Saturday saw Steve W involved in his second world duathlon sprint qualifier in under a week. This time the event was held at Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire and was in the standard format of: Run 5K / Bike 20K / Run 2.5K.
The event was massively subscribed and somewhere in the region of 450 competitors took to the start line. As at Oulton Park the weekend before, the level of competition was high and though still lacking some bike speed, Steve managed a 2nd in age group finish and a better-than-could-be-hoped-for 18th overall.
This year's world duathlon age-group championships are to be held in Pontevedra in Spain and it is probable that Steve will qualify for the GB team in a strong position. Only one qualifying race remains before the full team is announced.
