Alistair Brownlee returned to racing at the weekend for IRONMAN 70.3 Marbella. Brownlee led out of the water with a 39-second lead, but what appeared to be a mechanical issue on the bike put him 7 minutes back, arriving at T2 10 minutes down. Not giving up, a 1:11:03 run split took him to a comfortable second place.
Jess Learmonth led out of the water at the Bermuda round of the World Triathlon Series. By the end of the 40km bike in tricky conditions, Learmonth had formed a trio with Katie Zaferes and Lottie Miller who had a gap of 2.30 minutes. On the last lap of the run, it was clear Zaferes would claim her victory, but Learmonth looked strong in second place. Her second place finish also placed her second in the series rankings after her podium at the previous WTS round.View Post
