Cleveleys Road Club Racing Team member Martin Coulthurst takes a win in his V50 Category, here is what he had to say:-

"Today was my annual longer race of the year and I targeted a known fast course near York in the hope of breaking the magic 220 barrier. Olympic distance variably involves a 1500m swim. 40k bike and 10 k run.
Today's offering = 1500 m swim. 24 mile bike leg followed by long run of 11 k run to make up the shortfall on bike.
swim = 24:02 in a wet suit to my relief!
bike = 60:52 which included the run to and from mount/dismount line (really fast road surfaces around York!) which went really well to mile 20 then thigh started cramping up so carried that concern for last few miles.... but basically 24 mph average riding at threshold so best bike split in a tri for me by a long shot
run = 47:48 which was a slow plod but thankfully thigh held up til the end and I was able to maintain the pace to the finish losing only 4 positions overall.

FINISH TIME OVERALL 2:14:58 for 22/300 and first V50 - really chuffed how much bike leg has come on thanks to CRC encouragement!"
