ANOTHER Englishman is off to Australia this November hoping for success.
FVS TRI member Kevin Smart has been selected to represent Great Britain in the World Age Group Long Course Triathlon Championships in Canberra.
It follows on from his success at the European Long Course Triathlon Championships.
Sean Bradley sealed his junior win at the Milton Keynes four-race summer duathlon series with a personal best.
He completed the two-mile run/10-mile bike/two-mile run race in 58:42, winning the race and the series, and adding the summer win to his winter series win earlier in the year.
Sean was also joined by his father Kevin who finished in 70:32.
In his first season of competitive multi-sport, Sean has also competed in sprint and Olympic triathlon events and is working towards GB age group representation in the next couple of years.
Four members of FVS TRI completed the Helvellyn Tri, probably the hardest triathlon in the UK with a one-mile swim in Ullswater, a 38-mile bike followed by an eight-mile run/scramble up Helvellyn to finish!
First home for the club was Nick Downing completing his first Helvellyn along with ironman Mike Utton.
They were joined by Helvellyn veterans Chris Suckling, who makes the annual pilgrimage, and Tony Shortland who finished in just over five hours.
Three members continued with the multi-sport theme competing in a cyclo-cross event in Fairlands Valley Park, Stevenage.
First home from the club was Alex Turner who managed a top 15 finish despite returning from an early season back operation. Club coach Keith Perry made his debut at the event and finished mid pack with Paul Dutton just behind.
