COTSWOLD Water Park was the focal point for Warwickshire squad Do3 when athletes competed in the aquabike – a contributing race to Do3’s Grand Prix of fixtures for the season, as well as the standard distance triathlon.

The weekend Cotswold Lake 62 Aquabike was made up of a 1,500m open-water swim and 36km cycle and Alison Robbins, Jeremy Emmett and Ben Phyall all took top four spots in their age groups with times of 1:45, 1:42 and 1:27 respectively.

St├ęphane Egot-Lemaire, Ines Carrera, Vicki Hill and Laura Castle competed in the triathlon event, made up of a 1,500m swim, 36km cycle and 9km run, with times of 2:19, 2:29, 2:41 and 2:41 respectively.

Paul Nash was in form at the Bedford Triathlon – a standard distance event over a 1,500m swim, 40km bike and 10km run. He completed the event in 3:17 and was fourth in his age group.

At the Oxonian Cycling Club 50-Mile Time Trial, Marcus Gaskell set a blistering pace and completed the course in 2:09.

Do3 head coach Dave Knight said: “We’ve had another weekend of solid performances in all disciplines and having such fantastic sponsor partners has helped us to perform at this level.

“My thanks go to Everyone Active, Yonda Sport and Thanyapura Health & Sports Resort for helping with our swim, Cycle Republic for cycling, Xendurance for fuelling athletes on race day and to Shires Physio who keep everyone in top form.”
