Clarky Smashes Course Record to Win the 2011 Brigg Bomber

Steve Clark smashed the course record with 2hrs39m17s to take the win at this years Brigg Bomber.

The annual quadrathlon takes place in Brigg using the River Ancholme for the swim of 1500m and then an 8km kayak before heading off on local roads for the 36km cycle and the 10km run finally finishing off in Brigg centre, to the cheers of the crowd.

This year was blessed with excellent weather and one of the best turnouts we have seen. The mass start was split into two waves with 75% solos and the rest made up of teams.
