Lloyd Bebbington and Lee-Jay Watson showed a clean pair of heels and wheels to virtually all competitors in the Stoke-on-Trent City of Sport Triathlon on 10 September at Trentham Gardens.
Lloyd led for most of men’s Olympic distance race before being passed in the last few kilometres to take second place.
His wasn’t the only mishap. Richard Hall’s zipper pulled off his wet suit as he put it on, forcing a quick purchase of a replacement 10 minutes before the start.
Jason Riley also took second place in the super sprint event, in his first ever triathlon.
NTC beat local rivals Niteriders into second spot in both the sprint and Olympic distance championship – winning a local Potteries-made glass vase.
The two teams shared the podium following the presentation in a show of friendly rivalry.
