NE Dev Squad Saturday August 17 2019 Bishopton / Prissick Only 115 days to go!
Closed training session for members of the North-East region triathlon Development Squad
The first bit of the session will be an open water swim at Bishopton Lake.Â We aim to be in the water by 11.00, so aim to arrive by 10:40 to get in to wetsuit, etc.
The session will wrap up by 11:50 - athletes need to be prompt getting changed!
We'll then head to the Prissick cycle circuit (Marton Road, Middlesbrough, Cleveland TS4 3SA), which is about a 20 minute drive.Â We have the circuit booked from 1-3pm
All athletes will need swim, bike and run kit.Â For the swim - wetsuit, swim hat(s), goggles, plus towel, dressing gown, etc for changing.Â Once we get to the cycle circuit, we will be focussing on bike skills but bring appropriate kit for transition work - bring a road-worthy bike, helmet, bike kit or trisuit.Â Shoes with cleats are fine for athletes experienced in their use.Â Running in bike kit should be fine, but bring trainers.Â I'm not sure what facilities the venues have, but would recommend bringing a snack for the gap between the swim and the bike.
