The True Wheels Cycles team took third place in the mixed-team event at the Tweed Coast Enduro triathlon held at Pottsville last Saturday.
They were up against more then double the teams than last year but in cooler conditions.
The long course of the event includes a 1.9-kilometre swim, 90 km bike ride and a 21.1 km run.
Alex Evans was equal first out of the water to give the True Wheels Cycles a good start.
Dave Martin’s fast-paced ride kept them in fourth position.
Then Rob Bele once again powered past a team to claim third with four minutes to spare.
German triathlete Michael Raelert, the 2008 and 2009 world champion, won the open men’s event.
Brisbane local Emily Donker was first in the open females.
Over 650 triathletes took part in both the short course sprint race and the long endurance course.
The event is run under a not-for-profit foundation and organisers were hoping to raise over $6,500 for local charities: Cabarita Surf Life Saving Club, and a number of other community groups including Tweed Raiders JRL, Pottsville Cricket Club, Murwillumbah CWA, Pottsville Men’s Shed, and the Pottsville Croquet Club.
