Byron triathletes at Kingscliff.

After a successful debut at the recent Kingscliff Triathlon the Byron Breakers are now leading the competition in the North Coast Interclub Triathlon series. 

Byron Bay got home, ahead of the Clarence Stingrays and the Ballina Seahorses.

In all, seven clubs, including those based in the Tweed Valley, Coffs Harbour, Hat Head and Port Macquarie compete in the series.

President of the Byron Bay Triathlon Club, Deb Fuller, told Triathlon NSW that she hopes the team has plenty more wins.

 ‘The team is extremely committed to the series, and super keen to show we can punch above our weight and knock off some of the bigger clubs in the region’. 

There is strong team camaraderie amongst the 30-odd members in the club. 

‘Our team are travelling together to these beautiful coastal locations, with our families to enjoy an active holiday. The social side is very attractive to members. Plus the series is fun, they love the camaraderie of it!”

Deb puts a lot of that down to the North Coast Interclub Series, and their third place in ICS01. This just left them hungry for more, and with the shift of Club Champs to Forster on 23 May 2020, the Byron Breakers could make their debut in this Interclub Grand Final race.
