A windy swim at Lochore tests PTC athletes.
It was a hardy bunch that went to Lochore to tackle the sprint (750m/20km/5km) and Standard (1500m/40km/10km) Distance triathlons. During set up of everyone's bikes it was clear the wind was going to play a factor in the swim, and it certainly made the one lap sprint, and two lap Standard with "Aussie Exits" (finish lap one, exit the water, run along the beach to the entry point and start lap 2!) a talking point! Out on the bike again it was a one lap sprint and two lap standard route, with a hill to get everyone warmed up at the start and circle parts of the Fife countryside. The run was along the banks of Lochore with great support from the locals and visitors.
Everyone put in great efforts, and members Alicja Weyer and Billy Bunyan brought home podium places! Alicja was first female in both her category and overall in the Standard, and Billy was first male Vintage in the sprint.
