Edinburgh

How many members?

What is your team’s focus (e.g. Road races, crits, TT’s, stage races, drinking beer and eating pizza, missing race starts, having fun etc.)?
Triathlon, Duathlon, Aquathlon…basically if it ends in 'thon' we'll have a go.

What is the strangest thing that has happened to, or within, your team?
Anyone else ever managed to fall off a turbo trainer and take out a load of athletes next to you?? No…we have!! We were also featured in 220 Triathlon Magazine last year which was very exciting! 

Does your team have a local claim to fame (e.g. most stylish kits, biggest riders, most likely to win a fight in the car park)?
Probably just our number of podiums – over 120 through the 2016 and 2017 seasons.

Do you promote an annual race?
The plan is to launch and run at least one event in 2018. The aim is to come up with something that gives back to the Scottish/UK Tri community, it’s athletes and coaches.

Anything else you would like to add about your team?
The Hartree JETS was and is set up to offer the highest quality training and athlete support to professionally minded, dedicated amateur and emerging elite triathletes who are not otherwise supported through sponsorship, funding or the national governing body. For the 2017-2018 season we have a new coach Scott Findlay to help share the coaching work and take the quality of coaching we offer even further forward.
