I have great memories of my race at Stockton Duathlon last year, including just outsprinting fellow Leeds Bradford Triathlon Club mate and training partner Eleanor Haresign for the win. So I was returning to the North East to try and retain my title. Unfortunately it wasn't to be - Eleanor got her revenge this year and outclassed me on the day. Well done Ele, top racing. I finished 2nd in the Stockton Standard distance Duathlon, a decent start to the 2015 race season.
