One of Bermuda’s exciting junior prospects, Alex Pilgrim, recently enrolled in Bournemouth Collegiate School where he is taking advantage of their inschool triathlon programme run by Bernie Shrosbree and his son Gregg. Bernie is a good friend of Steve Trew who has ofcourse been coming to Bermuda for many years for our junior summer triathlon camps.
I had the chance to ride with Alex a week ago when in the UK and he seems to be settling in well.
This weekend Alex will be able to match himself against some top UK juniors as he competes in the inter regional qualifier for the South West Region in the TriStars age group (13-14) draft legal race. The first 3 boys and girls qualify for the Inter Regional championships in Nottingham the 3rd week in August. Then On Sunday 6 July he competes in a 13-14 draft legal race at Eton Dorney in the UK before flying back to Bermuda for his summer vacation.
Alex’s results will be posted here but you can get more information on his races by clicking on the links below :
