AMER­SHAM Tris­tars had two first time win­ners at the Hilling­don Au­tumn Chil­dren’s Duathlon on Sun­day.

In fact, five of the seven Tris­tars were com­pet­ing in their first duathlon event, but it was John Nick­less (right) and Katie Rep­per (left) who took home the hon­ours.

In the U8 boys event (400m run/1.5km bike/200m run), Nick­less en­tered the first tran­si­tion in fourth place, caught up to sec­ond on the bike leg and then took his first ti­tle with a sprint to the fin­ish line in the sec­ond run. Rocco Moar, also in his first duathlon, fin­ished fifth.

In the girls 9-10 event (750m run/4.5km bike/1.5km run), Rep­per was in sec­ond after the cy­cle, but quickly took the lead on the fi­nal run to fin­ish first. Scar­lett Lewis, Isla Brown and Maddy Lewis were sixth, eighth and 10th re­spec­tively.

Fi­nally, in the boys 11-12 event (750m run/4.5km bike/1.5km run), Harry Tack fin­ished 11th. (17th), Sophie Ch­ester­man (19th) and Katie Bench (21st), as were the U13 girls, through Emily Alder­son (ninth), Olivia Cameron (17th), Alice Mof­fat (25th) and Jess Pullen (39th).

The match was held at the new venue of The Col­lege Eques­trian Cen­tre, in Keysoe, fea­tur­ing one of the wa­ter haz­ards used for the horse jumps, while the next match is in Lu­ton on De­cem­ber 6.

HIGH POINT: Chiltern Har­ri­ers’ Jonty Wa­ger-Leigh and Will Perkin fin­ished in first and sec­ond
