It's been a busy few weeks for British triathlete David Bishop with the Windsor Triahlon, U23 European championships and most recently the The Jenson Button Trust Triathlon. Here is a quick update on the eventful season Bishop is having:
The U23 European Triathlon Championships in Russia
"I was expecting and hoping for a good result there. I knew I was in great run shape judging by Windsor, so went out there really looking to nail the swim to put me in a decent position for the run. I knew I could take care of myself on the bike.
However things didn’t go as I had hoped. The race wasn’t terrible but it wasn’t great either. My swim was fairly good, however when it came to the bike and run it seemed I had left my legs back in the UK… I just felt completely flat.
I managed to finish 16th in the end, which wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t what I went there to achieve."
The Jenson Button Trust Triathlon
Now in its third year, Bishop joined the Formula 1 star at his charity triathlon event in Luton Hoo, Bedfordshire.
After a great start on the swim and and bike David finished an impressive second place; "I loved the race. I got to race alongside three athletes I really look up to…. It’s not often I will get to do that again. The day was a really enjoyable day as well, so to finish 2nd place topped off a great weekend!"
