It was a great day of BTS racing and socialising at this year’s Bananaman triathlon and club summer social.

A record 17 BTS team time trial (TTT) and relay teams descended on Dorney on a sunny Saturday to race in teams carefully selected by our Captains Laura and Adam.

In the build up to the TTT race, teams could be seen huddled together discussing tactics – it paid off though as there were wins and podium finishes in both the men’s and women’s races, with a BTS women’s team winning for the second year running!

Everywhere you looked at Dorney there were flashes of yellow and black – TTT on the run course (eyeballing each other and trash talk not limited to transition!), relay cyclists battling it out against each other (and the infamous Dorney headwind) and people across the course cheering everyone on!

A shout out must also be given to the youngest BTS member Alex Titley who won the TriStar 2 category in a time of 24:58 for the 250m/5.3km/2.5km event and Alex Coppell who after swimming for a relay team, completed the solo Half Banana in 44:47 (400m/10.6km/2.5km)
