AVR’s Sibley and son perform well at Weymouth Bay Triathlon
Father and son, Tim and James Sibley entered the Weymouth Bay Triathlon Project last Sunday and the AVR pairing were very pleased with the results, writes Dave Mutter.
Sibley juniors’ recent improvements showed again when he came 11th in 1:33:51, second in the 18-29 category.
Sibley senior came seventh taking 1:31:48, 3rd in the 40-49 category.
Both of them they find the swimming hardest part, it is meant to be 750m for a sprint, but it worked out closer to 1km.
James completed the swim in 22:48 and Tim in 21:54. James was faster on the bike and completed the 20k course in 38:20 and Tim in 38:24.
