Mick Dicker from Raw Energy Pursuits ( reports on the Steyning Long and Sprint Triathlon which took place today.

Long = 800m swim + 36km Bike + 8km Run - FULL RESULTS
Sprint = 400m Swim + 20km Bike + 5km Run - FULL RESULTS

There was a distinctly spring like fee to the event compared to last year’s infamous heavy snow. There were convincing winners in both races with Team Raw Energy’s Veteran Gary Pearce winning by over two minutes as he starts his preparation for Roth.  Crawley Tri’s Jonathon Streeter posted the fastest swim of the long race for second overall ahead of Brighton’s Malcolm Hughes. Last year’s winner James Dear from Mid Sussex was edged out to fourth place. The women’s race was much closer with Anne Hegvold (Ful-On Tri) holding on to first place from Elizabeth Hutson (Tri UK) and early starter Lucy Kershaw (Farnham Tri).

Elite athlete Sam Herridge made the journey over to Sussex as part of preparation for her early season races in Europe.  Herridge showed her class as she won the women’s sprint race and finished second overall. Team Raw Energy’s Niki Treacy and her club mate Trish Stewart took second and third.  Resident Aussie Jason Bewley (A2 Tri) warmed up his season with an emphatic win over James Stewart (Tom Hills Experience) and Tuff Fitty’s Stew Smith.
