Simon George Outlaw X 2019 Elite Mens WinnerMonday, 30th September 2019
The new Outlaw X course at Thoresby Park featured 1100+ athletes mark Outlaw’s ten-year anniversary in North Nottinghamshire. Our very own Lincoln based Simon George won the elite men's race, setting a new course record in the process. Simon had only just returned to training after a serious bike crash and came very close to winning the Outlaw Half Nottingham in 2016 but was agonisingly overtaken in the final metres of the run.
He said: “I crashed in June last year, which ended my season and most of this one. When I found out Iain (Hamilton, Race Director) was putting on a race in September, I thought that would give me perfect motivation to come back. I was only able to start training in March.”
Impsport provided Simon with the latest in triathlon suit technology for the race: the Impsport T2 Sleeved Tri-Suit. Officially released in the 3rd quarter of 2019 the new T2 Tri-Suit has been designed in conjunction with Sally Cowan Ltd, a garment Prototyping Company specialising in Elite Sportswear. The Impsport T2 Sleeved Tri-Suit features a technical fit and utilises specialist fabrics in key areas for maximum aerodynamic and speed gain.
