Maurice Young has recently returned from Soria in Spain where he competed in the Sprint Duathlon European Championships. Soria is the beautiful provincial capital of Seville 3,488 ft above sea level. The out and back cycle course climbed up the hills outside the town before an exhilarating descent. The sloping run course was through trees in a picturesque park in the town.
Distances were 5k run, 20k bike and 2.5k run which Maurice completed in 2.07.56. Whilst Maurice was the only competitor in the 80 – 84 age category, thus claiming the age category title, he was not the last to finish overall in the race.
As a club we’re really proud of Maurice and pleased that he’s added another title to his belt. Photo of Maurice being interviewed after the race courtesy of the Federacion de Triatlon de Castilla y Leon.
