Great Britain's Michelle Parsons - now well into 'veteran' status at 45 years of age - proved she still has the competitive instinct and talent by taking victory yesterday at Powerman Alabama, the first race of the year in the International Powerman Duathlon Series.

The 10k / 60k / 10k course also served as the USA Triathlon Long Distance National Duathlon Championship. Michelle is no stranger to the podium in Powerman events, the tough distances and non-drafting formats playing to her strengths, and she used her bike speed in Alabama to overcome a one minute deficit at T1 to catch and pass Deanna Newman (USA). The three minutes gained on the bike proved enough, and despite losing a little time on the final 10k run, it was another victory to add to a very impressive race CV.

Ryan Giuliano (USA) dominated the men's race in the absence of 2010 winner and Powerman king Joerie Vansteelant, setting the fastest splits on the first run and bike leg, to cruise home to a comfortable win.
