Halstead Road Runner and Multi-sport professional Maurice Young completed the Cambridge Duathlon. This was the 3rd of the qualifying races for the World Championships. The Race from Bottisham Village College near Newmarket consisted of a 7.5K run, 40K bike, 7.5K run. Over a pretty rural course with a few hills, the runs were 1 lap each and the bike two and half laps. The main challenge was the wind which became stronger as the race progressed, the side wind on the last lap made keeping a straight course difficult. Maurice’s times were - 1st run 48.28, bike 1.46.13, 2nd run 53.13 Transitions 4.,53 overall time 3.32.37. Two minutes faster than his 2010 time.
