True Wheels triumph at triathlon

True Wheel triathletes: (L to R) Rob Bele, Alex Evans, David Martin, Andy Kean and Mick Donnelly.

The True Wheel Cycles team was up against another 1,200 competitors in the Kingscliff Triathlon last Sunday and earned two podium finishes.

In the Olympic mixed relay event Alex Evans, David Martin and Rob Bele got bronze, while Andy Kean and Mick Donnelly picked up a silver medal in the men’s sprint relay.

Conditions were tough and made for hard racing. ‘It was a very hot, windy and smoky day,’ Mick said.

The 18th edition of the Kingscliff Triathlon included 150 junior athletes aged from 7 to 12 who were competing as part of the South Coast Inter-Schools trials.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
