Capt Chaos, Crabbman and Slateman Savages

(Apologies for the lack of pics – we’re having issues with WordPress that is taking some sorting!)

Slateman 2016 by Gareth Crabb

Got a spare 15 mins? Grab a chair, a drink and have a read.  The Slateman journey started as many other race pacts…at an award ceremony fuelled with alcohol. ‘Take a Gander’ for summer Duathlon’s prize giving was the venue with a few of the usual suspects present, full of bravado, all giving the nod for this outing to Wales.

The eventual Lincsquad list for the Savage included Gary Horner, Mark Connolly, Paul Mcewan, Malc Marshall, Richard Anness and myself.  Competing in the Full distance were Rob Marshall and Steve Cannings.

So there was the line up, none of Lincsquad’s elite but a spirited, handsome bunch determined to do the club proud. Read the rest of this entry »

11 year old Jacob Riby takes on C2C for charity

My name is Jacob and am a member of the Youth Team at Lincsquad.

On the 28th May, I am going to be cycling the Coast to Coast (160miles) from St Bees to Whitby with my dad over 3 days. This will be a tough but rewarding challenge for me as I have never cycled this far over 3 days without a break in between!
I am doing this to raise money for the When You Wish Upon A Star Charity and any sponsorship would be greatly appreciated for this great charity that helped my friends little sister when she had cancer . Thank you x

This month’s Q&A with Lincsquad’s Youth member Will Walsh.

Will Walsh is Lincsquad’s first youth to feature in the monthly Q&A’s and it’s been quite a pleasure. Will has crossed over from racing to coaching relating to the kids in a way that can only come from, well ….a youth (apologies to the more mature coaches , no offence). Another feather in Will’s cap (as well as being a music journalist) is his position on the National Youth Executive panel.

Jane Taylor ETU Duathlon Championships.

The only word for the experience is surreal.  This was because

  1. It seemed utterly bizarre to be representing GB to the point where I never really believed it was happening.
  2. The setting was so extraordinary.  The GB Hotel and HQ had to be seen to be fully comprehended but had the quality, not exactly of a dream, more of a nightmare. We spent a lot of time hanging about Wunderland and it never lost its strangeness.  Both Suzanne and I had opted for accommodation off site and I think it is to this choice that we owe returning with our sanity largely intact.
