Rivalry pushes Sheridan to the limit

Tommy Sheridan chats to Docker TV after his time trial win.

A budding time trial rivalry has seen Tommy Sheridan and Cam Sutcliffe continue to post another strong finish at today’s 2km time trial at Fremantle’s training facility at Cockburn ARC. 

The pair traded second and third places in Fremantle’s time trials during the 2017 pre-season, however, with defending champion Bradley Hill watching from the sidelines, Sheridan prevailed for the victory with Sutcliffe in second.

“Me and Cam have had some great battles,” Sheridan said. 

“I think he got me last year. I just got in today but he’ll probably get me next time I’m sure. There will be plenty of banter to follow now.”

After leading from the outset, Sheridan said he left something in the tank for when Sutcliffe closed the gap on the final bend. 

“I could feel him coming down so I thought I wouldn’t go for a final push until the last 200 metres, so he couldn’t get me,” Sheridan said.

“We’ve had some epic races so far, so let’s continue them.” 

Sheridan said he was delighted to see Freo’s younger players post some of their best times.

Ethan Hughes and Luke Ryan shared a dead heat for third while Griffin Logue and veteran Danyle Pearce tied for fifth. 

“Griffin Logue’s really fit at the moment,” Sheridan said.

“Luke Ryan flew home as well, Ethan Hughes has a sore wrist and he’s looking in great shape.

“It’s fantastic to see all of those younger boys coming back in great shape and ready for a big pre-season and a big 2018.” 

As the pain from the intense running set in, Sheridan cast his mind back to some of the running work he put in during the off-season. 

One of these sessions was a long-distance run along one of California’s most famous tourist attractions. 

“I actually pretended I was at Venice Beach in the second lap,” Sheridan said.

“There was a bit of a nice breeze down there. You just have to try and think of other things to try and get your mind off it.”
