so here I am
I have complete Shropshire in a time within 116% of the winner so I am halfway through to my qualification for the GB Age Group Team.
- swim 00:31:28
- T1 00:01:14
- cycle 01:14:27
- T2 00:01:02
- run 00:50:29
OVERALL 02:38:50 CAT POSITION 8
but I want to qualify automatically that I have to place to the first 4 eligible athletes in my age group.
Any athlete finishing within 120% of the winner of their age-group will only be offered a place at the Team Manager’s discretion.
I am 116.82% and now there is two more races that I can try to place in first 4 and get automatic qualification awarded or wait when those two qualifier races (witch are Liverpool and Worthing) will get results then there is Rolldown percentages it means 120% of the winner of their age-group may still be able to qualify with this a rolldown place.
Anyway I dont like waiting and even if I am now halfway through my qualification that I really want the "Q" next to my name and race in 2017 Kitzbuhel ETU Standard Distance Triathlon European Championships!
So I have made my decision. Instead of waiting for *Rolldown" I will try to place in first 4 athletes in Liverpool on 14.8 or Worthing on 28.8! I need to get faster 5-10 minutes in each discipline. It means 1500m swim under 26 minutes, 40km bike under 1hr 10 minutes and 10 km run under 40 minutes in 2 months from now.
As a time runs from start to finish, with no breaks in-between and I am aiming to do it in 1 hr 25mins maybe a bit under .
Let the game begin :) ✌🏼🏊🏼🚵🏼🏃🏼
