Sam Lee Triathlon success

Avid cyclist and sportswoman Sam Lee pushed herself to the extreme recently in Apigne, France.

On Saturday 10th May 2014, having taught a Spinning class at 9.30am and worked a full day at Les Quennevais Sports, and travelled over very choppy seas to St Malo before arriving in Renne at 10pm.

The following morning she was up at 6am and started preparations for the Apigné Triathlon.

Having checked the surroundings Sam completed a cycle on the roads, double checked her bike and enjoyed a short run in the beautiful surrounding countryside.

606 competitors from various countries but mostly from France entered the triathlon. 

As participants went through last minute preparations weather conditions changed from sunny and warm to cold and rainy.

The event comprised a 1.5km swim in the river Apigné, a 15m run on gravel to awaiting bikes, 40km 6 lap course, followed by 10km run.

Mixed weather conditions made the cycling course difficult, especially on corners.

Sam Lee Triathlon success

It was hard work, but Sam put her all into it and crossed the line in first place - 10 minutes in front of the nearest female competitor.  As the Premier Fille she enjoyed receiving the winner's presentation only to beat a hasty return drive to St Malo for an overnight kip before catching the 6am ferry to Jersey and cycling straight to Les Quennevais to work.  Phew, some challenge Sam.  Well done!  

Sam Lee Triathlon Queen!
