Despite the late rain everyone seemed to have a good time at the event – all that’s left now is to try and dry out all our flags, banners and gazebos! Provisional race results can now be seen on the main Steyning Triathlon event page or downloaded here for the Standard/Relay and here for the Sprint . As usual Race Timing Systems surpassed themselves and had sent the results off to www.tri247.com by 11:30am – very impressive. If you have any timing queries please email us.
Congratulations to Chris Jack from Chichester Runners for retaining the title from two years ago and Yvette Grice from Bodyworks XTC with an impressive 6th overall. Bluebell Provisional Results 2010 can be downloaded below.

There was some great racing today at Steyning as part of the National Ranking Series, with many athletes looking to qualify for the Europeans in France. Top duathlete Dan McCarthy from Trisport UK set the early pace just pulling away from promising junior Daniel Bailey from Chichester. Last years winner James Gilfillan was not far off the pace after the first 7km run before heading off onto bike. Edinburgh’s Gillian Palmer made the most of her experience at the 2002 Commonwealth Games to give her a comfortable gap over Coventry’s Danielle Stewart as she entered T1. Vicki Wade was third into T1 but by the end of the 36km cycle had closed the gap on both her rivals. Gilfillan made up a minute on McCarthy during cycle course with both athletes neck and neck into T2. However, McCarthy the National Age Group Champion had paced things perfectly and clocked the fastest 5km run of the day with 16:59 to win in 1:32:48, a minute ahead of Gilfillan. Palmer also made light work of the final 5km with the fifth fastest run time overall. Lee Caulderon from Tri Anglia took third as did Vicki Wade from Sale.
