Louise 'Silver' Fox takes second at inaugural European Cross Duathlon Championships

Despite a busy season which has seen her travel extensively across Europe following the XTERRA Triathlon Tour, Great Britain's Louise Fox's season isn't over yet. On Saturday she travelled to Castro Urdiales in Northern Spain for the first edition of the ETU Cross Duathlon European Championships, alongside a small GB Age-Group contingent.

A winner of the English Championship over this format last year, took the silver medal in Spain behind home athlete Margarita Fullana Riera, who won the Bronze medal at the 2000 (Sydney) Olympics in the Mountain Bike Cross Country. Fox recently finished 15th at the ITU Cross Triathlon World Champs in Sardegna.

As well as Fox's Elite medal, the GB Age-Group earned one Gold, one Silver and two bronze medals.

GOLD: Kirsty Prior: F40-44

BRONZE: Kirsty Vogan: F25-29, Richard Hardy: M60-64
