Strathcyde Results of another great turnout at the Club Target race at Strathclyde Standard (Scottish champs) on 18th May. Excellent ET turn out, congratulations to Keira,  third female. Top ET was Joe Tomaney in 9th (although Martin Gore was 6th but competing under ERC we'll let him off) followed by new boy Jon Reilly then Michael Cunningham even though he had a run in with another bike but picked himself up and kept going, what a trouper. Another ET podium winner was Pat Angus who was top vintage female.  An excellent well organised triathlon with superb weather and the water was a balmy 15 degrees. On the swim we had to climb up a ramp onto the pontoon and then either dive or jump back into the water for the second lap. It  certainly made it more interesting and we had to exit the same way, (unless on exiting you don't quite get  fully on the ramp and have to be dragged out!) (Photo: Mike Brown)
