Phil Holland completed a remarkable clean sweep in the USN Votwo Silverstone Duathlon Series after claiming victory in the fourth and final race on Tuesday night.

Corley Cycles competitor Holland won the race in an impressive 50:01, making it four wins out of four in the series.

His winning time featured a 10:09 opening run, 28:19 bike and 11:03 second run over distances of two miles, 10 miles and two miles. The victory completed a superb run of wins for Holland, which began on 19 May when he claimed first place in the opening race of the Silverstone Series.

In second place on Tuesday was Jason Moore, who clocked 51:25, with Daniel Pebody third in 52:24.

Manuela Maxwell won the women's race, coming home in 55:51, which was enough for ninth place overall. Steven Hacking, of DB Max Tri, was the first veteran over the finishing line, coming home fifth overall in 54:32. There were 145 finishers.

Event organiser Ben Mason said: “It was a superb race. We got 177 entries in total, which was fantastic – a real bumper turnout.

“Phil did very well. To win all four is a great achievement. I am not that surprised, as to win one you have to be pretty good. I was also very pleased for Daniel Pebody, who came third. It was good to see him get a podium place.

“It was an amazing field, and I would say there was a 50-50 split of newcomers and regulars.

“The series has been as successful as we wanted it to be. I've enjoyed being a part of it and it has been a pleasure to organise.”

The next race in the USN Votwo calendar is the Padstow Triathlon, which takes place on 11 September. For further information, check out www.votwo.co.uk
