Around a year ago a new triathlon racing team was dreamt up over a few pints in a Yorkshire pub. Called Jackpot Racing, its founders wanted athletes aiming to “compete rather than complete”.
Other top age groupers racing this year in the team’s blue, black and white kit included Jenni Muston – who started her season with a win at the Oulton Park Standard Duathlon and went on to win the Leeds Triathlon in September – and Andrew Whitely, who finished second at the Ripon Triathlon then won the Buttermere Triathlon.
There are currently 23 athletes in the squad, with plans to add more elites and age-groupers for 2015. We’ll be keeping a close on their progress next race season…
