With a last minute cancellation of the swim due to high levels of blue green algae making the race a duathlon, Freedom Tri were not fazed and rose to the occasion fittingly, setting new records at the same time. With a last minute format of 10k run / 40k bike / 5k run, Freedom set off apace to scoop a phenomenal bag of trophies along the way. Matt Sayers led charge with 7th place in 2:05:54 (1st in Age Group); followed by Luke Nicholl 20th in 2:16:08 (7th AG); Martin Hawke 21st 2:17:09 (5th AG); Ben Field 33rd 2:22:03 (12th AG); Ann Tryssesoone 57th 2:38:14 (1st AG); Bettina West 65th 2:44:03 (1st AG); Matt Cotter 74th 2:50:26 (12th AG); Jane Britten 83rd 2:56:29 (2nd AG). With three age group winners plus some overall great performances meant for the first time Freedom Tri won the overall team prize too! Go Freedom!!
