It was not only those at elite level who got the chance to shine on WTS Bermuda day with some of the island’s potential young stars competing in the duathlon.

More than 100 aspiring Flora Duffys aged 15 and under took to the start line a few hours before Bermuda’s superstar to compete in a bike and a run down Front Street.

Despite the early start, the youngsters had probably the best of the weather with some keen competition taking place.
