Apologies for missing out the weekend roundup last week but three days of pre-dawn starts took their toll and the most pressing task was to get the results online come Tuesday morning. A less demanding workload this weekend so here goes with the roundup...

Racing started early in the sense that the ITU World Cup race in Chengdu was probably all done and dusted by the time you looked out of the window at a wet and windy Saturday morning. Russell White (IRL) was the best placed of the athletes on our radar with 25th and Cameron Milne was 38th while long-term GB resident Lawrence Fanous (JOR) was 43rd. Full results are HERE.

Some serious bike action at Ironman 70.3 Mallorca gave the win to Andreas Dreitz (GER) ahead of some more fancied names while Lisa Hütthaler (AUT) repeated her winning performace from 2013 and crushed the rest of the women's field. Liz Blatchford took third place while Tamsin Lewis took a fall on the bike resulting in a DNF and a brief spell in hospital. Daniel Halksworth was eighth and you can check out John's race report HERE.

With gusting wind and the occasional shower the racing at Dorney Lake, exposed at the best of times, would have been interesting for anyone sporting deep sections... The traditional venue-opener is the All Nations Triathlon organised by The Fix Events and this year's race was won by Conor Richardson (IRL) and Gabriela Rendekova (GBR), full results are HERE.

Quick off the mark with results was the Microgaming Sprint Triathlon on the Isle of Man. Andrew Nash and Rebecca Storrie claimed the wins and there's a full set of results up HERE.

The Powerman UK races in Sherborne have results up HERE and the long course was won by Chris Goodfellow and Catherine Faux.

You can play 'spot the elite' with a couple of sets of results from Sunday's racing. First up is the ECF Monster Mojo where Sam (still no sign of retirement) Gardner placed second behind Benvenuto Baldelli (Cambridge Triathlon Club) with Frankie Sanjana the first woman in fifth overall, full results HERE. The shorter Mojito race went to Simon Hoppe (TPactrac) and Catherine Benger, results HERE.

Switching over to the Waveney Spring Sprint we find Joe Skipper (Tri-Anglia) leading the pack home with Catherine Lee (Human Performance Unit) the fastest woman. Full results are HERE.

Hannah Kitchen and David Knight (both Hillingdon Triathletes), both retained their 2013 wins at the Hatch End-Harrow Triathlon, though this year for the first time in the history of the event, the race was won overall by a woman, as Hannah finished eight seconds faster than David. #Chicked! Full results are linked HERE. Hannah finished fourth last year in the Elite Under-23 World Aquathlon Championships in London and under the guidance of Richard Stannard this winter has made huge improvements this year and will surely be aiming for a place on the GB Under-23 Elite teams in Edmonton later this season.

The Cleveland Sprint has a full set of results in HERE giving the wins to Daniel Jenkin (Durham Tri) and Hollie Elliott.

News from the Grantham Sprint that the top three overall were Jordan Skelly in 53:16, Daz Sharp in 54:02 and Dean Kirkham at 54:29. For the women it was Ruth Wilson in 1:03:24, Amy Grocock in 1:04:26 and Chloe Scotchbrook in 1:04:33. Full results are waiting on the inclusion of the swim splits and will follow shortly.

Results in from the Tewkesbury Sprint show Eliot Taylor and Marianne Scott as the winners but we are waiting for an Excel set to process for the archive.
