I hope it has been a great week of training for all of you and that you are all fit, healthy and well!
As we all know Triathlon is actually made up of 5 disciplines, swim, bike, run, transition and…. a good party!! So, in light of that, Dinamic will be holding and end of year/ beginning of tri season braai. The thoughts are to either have a get together after Slanghoek (27 October) or the weekend after that (2/3 November) where will do an open water swim at Silvermine followed by a braai at Dinamic in Noordhoek. We will go with the majority decision although, if both get great feedback, then we will do both! Please let Tracy know by next week Thursday (24 October).
Welcome to our new athletes: Francoise Knoetze, Andre Serfontein, Mandy Simpson, Lizelle Thompson and Celeste Blake!
Then a huge congrats goes out to the following athletes for fantastic racing at the Gun Run, all achieving new PB’s: Claire La Manach, Boyd Roberts, Alvin Gouws, Morne Botha.
Our TriRock Robben Island also raced really well, congrats to Lee Hutchinson and Noel Frost.
Also, (the Dinamic athletes are on fire!) we say a big well done to Mariette Swanepoel for fininshing 4th in the Hobbit trail run (42km), Ewert Kleynhans wo finished 13th overall and 6th in his category at Afriman and Olivia Alfhein for finishing a15 km swim realy in a team.
There are a lot of races coming up and we wish Nicky Greyling, who is starting the Bridge MTB stage race on Sunday, the best of luck, along with all the athletes riding the Bestmend Satelite classic race – go fly the Dinamic flag high!
Then, on that note, we ask (with tears in our eyes!!) to please make sure that your coach is aware of the races you are planning to do. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but if you are planning to suddenly do a race it will affect your program before and after your race.
