Alongside Windsor and the Captain’s Challenge, the annual 3/4 Distance Bananaman Triathlon at Dorney lake is a highlight of the competitive season for BTS. Rather than racing solo, the club focuses on putting in several subsidised Relay (3 people, 1 discipline each) and Team Time Trial (3 people, all 3 disciplines, draft legal) outfits.
The racing is usually followed by an onsite picnic, where everyone brings something to the party. Although this year the race was sponsored by Lidl so the copious free bacon and sausage sandwiches did distract slightly.
This year we entered 5 Relay Teams and 6 TTT Teams, with the results shown below. Well done too to Kevin Spence, who actually raced the event solo, and whose results are included too.
