Next on the agenda was HELLS BELLS....and, once again Team MD's were victorious....smashing out 12 hours of racing to come in ahead of their nearest rivals - the lovely guys from SCAR.... The Tri Adventure Turtles were victorious in the female category of the Fairy Bells event...and the Tri Adventure Pickle Lickers (?) got a podium finish in that one too!  Aunty Jan, alsongside Susie Blissner and Julie Wiseman tackled the full Hells Bells course and raced for nearly 22hours to placed2nd female team in the difficult event....
