August 2020

Still lacking triathlon competition, 8 members of the club eligible to cycle in the local Island time trials watched the ominous stormy clouds whilst heading out to Wellow for another evening of TT fun… Great camaraderie as always between the 14-17yr olds with some impressive performances by all, despite many being on road bikes.

After supporting these youngsters from the side of the road last time, Coach Mark Jenkinson couldn’t resist and joined them and two of their other coaches, Simon Pilcher and Darren Cole, on the course!

Great fun and extremely good training for future triathlon competitions.


July 2020 – First TT for the IOW Tri club

After months of lock down and insular training, some members of the IOW Triathlon Club decided to see what TT racing was all about.  Boldly led by two of the coaches, Darren Cole and Simon Pilcher the 14-18 year olds all cycled well against more seasoned cyclists on a TT held on the Isle of Wight, recording times under 30minutes for the 10mile time trial – shows what this lot spent lockdown doing!
