TT2A AOTM :: July 2013

July was a busy month for the Ironman athletes of the team racing in Europe, first with one of the team’s favourite races – Challenge Roth followed by Ironman Switzerland at the end of the month. Both fantastic races in green and pleasant lands and both quite challenging courses, although Switzerland presents more hills on the bike than Roth.

Nominees for July AOTM are:

Andy Veall finished Roth in a respectable 12:35:16 in his first event of this distance, recovering from a stress fracture earlier in the year and training around the pressures of work Andy finished the event – but he needs to work on his transitions, check out Andy’s race report here 🙂

Mike O’Brien had a great day out at Roth, his second ironman distance race, it was a breeze compared to his first Ironman Melbourne back in May. A well deserved, and massive PB on this course.

James Cresswell raced Ironman Switzerland, his second Ironman and he was in good form leading into the race and he performed very well on a hard day.

Peter Faulhaber raced Ironman Switzerland and it was his first Ironman event and what an outstanding performance on debut on a hot and tough course, but we know Peter opts for the tougher races after a sterling performance at Timberman 70.3 last year. Peter was in fantasic form and had trained hard and was happy leading up the event.

Piers Constable as always buries himself come race day and he didn’t fail to pull another outstanding performance out of the bag at Roth (10:03:29) only minutes off that elusive 9-hour club. Read a very honest race report summing up his day here.

Tony Hahaime finished his second ironman event in 13:38:29. You can read his race report here, which is an endurance event in itself.

Paulo Costa finished his first event at this distance in 12:40:08 with a smile which is always worth a nomination, having fun is what this is all about.

TT2A Athlete of the Month

It was a tough call between Jimmy and Peter – an outstanding race by both and a great race to follow. Their results speak for themselves…

James is one of the ‘progressive’ swimmers of the team 🙂 and he came out of the water (1:32:02), 10mins after Peter (1:22:48), they had a similar bike Peter rode 6:09:22 with Jimmy 6:05:06 recovering 4mins on the bike and a further 30secs in transition. It all came down to the run, and this from a ‘online tracker’ spectators perspective was the fun bit, what we didn’t know is that Peter and Jimmy could see each other on the run as it was a looped course and James recovered a further 5mins on the run, he clawed his way back to pip Peter by 1min and 7secs. I would recommend that you read Peter’s race report for an account of his race – featuring Jimmy 🙂

Now I have made out the whole affair to be a competition between Peter and Jimmy, and from where we were sat watching here in Dubai it was… but out in the field they showed camaraderie and encouragement for each other – in true TT2A style, which makes them both Athlete of the Month as well as fantastic triathletes. Brilliant 🙂

Capt. Clipboard riding London to Paris

A message from Stuart CauntStuey 1

As many of you know I am riding from London to Paris in 4 weeks time – 341 km over 2 days punctuated with a night trying to sleep on a cross-channel ferry… This will be a massive challenge for me given the roads and distances involved and the fact that this is a small group. Normally, when I do a challenge it is a selfish one, but this is a little different. I’m raising money this time for Friends of EORTC. This charity is the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer. Their mission is to improve cancer treatment and therefore survival and quality of life of all cancer patients. They do this by promoting, coordinating, analyzing and publishing clinical cancer research carried out by around 20 groups of clinical specialists. The results are shared worldwide so although this is a European charity, its reach is much larger than that Cancer has directly touched my family twice. My grandfather died from it and my mother survived breast cancer 15 years ago. As triathletes we will be decreasing our risk in certain areas (30% of cancer deaths relate to diet, obesity or physical inactivity), but with the climate here our sun exposure and

salt intake can significantly increase our risk as well.

Please help me to raise enormous amounts of money for this great cause by visiting Just Giving You can donate by credit card in just a few minutes and if you pay UK tax you can also use gift-aid to pass the income tax you paid on your donation back to the charity. Thank you so much in advance – when I go through the inevitable dark patches it will really help me to know that I’m doing it for a great cause 🙂
