London juniors show off new hoodies March 26, 2016 11:16

 
LRTS is a special group of the top 50 young triathletes across the London region. The squad meets monthly and there’s tough competition for selection. Members are aged between 11 to 16 with an even split of males and females.
 
The lucky members were presented with customised hoodies from Tribe Junior at a training session at Herne Hill Velodrome.
 

Squad member Ben Bison, 11, above, was delighted to receive his hoody. He said:

“I felt very privileged to receive my hoodie and to be part of the London Junior Triathlon squad.

When I have been wearing it lots of people have been asking about the London Tri series."

Tribe Junior is a young company providing triathlon kit for junior triathletes. It’s offering a wide selection of kit from some of the leading brands, including wet suits, tri suits and accessories. 

“We are delighted to continue our support with the London Region Junior Squad.  After meeting the squad at their training session it was clear to see what a dedicated, hard- working and talented squad they have this year. We wish them all huge success for the race season ahead." said Paula Blake-Pead from Tribe Junior.

Gaining a place on the LRTS is fiercely contested and the envy of club members all over London. Selection is made at the end of each season based on performances in the Junior Series.
