Great Britain's Jacqui Slack and Australia's Ben Allen, the fast couple of XTERRA racing won 'on-road' today at the Tagaman Triathlon in Saipan, each collecting a $2,200 share of the $15,200 prize purse for the 2k / 60k / 15k event.

In doing so, Jacqui retained the title she won last year, while Allen makes it three wins in as many weekends, following XTERRA Philippines and XTERRA Saipan. The Tagaman was the only on of the Pacific 'Grand Slam' Ben didn't win in 2012. If he can win XTERRA Guam next week, he'll manage, adding to his XTERRA triple last year.

Scotland's Rory Downie stuck with Allen through the swim and bike legs to take second, while former winner Sam Gardner took a strong third ahead of former ITU World Champion Olivier Marceau (SUI).
