Organiser Mick Dicker of Raw Energy Pursuits ( reports from Sunday's Steyning Triathlon.

Sunday 5th May 2013 – Steyning, West Sussex

Perfect conditions and the appearance of the sun led to a new course record being set at the Steyning Triathlon. The Sprint race (400/20/5) saw Dave Risebrow from Tuff Fitty Tri Club dominate the race from the start and moved from second after the swim to lead throughout the race. Teammate Dan Cobby was more of slowburner as he moved from 30th after the swim into second place after setting the fastest run split of the day (15.29). Top junior Harry Leleu from Chichester Westgate Tri finished third. Horsham's Rachel Willmott set the fastest bike split of the day (33.40) to win by just under a minute from Tuff Fitty's Nicole Patterson who set the fastest swim; Mid Sussex Tri's Karen Pattison was third. As usual there were some good performances from the Veteran contingent with Paul Blackmore (Team THE), Martin Darlinson (EG Tri) & Will Flewett (Brighton Phoenix) taking their category wins. Juliet Starbuck (Steyning AC) & Clare Johnson (Horsham Amphibs) also took honours.

The Standard race (800/35/8) saw Brighton Phoenix Tri's Thomas Hopkins making it two wins on the bounce at Steyning. He moved from fourth after the swim to set the fastest run of the day ahead of Gary Brind (South Downs Bikes) and Farnham Tri Club Veteran James Long. Mary Campbell (Chichester Westgate Tri Club) and Tri Purbecks Fran Bungay battled it out with Campbell eventually winning by 39 seconds in 1:49:16. Blackheath & Bromley Harriers AC's Katy Murray clocked a very impressive 31.29 for the 8km course which was the 6th fastest overall. First Relay Team was the Tri Hards from Cranleigh.

The good weather & enthusiastic supporters made for a great family atmosphere at the finish area.
