Barley Mill Pub Bare Bones- Results

2014 Results are up!  Thanks again to our sponsors, the Barley Mill Pub, Lake Breeze Winery, the Bike Barn, Peach City Runners, Swagman Racks, Steve and Jean King, Don Gemmell, Cob's Bread, Peach Classic Triathlon and Parkway Chevron.  Special thanks to all of our volunteers, without them, this race would not be able to take place!  Photos are getting posted on Facebook, on the Penticton Triathlon Club page.  Thanks to Vlad Zamecnik for the photos!

It was an exciting day as the Barley Mill Pub Bare Bones Duathlon was the provincial duathlon championships. A number of new athletes, along with many we had not seen for a while, arrived to compete in Penticton. Former Canadian elite triathlete Kelly Guest brought his group of elite junior triathletes to compete as part of their training weekend. This is the first year to include “Teams” as a category in the duathlon.

Newsflash - Barley Mill Pub Duathlon

It looks to be an interesting race for Saturday.  We have Nathan Champness registered, after winning the inaugural Cherry Blossom Triathlon, Jen Annett (Challenge 3rd place), and Gary & Dannica Wade (podium finishers from '13).  Thus far the reigning champions, Graham Hood and Malindi Elmore have not signed up.  Some elite juniors that train with Kel, ly Guest are planning to race on Saturday.  I've heard that Justin Birks is planning to race (previous IMC age group champion), and Chad Reid of Kelowna.  So, for the BC Provincial Duathlon championships, it is looking to be a wide open challenge!!

Road Safety

Reminder to all cyclists to ride single file.  Share the Road.  Be especially careful on East Side Road.  Be cautious of irate vehicle drivers.  A silver/grey medium size pick up truck drove across the yellow centre line attempting to force a local cyclist off the road while riding up Green Mtn. Road on Friday May 31 afternoon.  Try to get license numbers to report such incidences to RCMP.

June 4, 2013  Jeff Symonds swam Sicamous to Peach and back, this sunny afternoon, and said it was quite nice.  Weather is finally warm!!

Triclub supporting the pool

The Penticton Triathlon club earlier this year, asked if the community center pool needed some equipment, and offered to donate some money to purchase such equipment.  On October 24, the Penticton Triathlon Club presented pool staff member Amanda Lust with a cheque for $1666.06 towards the purchase of new penant flags, lane signs and flippers.

The Peach Classic Triathlon Society, in recognition of Investors Group support for many years, is wishing to donate some money to 2 groups that Investors Group recommended.  The recipients of financial support from the Peach Classic Triathlon Society are the Keremeos Kids Triathlon Club, and the Okanagan Falls Kids of Steel triathlon.
