Since it's very first appearance in 1998, Mudgee Triathlon Club has taken a total of 10 Central West Interclub Series crowns with the last recorded in 2015, and this year could bring that total to 11.
The series that is held annually and invites triathlon clubs from Mudgee, Bathurst, Cowra, Orange and Dubbo will kick off it's first round on November 17 at Lawson Park, Mudgee.
Mudgee Triathlon secretary Giselle Denley says in order to take the overall win, the Devils need as many triathletes to participate as possible.
"We really like to encourage as many of our members to turn up as possible and we need to have participants across all age groups from 13 and over to come along and help us out," Giselle said.
Because we're hosting this round, it will be our best opportunity to get the max points for this race.Mudgee Triathlon secretary, Giselle Denley
"It's a combination of participation points from your club, so it encourages members just to turn up and participate for your club. On top of that, there are more points awarded for overall placings."
While each club hosts their own installment of the Series, this weekend is set to be a touch different with a Grand Prix style on offer, as well as the addition of Triathlon NSW taking care of the points system.
"We start with a run and that tends to separate the field a little bit so you haven't got 100 odd competitors jumping in the pool at once," Denley says.
"We'll give it a good crack, we're probably not the strongest club at the moment but with the new point system that Triathlon NSW have formulated, who knows.
"It'll be interesting to see how it all works out."
With a training session on Thursday night for transition speed, Denley says this training is where valuable seconds are likely to be optimised.
"Triathlon is not just swimming, running and riding, it's also about getting on and off your bike very quickly and putting shoes, helmets and goggles on very quickly," she said.
If you're quick at getting changed and getting on and off your bike, you can actually gain valuable seconds.
Round one of the Central West Interclub Series will be held on November 17 with the main race to start at 9.25am at Lawson Park.
