Ratscher World Sprint Championships 2013

The World Championships ‘Bergsee Quadrathlon’  Ratscher were held on Saturday 31st August. We only had 2 representatives from GB this year, which was a great shame our smallest ‘Team for 8 years! However both GB athletes came back with medals!

Congratulations to Ian Smith (bike photo) who finshed 6th overall winning V50 Gold in 3.08.10.Keith Longney took the Bronze also in Vet50 came 11th overall in 3.13.05. (kayak photo) It is good to see Keith back racing after a few years off the Quad race circuit. Well done Team GB!

It would be great to see a strong GB Team back at the World Championships in 2014 … maybe we ‘orgt’ to think about this for next season, it has always been a great trip out there, very friendly, good safe racing, beautiful scenery and rather nice beer too ….. am I selling it YET???
