The Byron Breakers have kept their position at the top of the ladder of the North Coast Interclub Triathlon Series after some stunning victories at round two, held at Yamba the weekend before last.
‘I am incredibly proud of our team as this time last year most of the crew were attempting a mini triathlon for the first time,’ club member Deb Fuller said.
‘They have come a long way in such a short time. One member was so determined to finish that she rode on a flat tyre for the last 10km of the cycle.
‘The Byron Breakers absolutely smashed it out there,’ she said.
