Castle Series Olympic Triathlon

LB CastleWin

Two of the Byram family, Lucy and Lewis were taking on another event in the Castle Series at the Olympic Triathlon distance of 1500m swim 40k bike and 10k run.  This being a non drafting race the men and ladies set off at the same time early on the morning of the 25th of August at Chateau de Chantilly, just North of Paris France.

First out of the water with a lead of 40 seconds was Lewis, followed shortly after by Lucy after a super swim in 4th place overall.  Then they were out on the tough course around the area of Chantilly over 40k before heading back to the Castle to run the final 10k around the stunning grounds.  Lewis got caught on the last part of the bike but not being on a time trial bike probably lost him time but was very happy to take second place in a time of 2:05:11 seconds.

But it was top of the podium for Lucy coming home to take the ladies race in a time of 2:20:56, over 10 minutes in front of the next lady.  This was a great performance following her second place at Castle Howard in July behind fellow Holmfirth Harrier and Olympian Lucy Hall. 

The following weekend, Saturday 31st August, still in France this time closer to the Alps, Lewis raced for his French team and finished just outside the top 10 in 11th his best place for the team this season in a very competitive challenging race. 

Next up for Erica to close her season will be on the continent racing for her French race team on the 21st and 29th of September.  While Lucy has the final race in the Castle Series at Hever Castle in Kent on the 29th of September.  Good luck to them both.
