two of the last three weekends have seen good races for High Peak Tri Club members.

A group went to compete near Knutsford to race the Boundary Breeze event.

The water was warm enough to make wetsuits optional, though most chose to wear them. There was a scenic bike course over fairly flat roads, then a run round the lake to finish.

Nigel Critchlow rode a very fast bike leg while Phil Shaw was happy to get a race in the bag without aggravating injuries. Nicky Dick came out of the swim 13th and held on for 13th lady and 1st vet.

The following weekend was the Hathersage Hilly event, the swim being in the lido and the bike and running legs over a truly hilly course. Phil Duffy and Phil Blundell both worked hard in a very competitive field. Nicky Dick raced hard too, taking the slot for third lady and 1st vet.

The club will be entering two teams in the National Relays at Holme Pierrepont later this summer.
