Club tri-ing hard

TRIATHLON: Clarence Valley Triathlon Club members enjoyed a successful day out at Robina in the Queensland Tri Series and Junior International Triathlon Union rounds.

With 18 members making the trip north, club president Darren Adams said there were some good results for the club, including another gold medal to Ray Hunt in the 70-74 category of the QTS Sprint event.

"Ray is chugging along in good form," Adams said.

"There aren't too many in his age group, but that doesn't matter really. He is still going strong, which is great.

"Jay Adams had his first taste of draft legal racing in the Junior ITU series and gained some valuable experience finishing the two race series in 15th against the best from across Australia and New Zealand.

"Other up and coming junior stars shined also, with the Lovell kids going hard. Christian finished in fifth place after one of the quickest swims and run legs, and showed great determination to run down fellow competitors."

Adams said the events in Robina mark the start of a busy few weeks for the club, all leading up to the Elite Energy Yamba Triathlon Festival on the last weekend of April.
