Andrew Greenleaf and Stephanie Knott set the pace in Wimbleball

While today's IRONMAN 70.3 UK Exmoor may not have included a Pro race, the iconic and hugely challenging Wimbleball course still attracted a large and talented Age-Group field to contend for both overall and category honours.

Here's a roundup of the top-five postions overall, along with a summary of all of the category champions from one of the toughest IRONMAN 70.3 races on the schedule, anywhere in the world.

Seeing Andy Greenleaf on top of the pile is no surprise. The Team Freespeed Skechers Performance athlete is a serious talent, one we recognised with an ERDINGER Athlete of the Month award after a stunning race at IRONMAN Wales last year. Second-placed Clive Kennedy-Burn is a seriously strong cyclist, a talent he used to good effect while winning overall the British Duathlon Championships in April, while third-placed Michael Birchmore won the British Middle Distance Championships at the Grafman earlier this season. 

Fastest lady overall Stephanie Knott is both a Kona qualifier and a European Duathlon Champion. Second placed Claire Wood has been a category winner at The Vitruvian, while Melissa King has a string of strong results to her name, especially around the South West region.

Pro race or not, class athletes - congratulations all.
