Once again Bude Awesome Foursome was a fitting end to our 2013 National Trophy Series, which has been made up of 6 races, unfortunately West Wight Quad had to be cancelled so Trophy Points were taken from the 5 races below.
◾The Brigg Bomber
◾Box End Quadrathlon
◾Fabian4 Dyffryn Conwy Mountain Triathlon
◾The Awesome Foursome
This season 92 males and 16 female athletes took part in the series. It was great to see plenty of first timers and some of them doing really well, special mention to John Kavanagh in his first year of Quadrathlon, and to Adam Norfolk and Phil Holden who both started last year and have very well in their first full season! We hope everyone enjoyed their quad season and will be back for more next year!
We have been a little low on athletes joining the BQA this season, with only 18 members, but we do have 8 Race Organizers/Clubs affiliated to us, which we are very grateful to for their support, they provide us with the opportunity to race and enjoy our sport. 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 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 and memberships to keep these races going. So a Big THANK-YOU to all our 2013 members!
