2011 BVI Mountain Bike Club Event Calendar
Chris Ghiorse won the 2010 BVI Steelman with a time of 2:32:07 on Sunday, October 24th. This is an olympic distance triathlon with a one-mile swim held in Well Bay on Beef Island, followed by a 25-mile bike race lapping the road from the airport to just into East End, and ending in a six-mile run along the roads and trails of Trellis Bay.
An impressive grid featuring no less than five former triathlon race winners lined up Saturday morning for BVI Triathlon Federation’s first national sprint championship over an exciting new course at Soper’s Hole including brand new Chris Spencer designed bike racks and 5 foot monster swim buoys.
Tension on the start line ran high in a wide open men’s event featuring Andrew “Tubes” Thompson, lightning quick on the bike but vulnerable on the run, Adrian “Road Runner” Dale a wing heeled runner, but vulnerable on the swim, Adrian “Transylvanian Express” Copacaneau , the fastest triathlete this side of Romania, Antony “Chorpedo” Spencer strong in the water but vulnerable on the bike, and Owen Waters all round tough hombre.
Andrew “Tubes” Thompson took control of the TRIBVI event shortly after the swim course and led all the way to victory in 1 hour 1 minute, 28 seconds last Sunday at Nanny Cay. The event featured an altered course of a 400 meter swim, in the Nanny Cay lagoon. Four charged the course that also included a 12-mile bike from Nanny Cay down to Frenchman’s Cay junction in West End and back to Nanny Cay, and a five-mile run from Nanny Cay to Pockwood Pond and back to Nanny Cay.
