Temple Bike&Run (29th June 2010)

The first ever Temple Bike&Run comprised of the normal Temple TT course followed by a run. The run was measured somewhere between 1.77 and 2 miles and made for a great triathlon training session. Many found themselves fighting off cramp at the start of the run and starting out with helmets and jackets still on. However nobody put on anybody else's running shoes which was the main thing.

Johnny Hooper finished in a strong second place to Paul Carroll despite his chain jumping off. Good to see the "Hooperman" back wearing the aero helmet. What was up with the dirty hand prints on his shorts though?

The good thing about the TTs each week are the battles that happen throughout the field. Tonight it was Ciaran Hanratty who came out top with a pretty big win over Kieran McVeigh.

The master of the timed warmup, where you arrive at the start with seconds to spare, must be Stephen McWilliams. McWilliams just now needs to fine tune the tying of his shoelaces and he will be one to watch.
