High Peak Tri members secure their GB places

MEMBERS of High Peak Triathlon Club have secured their places to represent Great Britain at next year’s European Age Group Triathlon Championships in Turkey.

By finishing first in her age group race at Grendon Lakes back in mid-May, Nicola Dick, from Monyash, has already secured her place for the shorter sprint distance event.

Joanne Baker, from Whaley Bridge, confirmed her selection for the longer Olympic distance race with an excellent spirited performance at Rutland Water.

Despite somewhat testing conditions, she finished in an excellent time of two hours and 33 minutes, having raced the previous weekend in a 3.8km open water event at Ullswater.

By coming third in his age group race last weekend at Bedford, David Davidson, from Great Longstone, also managed to clinch his GB team place.
