Triathletes, past and present, at the 2020 National 10-mile TT Championship
Following the 100-mile event two weeks ago, this past weekend saw the shortest distance of the annual National Championship Cycling Time Trial event take place in Berkshire.
As is now common, we spotted plenty of multisport-connected names, from the current and past performing well, recording some fast times… and winning medals too.
The men’s title was won in convincing style – 22 seconds is a significant margin over such a short distance – by Dan Bigham. Now fully immersed on the world of cycling of course, Bigham was a GB Age-Group triathletes and duathlete, back in the day. He still has very close ties to triathlon too, through his development work with HUUB around their high performance apparel such as the Anemoi range, and of course for his bike-fitting expertise, which has been gratefully received by many a triathlete.
After her ride at the ‘100’ was ended by a puncture, pro triathlete Kimberley Morrison took the Bronze medal in the women’s race, clocking a speedy 21:12 over a distance which is perhaps a little short for her liking. More from Kimberley on her race, and how the 2020 season (!) has gone for her, in a separate feature coming very soon.
