James McKenzie runs for Tweed Shire Council

James McKenzie is running as an ungrouped candidate running in the upcoming Tweed Council election and is from Eungella.

Competitors enjoyed near-perfect conditions for the Tweed Enduro on the weekend.

The True Wheel Cycles team have lived up to expectations after taking third place in the mixed-team relay event of the Tweed Coast Enduro at Pottsville on the weekend.

It was the fifth top-three finish for the team in local triathlons since November 2016.

Alex Evans led the team out with a strong swim backed up by a fast-paced ride form Dave Martin that had the team in fifth spot, with the run to come.

Rob Bele stepped up and powered past two teams to give the team third place by just 25 seconds.

Byron Bay’s Matt Slee continued his strong form, backing up his 2017 win with another gold finish in the open men’s event. Katey Gibb was first in the open females.

More than 560 participants plus an estimated 1,700 spectators were on hand to witness lively races in both the sprint and endurance long course.

Despite concerns over an impending heat wave, athletes were presented with overall favourable conditions.

‘Racing conditions were fantastic,’ said race director Mike Crawley. ‘Speaking to the athletes after the race, many had achieved new personal bests.’
