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…
Well, more of an extension on last months preview when I took a look at the pro start list for the men and the women. I picked Jodie Swallow as the big British hope here, who could come and replicate her 2010 win to take the title in 2012. I mused that she was flying somewhat under the radar given her year of injury problems and was ready to remind the rest of the world that a fit Swallow is probably the finest middle distance triathlete out there!
I also picked Paul Amey to be the best of British although further analysis of form and discussion with the athlete himself, has made me want to reconsider my pick to be Rich Allen. You’ll find no sitting on the fence here though so I’ll stick with Paul!
Here is a further preview rounding up my predictions of the British pro starters, age-groupers to look out for and the course and championships themselves.
The Irish Middle Distance Championship was settled at the weekend over at Groomsport, Northern Ireland and it was Rory Maguire and Jen Duffy who confounded those brave enough to make predictions to take away the titles.
Find out here how they did it!
Plenty of action both domestically and internationally this weekend – and one of the key players was the weather at almost every race. Writing the headlines this weekend was Bella Bayliss who produced a battling performance to take 2nd at Ironman Switzerland. Paul Ambrose was also in podium form taking 2nd.
We also witnessed the debut of the UK Iron-distance Xman24 – an overnight, cross country race across the South Downs. Insanely hard!
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.

It’s a big weekend on the WTC Ironman circuit this weekend – with the series rolling into Europe and one of the biggest US races in town. When you add to the mix Ironman Florida 70.3, Ironman Austria – and on the domestic scene the Marazion Middle – there’s lots of build up to cover.
