Great Result for the King Cain Bathurst Wallabies Triathlon Club:

Unofficially Bathurst Wallabys Triathlon Club has recorded it best result in recent memory at the  2017 Triathlon NSW Club Championships held last weekend at Gosling Creek Reserve, Orange.

To be guaranteed of scoring performance points in the championship each club members need to finish in the top 30 of each age category. However a top 50 ranking in the Age Category is still likely to still receive points due to extra restrictions in accruing points.
 
Bottom line - Kathleen Stutsel, Lesley Collier, Danielle Patterson, Illana Latham, Madhu Tamilarasan, Mark Windsor & Darren Fenton all featured in the top 30 rankings and therefore where guaranteed performance points for the Bathurst Club. The extra good news was that Luke Patterson & Alex MacQuarrie both made the Top 50 ranking with Alex very likely to score Performance Points and Luke backing up Darren Fenton great performance in the 45-49yrs division.

Of course we shouldn’t forget the Junior Events which included a category win for local star Mitch Nelson who won the 13yrs male race and 8 overall in the 13-14yrs Wave.

Waiting on the official announcement of the clubs ranking in 2016/17.. stay tuned

Inland NSW are very excited about Triathlon NSW bring their Club Champs to the Central West of NSW.

The obvious availability of swim venues on the coast means that the sport can be hosted in many locations along the coastline however it’s a lot more difficult to get a suitable swim locations inland.
 
Therefore it is exciting to see a local council rewarded for developing a purpose made Tri Venue by the state body awarding one of its most financial triathlon promotions “the Club Champs” to the new Gosling Creek Reserve at Orange.

Somewhere between 600 to 1000 athletes are expected to race the 2016/17 Championships but this promotion has the added bonus that a lot more extras travel to the event due to the club based social environment developed around the championships. Bottom line is there will be a lot of athlete support heading to Orange to officiate, spectate and celebrate. 

Clearly the benefits are on both sides Orange Council is set for a huge financial boost from the promotions, while the sport of Triathlon gets a now purpose made venue away from the coast where congestion and the rapid urban growth is forcing the cycle and run legs onto tighter at tighter courses.

Western NSW’s Primed for 2016/17 NSW Triathlon Club Championships

It’s been a lean few years for King Cain Bathurst Wallabies Triathlon Club in the NSW Club Champs however 2017 set to be a good one with a strong local team set to represent the club at the titles.
 
Last year the local club didn’t feature in the State Rankings and before that Bathurst Club was again unlucky, finishing towards the bottom of the pointscore after Josh Stapley suffered a heavy fall in the annual championship which was first held in 1994.

It seems Bathurst’s 46 points in 2011 is the clubs best performance, that year the Bathurst Wallabies finish 25th overall and 6th in the Division 3 title, which incidentally was won by neighboring Central West Triathlon Club Mudgee Red Devils.
 
This year another of the local Tri Clubs Orange Piranhas is one of the favorites to win the Div 2 championship after being regraded down from Div 1 in 2015-16 when they finished 12th overall behind the State most successful club in the championship Warringah. The Division 1 title again looking to be a battle between Warringah and The Hills.
