A tiring last week with the RAF Waterpolo Squad training for the upcoming Inter-Service Championships. There aren’t many other sports where the opposition players use near drowning as a deliberate tactic.
Fantastic Efforts by the RAF Snowboarders at the RAF100 Sports for Kids Event on Thursday!
We Engaged with almost 500 primary and secondary school children at grass roots level telling the RAF Snowboarding story and what we do along side our primary RAF role.
In result this has helped the RAF connect with the general public and to Inspire many to think about Snowboarding as a sport to overwhelming positve feedback. Cheers all and keep shredding! 🤙🏽 #RAF100#RAFSnowboarding#AirTanker#Inzpire#RAFSportsLottery#RAFSportsFederation#NoOrdinaryJob @airtanker @inzpire_limited
Proud to be crowned the @raftriathlon female Standard distance champion 2018 this morning.
With how things have being going recently I wasn't in a good place going into the race, mentally or physically, but the amazing team spirit & support both before + during the race geed me up and it went better than I thought it would. Thanks again to the awesome team members who travelled from all over the country to support us today!
9 RAF Enduro Team members recently took part in the Whyte British Enduro Championship in the Tweed Valley, Scotland. Racing 500 other riders on the technical trails above the village of Innerleithen they were also competing against 13 Army and Navy personnel for the Interservice Championship title.
Ian Churchill set the quickest time of the day beating the top Army rider by just 9 seconds to be crowned 2018 Interservice Enduro Champion.
The RAF had 3 riders in the top 5 military finishers guaranteeing the RAF were the 2018 Enduro Team Champions.
A big thank you to everyone who supports RAF Cycling.
When you’re just not quite tall enough to take a first time shot...
A good few days training with the RAF Waterpolo Team last week. We’re starting to feel that match sharpness come together.
Bring on the Army and Navy at the Interservice Championships in 4 weeks time. #interservices#waterpolo#lightblue
Last week, I was fortunate enough to carry the RAF100 Baton on the latest leg of its journey. Tasked to swim from a boat off Newborough Beach and deliver the Baton to an RAF horse rider, I contemplated going in trunks alone. Thankfully I opted for the wetsuit as no-one needs to see that, it was also pretty chilly at 9 degrees centigrade. I was, however wearing my RAF Waterpolo trunks under the wetsuit as well as repping the RAF Swimming hat.
Thanks to Cpl Scott Robertson of RAF Valley Photo Section for the picture.
Did anybody else fly into the Bank Holiday weekend like WO Adey Hoyle?
Phoenix Cycleworks, Kentford, hosted Mud Sweat and Gears round 4 In the sun. For a course in Suffolk, very flat, it featured many technical features including drop offs, berms and table tops. Many or which will feature in the National Series course and the RAF Championships on the 20th June.....SAVE THE DATE!
WO Adey Hoyle struggled with the unusually hot weather and managed 19th in a larger than usual Vets field. He will be racing next in the upcoming RBL Road Series.
Fantastic day at Inter Services Duathlon against Army and Navy! So happy to take 4th place improving on my 5th place last year. People say 4th is the worst place but sometimes it just really isn’t and today is one of those days. Did not expect that when I pitched up today after a rough rocky few months of training I thought I’d be lucky to get round! The team did amazing too and so proud to race with all these lovely ladies and gents, 🥈🥈 for men and ladies! Well done to everyone!!! This race also doubled up as the @raftriathlon Duathlon Champs. 🥈 for me and again pretty damn happy. Well done to @lucynell15 and @sammy_rose_tri always pushing us all! Top athletes 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻. @royalairforceuk @raf_association_scot_and_ni @giantlincoln @rafcentralfund #rafsportsfederation#rafsportslottery#noordinaryjob#sportwednesday#lovemyjob#keepingfit#dontstop#runbikerun#britishtriathlon#teammates#healthycompetition#toughconditions#lovesport
