The European Duathlon Championships were held in Horst, Holland on 29th April and the races were divided into 5 year age groups. Ray Tucker, a member of Willesden Cycling Club, was selected to compete for Great Britain in the 70 – 75 year team.
Ray was in the silver medal position after the running phase behind a Dutchman but was caught on the cycle phase by a Belgian and Frenchman so got pushed into finishing in 4th place. Britain sent a team of 67 athletes and came back with 10 gold, 5 silver and 4 bronze.
