Caunter first junior back at Ilfracombe Triathlon
TEIGNBRIDGE Trotter Adam Caunter was first junior and sixth overall at the Ilfracombe Triathlon.
Caunter was amongst 188 other triathletes at the notoriously hilly event.
Consisting of a 400m sea swim which was pretty choppy, a tough 25k bike ride and a final testing 6k run, Caunter finished in a time of 1.26.01, just two minutes behind the race winner.
Gary Caunter, Adam's dad, was in Somerset taking on the Midsomer Norton Sprint Triathlon.

A somewhat easier 400m pool swim, although the 25k bike was fairly hilly, finishing off with a two lap multi-terrain 5kishrun.
Caunter senior finished 44th out of a 159 competitors in 1.30.17, placing him sixth in the V45 category.
Helen Anthony travelled to Dorset to run the Beast, a scenic multi-terrain event starting at Corfe Castle.
The first half was a bottle neck so unless you started at the front it was slow going. She posted a time of 2.03.
Graeme Baker went to Saltram House near Plymouth to run the Saltram 10k on Saturday evening. He got around the two lapper in 58.18
Chris Rogers took himself to the first Bridgwater Half-Marathon
It was Rogers' second half and was aiming to run a sub-two hour time, but messed up his pace at the start and went a bit quick, so crossed the line at around 2:08.00.
Geoff Davey ran in a new race called Operation Reset. He was second in a time of 25.15.30.
Teignbridge Trotters Steve Wallace and Steve Rawlinson went down to Cornwall to run the Treggy 7 which starts in Launceston town centre and finishes at the castle.
Wallace posted a time of 1.03.46 and 236th of 357 and Steve Rawlinson 1.06.17 for 261st.
