Six members of Spalding Triathlon Club competed in the David Lloyd Lincoln Sprint Triathlon.

The sextet, ranging in age from the teens to the over fifties, competed over a 400m pool swim followed by a 24k bike and finally a 5k run.

The bike stage in this, one of the first triathlons of the year, included a testing climb before competitors tackled the run along the Fossdyke tow path.

The six from Spalding Triathlon Club were Jax Sesstein, Kayleigh Adams, Mike Staines, Ed Holliday, Chris Pithey and Alistair Rudd.

Staines, Rudd and Adams all finished second in their age groups while Holliday knocked five minutes off his time from last year as the club made an excellent start to the season,
