Coventry Triathletes was renamed from the Sentridge Club and was originally formed by Tony Nutt (still an active member) and a colleague in November 1989.
The original club kit
The distinctive club kit modelled in the photo was taken from the Tour de France’s King of the Mountains jersey, with the colour of the spots being changed due to an existing club adopting the red spots.
