It was great to get back to an almost full National Trophy Series this year. Sadly Shrewsbury had to be cancelled, but we still had 4 excellent races in our calender, The Brigg Bomber (World Cup Event also) Dearne Valley Sprint, Bude Awesome Foursome, and The Brigg Sprint. On behalf of the BQA I’d like to say a Huge THANK YOU to all our Race organizers and volunteers, who work so hard each year to put on these events for us, it is a big commitment and we really do appreciate your time! Thanks also to all the Sponsors who support them, and to you the BQA Members for you annual fees, which are vital so we can run the BQA Governing Body and more important provide the ever important Insurance fees to be able to support the Race Organizers…. Big Thanks!
This year we had we had 41 male athletes and 15 female athletes racing in the series, but only 1 athlete managed to do all 4 races ….. a huge well done to Phillippe Jumeau! It has been a difficult season for many of us, with injuries and other life issues, but lets hope 2024 will bring a fresh start, plenty of motivation and lots more of Quadrathletes back in ACTION!!
Well done and a big thank-you to all Quadrathletes that raced in the series, there have been some excellent performances and big improvements for may athletes this season, its been great to see some old faces back into our sport and as always so good to be welcoming newcomers, we hope to see you all again next year!
