The flying Scotsman, Fraser Cartmell, returned to the course he knows so well after 5 previous outings at Wimbleball, and raced his way into a solid 3rd place on his 6th outing here.
Cartmell is of course a previous Ironman 70.3 UK champion and had started the race as one of the favourites, but was edged out by the fleet-footed running of Ritchie Nicholls, and the famous running strength of Olympian Tim Don over the muddy trails.
I caught up with Fraser for a post-race interview for his very first appearance in Beyond Going Long.
Eimear Mullan successfully defended her Ironman 70.3 UK title in Wimbleball yesterday, although it was a close battle all day with Holly Lawrence. In the end, Mullan used her famous run-kick to secure the hard-fought victory on the final lap of the run.
After her win, regular contributor James Mitchell caught up with Eimear, who hinted she may well build on this victory and take that form into Ironman Austria in 2 weeks time.
Huge name added to startlist on 8th September
A huge name from the world of triathlon is about to be announced as racing the country’s biggest off-road triathlon event in Cranleigh, Surrey on the 8th September – but before we can make the announcement the organisers are asking if anyone can guess who it is?
The mystery athlete is a 2x world champion and multiple race winner who has a high profile within the sport and will no doubt start the off-road triathlon race, set within the stunning grounds of the Vachery Estate, as the race favourite.
Can you guess who it is?
Ritchie Nicholls breaks course record in his first 70.3 race at today’s IRONMAN 70.3 UK
Ritchie Nicholls (GBR) and Eimear Mullan (IRE), celebrated a double Team TBB victory at today’s IRONMAN 70.3 UK, in a tightly contested race amidst conditions that tested even the fittest of athletes on this notoriously tough course.
The latest Tean TBB protege, Scotland’s Ritchie Nicholls has taken what looks to be the biggest win of his career at Ironman 70.3 UK. Nicholls beat several pre-race favourites, including Olympian Tim Don and multiple champion Fraser Cartmell to take the victory in a time of 4:15:04 – holding off the strong run challenge of the ever charging Tim Don.
These results are obviously very early so full details are yet to emerge, including the all-important women’s results, but the men’s podium looks like this:
1) Nicholls 4.15.04
2) Don 4.20.07
3) Cartmell 4.20.30
Polly Linksill secured the British Middle Distance Triathlon Championship at the Beaver Triathlon this past weekend, edging out Ironman 70.3 PRO Georgie Rutherford.
