb second position to add to her win in the first race, securing her lead in the series.

Penny Wylie was an excellent third, having led Lesley throughout the bike leg, she was just pipped on the run.

Sean Bradley returned to the MK Bowl to secure second spot in the junior race, having won one of the summer races in 2005. This topped off an excellent week for him as he has been selected to compete for Bedfordshire in the national schools' cross-country event.
