Cross Duathletes avoid Dracula for success in Transylvania...

The Romanian town of Târgu Mures in Transylvania was host to the second edition of the ETU Cross Duathlon European Championships over the weekend.

A 'Silver Fox' last year, Louise Fox was back alongside Flo Dannah in the GB Elite team, to see if she could add another medal to her collection. With interrupted training leading up to this race, she couldn't quite match those heights, but the Brit pairing finished close together in fifth and sixth position, as Spain's Margarita Fullana Riera defended her title.

The small GB Age Group team puched above their weight to collect 13 medals from the off-road format, to had to the huge haul from Kalkar, and the (road based) European Champs last week (Sprint | Standard).

The full list of medal winners is below, which includes Claire Hitchings who was the fastest female AG athlete across all categories.


1st – Margarita Fullana Riera (ESP) – 2:33:43
2nd – Kristina Lapinova (SVK) – 2:35:06
3rd – Yulia Sunkova (RUS) – 2:40:55
5th – Flo Dannah (GBR) – 2:44:37
6th – Louise Fox (GBR) – 2:46:02

1st – Xavier Jove Riart (ESP) – 2:08:00
2nd – Joan Freixa Marcelo (ESP) – 2:09:54
3rd – Ciprian Balanescu (ROU) – 2:10:06
