Profile: Jackpot Racing goes from pub to podiums
Around a year ago a new triathlon racing team was dreamt up over a few pints in a Yorkshire pub. Called Jackpot Racing, its founders wanted athletes aiming to “compete rather than complete”.
Early success included a silver medal for Jonny McLean at the European Sprint Championships in Kitzbühel, and elite brothers Tom and David Bishop racked up podium places at the Lough Cutra, Blenheim and the Jenson Button Triathlon.
Colin Hill and Chris Brown represented Jackpot Racing at the Ironman 70.3 Worlds in Mont-Tremblant, Canada, just just one week after Mika Brown raced for Team GB at the World Sprint Championships in Edmonton.
