The Byron Bay Breakers Triathlon Club has won the North Coast Interclub series for the second time after finishing on top of the table ahead of the Clarence Valley Stingrays and Hat Head Hammerheads.

It was a great result for a club in its fourth year, said Breakers’ president Deb Fuller.

‘We are very lucky to have such a tight knit group who care about each other and work towards a common goal. Even the members effected by the floods turned up to races with their livelihoods in disarray. That is such dedication and critical to the club spirit we’ve built,’ she said.

‘Nearly every member has a story to tell about their personal, physical and emotional struggles throughout the Triathlon season,’ she said.

In ominous signs for the other clubs in the North Coast, Deb confirmed the club is taking a few weeks off and hitting training hard during the winter to ensure athletes are stronger, faster and ready to go in season 2022/2023, where defending their title will be their main goal.
