World Championships 2014

I have been getting lots of emails ….. and YES it is TRUE!!! 

On behalf of Lincsquad the BQA would like to confirm we are holding the WORLD QUADRATHLON CHAMPIONSHIPS in 2014. The Brigg Bomber on 25th May will be hosting the Worlds! This is fantastic News for British Quadrathlon, and a Big Thanks to Lincsquad for taking on this event!

I can confirm that all 2014 BQA members will be eligible to race for ‘TEAM GB’ ….. so join the BQA, wear a GB Tri Suit, support your Governing Body … and Race in a World Championships! Lets help Lincsquad, give them the support they deserve and make this a World Championships to Remember!!

It would be fantastic if we could get a great team of quadrathletes racing for Great Britain at the World Championships in Brigg. The BQA is determined to field a large, competitive contingent of British athletes to chase for the medals in all the categories. Our last really large team was back in 2007, where we came home with a huge medal total as shown in the photo at Sedlcany, in Czech Republic.

The World Championships for 2014 will take place at the Brigg Bomber 25th May 2014, our first Quad of the year, and therefore there will not be an opportunity for Athletes to participate in other Quadrathlon Events in 2014 to assess their performance and eligibility. Therefore, GB Team applications for the 2014 World Championships at the Brigg Bomber, should base their eligibility on race performances during the previous season.

Our GB team Coordinator Ian Smith, will shortly sending invites out to our Top National Trophy Quadrathletes and those who raced consistently last season. But we do want to encourage as many of you to race for Team GB and apply to be a part of the 2014 GB team.

Any 2014 BQA member can apply to represent the Team at the World Championships, but please make sure you are a BQA member before you apply.

There are 4 steps to racing for ‘Team GB’

1. Join the  BQA

2. Fill in your GB Application Form

3. Send your Bomber Entry

4. Train …… there’s nothing like a commitment to ENHANCE the Training Regime!

GB Team guidelines on the website under ‘gb team’ this is where we will publish all the World Championship details for the Team, including information about ordering GB Tri suits, GB Gilets, GB Jackets/Fleeces.
