Welcome to triSport Taupo's new and (hopefully) improved website. This is a work in progress so bear with us while we get organised. Hopefully it is easy to find your way around and full of interesting "stuff". If you have any ideas, links, articles, comments etc please contact me (see the Contact link). The News link will have all the current information and news (surprisingly..) and then it will be transferred to a relevant page.
Huge thanks to Dale Robinson who is responsible for all the pics on the site. Dale is a talented photographer who takes fantastic photos at many of our events. Check out her facebook page - Dale Robinson Photography NZ - to see some more action shots from the past season.
Remember to let us know what you think of the site and keep sending info through to be put on it .
I have updated the WWAUT page with the Kinloch Off Road Challenge results, quite a few of us were out there enjoying the great conditions. We should all be in training mode now for the start of the season on 13 October. Hopefully I have managed to put the calendar on the membership page, bear with me if its not there, I will get there eventually!!
GOOD LUCK to Cameron Paul who leaves on the 18th to train in the warm conditions and smooth roads of Kona. We wish him well for both the Ironman World Champs and the Xterra World Champs (some people are just GREEDY!) and having seen just how hard he has trained over winter a good result in both events is assured. Good luck also to Mark Burke (not a club member yet but he will be this season) and the ageless Neil Fleming who are also both competing at Kona.
Check out the What We Are Up To page to see the great results our athletes had over the weekend. TWO national champs no less!!
Club members Kyle Smith and Ellie Heenan raced in the Aquathon at the World Champs in Edmonton, Canada, today. In hot conditions Ellie finished 9th in her age group and Kyle WON the Elite Under 19 category (and he is only 16!!!). Awesome stuff!! The tri and para-tri are raced over the next few days so go hard Ellie, Matt Webber and Russell Watts. I will post results when they are available. Also best wishes to those racing at the Duathlon champs on Sunday. The club has a garage to store gear/hang out in so the weather won't be a problem whatever it is!!
From now on I will try and put the date I update this site and what it is I have done. That way you don't get bored looking at the same old stuff. So I have pulled over all the results from the old web page. They are in the Results page (tricky huh??) Think you might have to use the alt and arrow buttons to go back to the results page, not sure as I have been doing this all on the ipad which is a bit different to a computer......they are all there though which is the main thing. There is an update on the What We Are Up to (WWAUT) page about our star Matt. And today Matt Webber, Ellie Heenan, Russell Watts and Kyle Smith left our shores for Canada for the World Champs. Our best wishes go with them.
Remember to come out and support/help/ compete at the Duathlon champs on Sunday 31 August and remember to send me news, views, photos etc so I can keep us all informed.
Oh and the season starts with a Duathlon on 13 October at the AC Baths, distances 1.8/10/1.8 or 1/10/1. Registration at 5.30, race starts promptly at 6. See you there!
We now have a Facebook link. I'm not overly technically minded and whatever I have done isn't quite right so when you see the messge on the page click the "open in new window" bit and you will get to the page anyway. Isnt technology marvellous???!!!
Check out the new hoodies on the uniform page. Beeeeeaaaautiful!!
We have heaps of new info on the What We are Up To Page, see who has done what.
