The True Wheels Cycle tri squad: (L-R) Rob Bele, Alex Evans, Mick Donnelly, Victoria Garden, Brian Woods, and Andy Kean.

The True Wheel Cycles team have won gold and bronze medals at last Sunday’s Kingscliff Triathlon.

The men’s sprint relay team of Andy Kean and Dean Cutting collected the gold medal in the category. Andy raced the swim and ride legs and recorded second fastest times in both, while Dean did the run and made the best time.

‘With perfect racing weather, as well as the swim going with the receding tide, the ride with a slight breeze, and cool running conditions, there were a lot of record fast times across the day,’ team member Mick Donnelly said.

The True Wheel Cycles mixed relay sprint team came third.

Victoria Garden started the team off with the swim, followed by Mick Donnelly on the ride and Brian Woods on the run.

In the mixed relay event the team of Alex Evans (swim), Jack Devine (cycle) and Rob Bele (run) took on a very large field and all did great times, but they missed out on a podium finish.

Matt Slee form the Byron Bay Triathlon club came fourth in the day’s main event, the Olympic triathlon.
