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.
Heather Jackson wins the ladies race whilst Paterson claims 3rd
Making headlines this weekend was Andy Potts at Ironman 70.3 Oceanside as the American claimed his 5th Californian title. No-one knows this course like Potts does.
Meanwhile it was Heather Jackson who took the ladies title but all eyes were on Lesley Paterson, who ran down most of the field in thrilling fashion to claim 3rd!
Also in action from a British perspective was Rachel Joyce, James Hadley and a certain Jenson Button… check out the story of this race here.
Lidbury looking for big win despite injury concerns
Racing in far warmer conditions than us sitting here in England are the athletes preparing to tackle California based race, Ironman 70.3 Oceanside. All eyes will be on what is the biggest race on the circuit this weekend in an event contested by the likes of Rachel Joyce, Emma-Kate Lidbury and XTERRA World Champion Lesley Paterson.
On the men’s side, our interests are represented by James Hadley and Robbie Wade.
Whilst Ironman racing is never plain sailing, matters have been complicated somewhat for Lidbury who has decided to race despite recently dislocating her shoulder. Can she pull of a big result against the odds? Check out the preview here…
Long-distance multi-sport to benefit from funding
British Triathlon has confirmed support for multisport athletes including ETU Powerman European Duathlon Champion, Lucy Gossage, ITU Cross Triathlon World Champion and Ironman 70.3 competitor Lesley Patterson, long distance duathlete Matt Moorehouse and the promising talent of Mark Threlfall.
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.
Two-time Xterra World Champion and 70.3 series competitor, Lesley Paterson, has signed a deal to wear On shoes throughout 2013 and into 2014.
Paterson joins a formidable looking list of triathlon competitors sold on the high-tech Swiss brand, and you will also see the Swiss International team, Caroline Steffen, David Dellows and fellow Brit Dan Halksworth competing in them.
Lesley Paterson was the pride of Scotland once again as she defended her XTERRA World Title last night in Maui, Hawaii. Paterson, who was bidding for double glory this year in the 70.3 Ironman series and XTERRA completed half the mission and was crowned the World Champion of off-road triathlon.
Well, after a flurry of massive Ironman races it’s no surprise that the series is taking a slight break before it all starts again for next year with Ironman Florida and Ironman Arizona. Instead the XTERRA takes centre stage in Hawaii as that particular world title is settled, Rev3 rolls into Florida for a middle-distance race and a couple of 70.3 WTC races are going ahead in Austin, Miami and Port Macquarie.
OK… so maybe it isn’t so quiet after all!
Tons of weekend action this weekend featuring the pro’s and top age groupers from the British Isles. Rachel Joyce and Jodie Swallow were winning in Kansas and Boise respectively, whilst the amazing exploits at Enduroman reached their thrilling conclusion.
