World Cup Series

The World Cup 2014 season has certainly be exciting with a total of 11 races, up to the four best results for the World Cup have been counted. Collecting points has required tactical planning with plenty of races on offer, including 2 World Cup races in GB, The Brigg Bomber and the Awesome Foursome Bude.

This year in addition to the traditional Quadrathlon races, there have been cross-races including MTBiking. The WQF welcomes this initiative by the organizer, as the diversity of the athlete is not only increased, but it will hopefully attract multisport athletes too.

The Overall and Age-Group winners will win the elaborate crystal globe, but new for 2014 the top three finishers overall and in age groups additionally get high quality medals. This hopefully should create a further incentive and competition for places in the future.

Overall Winners 2014 Stefan and Lisa

National Trophy Series 2014

Once again Bude Awesome Foursome was a fitting end to our 2014 National Trophy Series, with the last race of the series being the final decider for most of the prizes! It has been made up of 5 races, unfortunately The Deeside Triathlon and the Fabian 4 had to be cancelled so Trophy Points were taken from the 5 races below.

The Brigg Bomber

South Yorkshire Quad

Box End Sprint Quadrathlon

Shrewsbury Sprint Quadrathlon

FINAL TROPHY RESULTS 2014-Trophy-Final Results

This season 83 males and 30 female athletes took part in the series, slightly less men than last year but double the amount of females … Well Done The Girls! It was great to see plenty of first timers and some of them doing really well doing 3 or more of our races, special mention to John Redmond, Mary White and youngsters Will Jackson and Robert Jeffries all in their first year of Quadrathlon. Superb commitment from Phil Holden, John Kavanagh and Lance Ball who all did the whole Series, with Ian Smith, Nigel Unwin, Nicholas Price, Julian Brewer and John Ellwood all doing 4 races.

Another Special mention must go to Peter Chappill from Lincsquad who has also done all 5 races, 3 as an individual and the other 2 leading youngster Jack Gardner (partially sighted), and great achievement to Peter and to Jack who have gone from strength to strength this year and have done PB’s all round!

A fantastic season and a huge uptake in women and over 60′s, its looking like the over 60′s will stand in a catagory on their own next season, so long as we have 3 or more racing! The BQA hope everyone enjoyed their quad season and will be back for more challenges and races next year!

All 5 of our Quad Races this year have been superbly organized by enthusiastic ‘Teams’ of like minded people and athletes, all enjoyed by the competitors ! A Huge thank-you for their commitment and for providing us with great races with the Aim to Keep our Small Friendly Sport ALIVE!

The BQA help to promote their races and supply the Race insurance so its vital we have YOUR support, we have had our largest membership to date, a big thanks to Lincsquad for hosting the World Championships this has made a huge difference, so a Big THANK-YOU to all our 2014 members for your support!

The BQA Perpetual Trophies (and BQA kit vouchers) are awarded each year, provided each winner has done 3 races in the series, and must be a current BQA Member. Congratulations to the 2014 Winners!

A Truley Awesome Foursome

A great crowd of supporters!

A great crowd of supporters!

A Fantastic Race to finish the 2014 Season … the weather was kind with the sea a pleasant 17 degrees though a little choppy for us non sea swimmers! The surfers showed us the way with some very fast swim times from the Local surf Team members. There was very little wind and the conditions were warm … the only issue some were worried about was the daylight! It was a late start 3.30 due to the tide but everyone made it back just in time!

Chris Hammond strong out of the swim

Paddling strong Nigel Unwin

The Age group athletes were out in force the over 50’s being the biggest age groups male and female though the standard was high across the board with some excellent times and good clean racing! Local Andrew Smith, was out of the swim followed by some strong local swimmers, off on the bike the tough climbs would soon sort out the field. Chris Hammond powered around the course and moved into the lead, but hot on his heels were seasoned Quadrathletes Nigel Unwin  and Ian Smith, plus Andrew Smith. There were some fast bike times on the demanding course so it was down to some good strong paddling to split up the field. Nigel took the lead with Ian closing in. He took the lead it was a close paddle with Ian moving ahead with just a minuet in hand.

Winner Ian Smith

Winner Ian Smith

Ian ran well and extended his lead on the run and went on to win with just 1min 30secs to spare. Nigel came in 2nd  with local triathlete Chris Hammond in 3rd place.

The standard of racing was high with some fast times, it was great to see a strong contingent of BQA athletes all producing good results – In the Vet 50 category Duncan Pearson came 3rd and is improving very well in his kayak. Russel Breyer and John Kavanagh had a great races coming 5th and 6th . Peter Chappill racing on his own, came 9th  he can frequently be seen leading Jack Gardner (partially sighted). A huge improvement too from John Redmond, this was certainly the toughest race he’d done … and a fantastic achievement (sorry if I mislead him I did say the course was a bit undulating!!)

In the Vet 40 category BQA athlete Phil Holden was the highest placed, he finished with a big smile (as always) despite his capsize in the kayak … it did get a bit choppy as the wind blew up the canal. Julian Brewer came 7th and Lance Ball again new to the sport has had a full season had a good result in 8th place.

Our young BQA member Rob Jefferies (21yrs) has had a brilliant season too, he won his age group and also a World Cup Globe. Will Jackson (17yrs) also won his race and a World Cup Globe. Let’s hope they both continue to race Quadrathlon and keep raising the bar!

10616061_553770578084760_1945261579128855929_nIn the Ladies race, it was a lovely surprise to see ex World Quad Champion Helen Dyke on the start line, as before she was as good as ever taking the lead from the start. She swam well and had a strong bike, her weakest discipline also went fairly well …. And once Helen puts her running shoes on nobody can touch her, well done good to see her back! Newcomer to the sport Judith Humpleby was next out of the swim and local athlete Jess Lynes (both vet 50’s) both enjoying the sea. Ali Martin and Jean Ashley came next, once again the bike would sort out the placings. Ali moved into 2nd place, and hung onto that to the finish. Jean put in a strong kayak overtaking Judith and moved into 3rd. Mary White (vet 60) had another good solid race coming a very creditable 5th a superb result for her first year in Quadrathlon.

The only German starter was Peter Appelt, at 65 years old, he has completed his 10th Quadrathlon this year, he was second behind Tony Richards a newcomer to our sport along with along with Sue Rix, its very encouraging to see competitive racing in the over 60′s!

Once again it was great to see newcomers to our sport, and lots of teams in the event lets hope they enjoyed the race – its such a fantastic venue, I hope they will be back to support it again next year …. And maybe support our other Quadrathlons up and down the country!

A huge Thank-you to Simon Hammond and his Brilliant Family and Happy Team of Helpers! Once again you gave us all a great race, superb racing and superb conditions. Bude was buzzing with atmosphere … we certainly showed the town how to enjoy ourselves and impressed many onlookers. Big Thanks again from the BQA and the WQF to the Organizing Team the Quadrathlon certainly lived up to its name AWESOME  …. get it in your diaries for next year 19th Sept … Be There!!!!

Kayak Training Triathlon, Macclesfield

John Kavanagh is a BQA member racing very competitively in the 50-60 age group. He started Quads a couple of years ago, and has done really well and along the way he has encouraged quite alot of his friends and his twin sisters to take up the sport. He is based at Macclesfield Canoe Club and is planning to do a short kayak training triathlon on the first Sunday of the month, from October to March, weather permitting.

John and sisters who all competed at the Worlds in Brigg

Anyone is welcome to join him, but please note that this is an informal outing for individuals, not an event organised by any club or organisation.

No specific rules, no timekeeper or marshals, everyone is responsible for themselves, and their own equipment and its safety.

 

 

Kayak Triathlon Training, OCTOBER 5th

Lovely weather for the first time at this. Cool, dry, no wind. Eight people gave it a go, which made for an interesting kayak start and first turn (after about 300m). Neil and Wendy paddled a K2 but the rest of us were in k1s. I had a lead setting out on the bike but stopped to lend mechanical assistance to some random cyclist who had a puncture but no tyre levers. At this point Nigel passed me and he finished first. We think that allowing forr my delay we both finished within seconds of each other at about 1hr 59 mins. Mary and Andrew G opted to miss out the run as they were nursing injuries and Rachael cut her run short for the same reason. Margaret was next home (2hr:31) (she and Mary missed a turn on the bike course and did an extra 4 miles) with Neil and Wendy coming in within a minute of each other at about 2hr 28 min. 

My route and timings can be viewed athttp://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/605975656

I have thought of one improvement for next time, I’ll bring some cake for the finish. Any other suggestions gratefully receive. Next one 2nd November, but check here for any last minute changes.

The format I will follow is 5km kayak, 23km bike, 6km run.

It is open to everyone to as much or as little as they wish. For example, non-kayakers could run the kayak route on the towpath and then do the bike and run routes. Non-runners could do the kayak route twice before the bike route and non-cyclists could opt for twice the kayak course and a run or one kayak route and two laps of the run.

This is my plan
Kayak: 5km, start on Macclesfield canal at 9am at Grimshaw lane (Bollington). Paddle south 300m, turn before bridge at wall between the first two cottages on the non-towpath bank, paddle to just beyond bridge 24, turn at large sycamore tree on towpath side, less than 100m from bridge 24, paddle back to canoe club shed at the starting point. (Any type of kayak – or canoe).

T1: Put kayak on car (for those not familiar with this location this involves going down some steep steps). Get bike from car, walk to edge of car park and mount bike.
Bike: Cycle 23km, undulating and mostly quiet roads. The route can be viewed at http://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/581040093
T2: Dismount at edge of car park, re-secure bike in or on car.

Run: Run 6km. Out of car park, cross Grimshaw lane, downhill about 100m and right onto Middlewood way in direction of Marple. Run 3km to bridge 9 and return.

Shrewsbury Quadrathlon

After 5 cold days of rain leading up to the event, we arrived in Shrewsbury to find the weather warm and the sun shinning a wonderful start to another great Quadrathlon organized by SYTri and the ever committed BQA member Gill Otto and her supporters!

This year the race was almost up to its full capacity with 3 Quadrathlon waves, we had a big cross section of Quadrathletes taking part, plenty of regular BQA members, and a very enthusiastic bunch of newcomers, it was especially good to see 15 females on the start list … all smiling too!

Due to the cold wet week the river was flowing well and was rather chilly (14.7) lucky for us it was only a 500m swim and with the flow didn’t take too long! The kayak leg again was fast downstream a little swirly in places and going back up stream was a bit more testing especially for the less experienced paddlers, everyone survived though a few had problems getting in and out but everyone made it to the fast undulating bike course. A slight headwind and up hill(ish) on the way out made the return leg fast … a tail wind and downhill we all flew back in! By the time we all hit the run  the sun was warm and there were plenty of crowds cheering us all on, it was a pleasure to be part of SYTri’s Triathlon, making it a great atmosphere with plenty of athletes and supporters in the Welsh Show Ground.

In the Ladies Race the top 5 ladies came out of the swim within 20 seconds of each other, but Sharon Colley soon over took Claire Moran on the kayak, to be followed by newcomer Rachael Bennet, alongside Jean Ashley, with her daughter Kate Ashley tucked in on her mum’s wash!

10626619_833960789967760_792115250411480303_n

Jean still friends with daughter ‘Kate’, even if she did sit on her mums wash!

Sharon stayed in the lead on the bike, whilst the rest of the field sorted themselves out. Jean moved into 2, followed by Rachael and then Kate. These positions remained the same to the finish. Unfortunately Claire Moran had a technical issue with her bike but she hung on to take 5th place. The two ‘Vets’ Sharon and Jean took 1st and 2nd, but were being chased by a couple of good youngsters, congratulations must go also to Rachel Bennet on finishing 3rd in her first ever Quad, and also her husband Jason Bennet coming 6th in the mens race, 2 excellent newcomers (I hope they are coming back for more!)

It was great to see so many women taking part, many for the first time there were some excellent results, plenty of PB’s including Deb May 7 mins faster (she’s promised to go under 2hrs next year … so Im holding her to that!). I was so pleased to see all the ‘girls’ finishing well, but most important with happy smiling faces and all loving their day swimming, kayaking, biking and running, well done girls!

10622869_816787791685947_6221595232288591133_n

Deb May encouraging the new Quadrathletes well done Girls!

10628311_289244334594466_7639713890707941170_n

Kathryn King (overall ladies Tri Winner), Sharon Colley Quad winner, newcomer John Jackson and Steve King Quad winner.

The Men’s race was in 2 waves a Vet wave and a senior/u23wave so it was quite difficult to see who was in the lead. In the first wave Vet John Kavangh was first out of the swim, but was soon to be chased down Ian Smith and Nigel Unwin on the kayak, they had a very close race, Ian moved ahead on the bike and remained in the lead on the run. In the 2nd wave, Steve King took hold of the lead after a very fast swim and kayak, he was on top form and lead throughout to take 1st place, finishing 4 mins ahead of Ian Smith who came in 2nd holding off Nigel in 3rd place. Andy Childs came home in 4th again looking strong!

There were some good strong performances from our BQA members and all improved times from last season, its great to see last years newcomers to quadrathlon improve so much. Special mention to Phil Holden who was 10 mins quicker, and finished 5th and partially sited Jack Garner (tandem with Pete Chappill) who improved by 13 mins, these are just 2 names but looking at the results there has been some excellent times in similar conditions to last year … so a huge Well Done to all!

National Trophy Results after 4 races 2014-Trophy-Results after 4 races.  There are no clear cut winners so far … looks like Bude will be the final test!!

Well done to everyone who raced …and to the organizers who gave us a Great Day Out!! Thank -you to SYTri, Sam Mountain and his Team and to our Quadrathlon Host Gill Otto and Shrewsbury Canoe Club … you helped put Quadrathlon on the Map once again!

Cheers Jean Ashley

New BQA Training Kit … help spread the word!

I met up with Godfrey Sports at Henley Rowing Regatta this year, as I had been very impressed with their custom range of clothing, my daughter ‘Kate’ has been using their kit for the last four years whilst rowing and training hard at University, so it has been certainly put to the test!

I have been coordinating with them over the last month and we have now designed a set of quality clothing for the BQA which is now available to purchase from their website using the following link. You can order single items of clothing, rather than waiting for the BQA to build up a bulk order which is ideal as we are spread out all over the UK.

Box End Quadrathlon

 

Sorry for the delay in the Box End Quadrathlon results and National Trophy Standings, I’ve just returned to reality after a couple of weeks in the Alps!

It was a great shame Box End suffered from low numbers, only 15 athletes took part, 14 in the Quad and 1 in the Tri.  Its a great shame, and as Mark Pryor said  ‘this may well put the race in jeopardy, if numbers do not improve this could well be the last year of this race’. A great shame as all the competitors that entered really enjoyed this tough little race!

Congratulations to overall winner Nigel Unwin, (1.51.50) still in fine form after his vet 50 tittle at the Worlds. He was being chased by much improved (since last year) Phil Holden who came in just 25 seconds later (1.52.15). Will Thurrell came in 3rd (1.56.06). Followed closely by a very quick bunch of over 50′s … this is certainly going to be a closely fought battle in the National Trophy Series!

Congratulations to Mary White the only female in the race, she had a very good race and had some excellent splits and came a very creditable 10th overall … well done Mary!

Full Results here 2014_quadrathlon

John Kavanagh quoted ‘Three of us made it from Macclesfield Canoe Club,  Nicholas Price, Mary White and I, although it was only a small turn out we enjoyed. Its a great venue for a short distance race and the terrain makes the bike course a lot tougher than the distance suggests. Thanks very much to Mark and the organising Team’.

The National Trophy Results are hotting up after 3 Races, with just two more races left in the Series Shrewsbury Sprint, and the Awesome Foursome, Bude. Remember 3 races to count and you have to be a 2014 BQA member to have a trophy or prize. At the moment Phil Holden is winning (294 pts) with John Kavanagh in close 2nd (292pts), also winning Vet 40 and Vet 50 respectively. Robert Jefferies is winning the Under 23′s. In the Ladies Series Sarah Allars is winning (220pts) with Mary White just behind and winning Vet 50′s (217pts). Unfortunately the Fabian 4 is cancelled, so get your entries in for Shrewsbury and Bude if you want to increase your BQA points and make a difference!

Fabian4 Conwy Mountain Triathlon

At an event committee meeting yesterday evening we made the decision to defer the 2014 event to 13th September 2015.  The entry rate to date was about half that of previous years, and talking to many potential entrants, the date, in the peak summer holiday period, was the key problem.

It is with regret, therefore, that we have decided not to put the event on this year.

All current entrants will be automatically transferred to the new date of 13th September 2015.  If that is not suitable, we will issue a full refund if you notify us before the end of November 2014 (after that the standard refund T&Cs will apply).  Entries for next year will open on 1st December 2014.  Those staying on the entry list, but who paid the band 2 entry rate will also be refunded, so that they only pay the band 1 fee.

The tide on that day next year is perfect, and we have some other ideas for increasing the appeal of the event.

We trust that this will not inconvenience your plans for August too much, and hope that you will stay on the entry list for next year.

Regards,

Ellie Salisbury and the Map17 Events Team
