Bertha hits the Jackpot

The aftermath of Hurricane Bertha, sweeping rain across the country along with high winds, caused the cancellation of the Elite Wave at Liverpool Triathlon. That meant Tom and David Bishop, Kieran Bones-Hill and Will Cowen were all left high and dry whilst everyone else was nearly drowning.

Hardy soles, Ben Gerrard and Richard Knell-Moore were the only two to get some racing in over at Allethorpe. Ben, returning with a “bang” we are reliably informed, clocked a very respectable 2:14:16 especially given the biblical downpour. Richard went a bit quicker in this swim-bike-swimwithrunningshoes race, clocking 58:30 for the third fastest bike on the day and 2:08:18 overall.

Also out and about was Andrew Whiteley sporting his Jackpot kit as a guide for para-triathlete Haseeb at Liverpool. Luckily they got to race before conditions deteriorated too much and Haseeb came third behind the current European Champs and World champs.
