King leads the way as trio star
Tri Spirit Team’s Liz King, Victoria Kenny and Neil Wood all took top honours in the John Flitch MTB Duathlon on Sunday. The duathlon at Minnis Bay, organised by Thanet Road Runners AC, featured a two-lap course of 7.5 miles. It included a 2.4 mile run along the promenade before the field tackled challenging and very muddy mountain bike section. They then ran 4.5 miles over dunes, and through ditches with water coming up to waist height. King won the ladies’ race and was first in the vet 45 age-group. Kenny and Wood, and Julie Bradford and Trevor Bridge competed in the team event. They made a strong impression on a huge field and managed a clean sweep with Kenny/Wood first and second respectively in the mixed team event.
