A combination of injury and illness have conspired to rob the world of what would have been an epic battle in Roth next month, as world champion Leanda Cave (thigh knacker) and Rachel Joyce (yucky virus) have withdrawn with a month to go till the big day.
The world of triathlon had been looking forward to this duel in Germany but that will have to wait, possibly all the way till Kona 2013, before we get a chance to see who would come out on top this year.
A tough day for the Brits racing
In its first outing as a 70.3 race, Brent McMahon and Meredith Kessler would battle in Utah to take the Ironman 70.3 North-American Championships and with it a share of the $75,000 and the large 1,500 KPR on offer.
The title and prize money had attracted an extremely strong field, that also included British names in the PRO race such as the reigning Ironman World Champion Leanda Cave, Emma-Kate Lidbury, Lesley Paterson, Joel Jameson and Paul Amey. As things developed, the Brits would find it hard to make an impact against the motivated field of North Americans competing for the title.
Monster-biker Andrew Starykowicz and Helle Frederiksen would take the titles ahead of some more fancied athletes at the third Ironman 70.3 San Juan.
This is a race that featured world champion Leanda Cave and many other talented triathletes who had been drawn to this race by its fast growing reputation on the circuit. Check out the Ironman 70.3 San Juan results here.
A big weekend of iron-distance racing beckons with the debut of a new P-2000 race in the form of Ironman Los Cabos. We also have a an all-star field competing at Ironman 70.3 San Juan this weekend – all this action ahead of next weekends marquee Ironman race in Melbourne!
Los Cabos has put together a strong field via its P-2000 status and $75,000 prize pot with Yvette Grice and Paul Amey in the mix. Meanwhile over in San Juan one of my ‘dream battles’ becomes a reality with world champion Leanda Cave in action alongside Jodie Swallow and several other huge names.
Check out the weekend preview here!
It was a huge weekend of racing, with Abu Dhabi Triathlon headlining and a strong support act in the form of Ironman New Zealand and Escape from Alcatraz.

Also benefiting the scheme are Ironman World Champion Leanda Cave, Challenge Roth winner Rachel Joyce and top British Ironman racer Tom Lowe, who will work under the titles of Long Distance ambassadors. Check out the full story below.
’100% curable, not dangerous and not life-threatening’
Yesterday we carried the news that the reigning Ironman and Ironman 70.3 world champion, Leanda Cave, had received a diagnosis for skin cancer. What followed was worldwide support for the champion in the media and on social networks.
Thankfully, Leanda was able to update us later on that the cancer was a non-life threatening form of the disease called Basel Cell Carcinoma, which is treatable and a direct result of exposure to the sun. I caught up with Leanda to offer my support and also find out a bit more about the condition and to help her spread the word that early detection and prevention is key.
Reigning Ironman World Champion, Leanda Cave has been reportedly diagnosed with skin cancer. Thankfully, she has recently updated us with the news that she has Basel Cell Carcinoma, which is a very treatable form of the condition and not considered immediately life-threatening.
Cave posted on her Facebook page:
I was just diagnosed with a skin cancer this morning. Make sure you use sun screen and wear a hat people. Take sun protection seriously.
