World Champion Brit dominates in Putrajaya

Perhaps as you might expect from a former Time Trial World Champion, Emma Pooley dominated today at Powerman Malaysia in Putrajaya, courtesy of a bike split that her competition could not come remotely close to.

Taking a one minute lead at T1 after the opening 10km run over Japan's Airi Sawada, Pooley then hit the gas on two wheels to record a 1:34:59 bike split which was more than 11 minutes faster than anyone else. Closing with a 39:40 second run (just 1:12 slower than her opener), Pooley completed a 'fastest in all disciplines' domination which ended up with a huge 16 minute victory margin. She'll have tougher battles ahead this season as she targets the Olympic Games Time Trial in Rio, but a nice way to open up her 2016 racing season. Pooley is next scheduled to race Challenge Fuerteventura on 23rd April.

Australia's Thomas Bruin took the men's title, the key to his success a final 10km run which let him pull clear of Chicano (PHP) and Powerman Zofingen Champion Le Bellec (FRA).
