NICK PILGRIM (ARCHIVE PICTURE)

Nick Pilgrim continues to impress in the 13 to 15 youth ranks as he once again took on a strong field at the  USAT Youth Elite Triathlon Series event in Monroe, Washington State, USA.

Nick emerged from the 375m swim in 5 mins 37 and then completed the draft legal 10km bike in  16 mins 04 secs. He then had a disappointing 2.5km run by his standards of  9:21 for an overall time of 31 min 51 secs. However, his time was still good enough for 13th overall in a field of 48.

The race was won by by Nick Holmes in 30 mins 21 secs with a blistering run of 8 mins 36 secs as he edged Colin Wilson (31:24).

In what appears to have been a shortened swim, Tucker exited the water in 10 mins 16 secs and completed the 40km bike in 1 hr 04 mins 16 secs before recording one of the faster run splits of 39 mins 24 secs for the 10km for an overall time of 1hr 56 mins 16 secs.

The race was won by pre race favorite Daniel Halksworth of Jersey in 1 hr 45 mins.

ERICA HAWLEY OUT OF AUSTRIA RACE DUE TO INJURY

19228593_1316971051733238_7245307690287628288_n
Erica Hawley published this picture of herself yesterday after deciding to pull out of the race. The Digicel sponsored athlete will race again on June 30th in Holten, Netherlands

Erica Hawley suffered a bike crash yesterday, Thursday 15th June, that sadly put her out of today’s European Junior Elite Triathlon Championships.

Erica’s shoulder took most of the brunt in the crash and when she tested it in a swim this morning she realised that it was too sore to start the race. A precautionary XRay is planned but mum Julia Hawley says she thinks she should be ready to race in the next European Cup junior elite race in Holten, Holland on the 30th June.

Get better soon !!!!

TYLER SMITH 7TH IN LEEDS JUNIOR ELITE RACE

IMG_0170
TYLER SMITH (ARCHIVE PHOTO COMPETING IN KELOWNA, CANADA)

Flora Duffy was not the only Bermuda elite triathlete competing in Leeds last weekend as Bermuda elite junior Tyler Smith, who is attending Leeds University, lined up in the junior elite race over shorter super sprint distances.

After an excellent podium finish at the recent British Junior Elite Championships Tyler is coming into some good form ahead of the CAMTRI American Junior Championships on July 15th where he will attempt to qualify for the Junior World Championships in Holland in September.

In Leeds Tyler had an impressive swim as he led out of the water but in the shorter super sprint distances two slowish transitions cost him time and his T2 / run in particular took him away from the podium positions. Tyler crossed the line in 34:07 with the winner Nathan Smith, who came out of the water just behind Tyler, producing an excellent all round performance to finish in 33:08 .

Tyler’s splits ( winner’s splits in brackets)

Swim 4:55 (4:59), T1 3:04 (2:57), Bike 15:24 (14:58), T2 (not shown – might be in run time) , Run 8:40 (8:17).
