Weekend action

Another superb weekend for Team GB with Alistair Brownlee getting an untroubled by anyone, let alone Gomez, win at San Diego a day after Non Stanford produced the race of her life to take second in the women's race. And on Sunday Lucy Gossage topped the field at the ETU Powerman Long Distance Duathlon Championships. We'll have lots more details on the duathlon later today as soon as the team gets back from the apparently internet-free area, there's an official BTF release HERE and a round-up of the age group results HERE..

It's not often we get an Ironman 70.3 race without there being a Brit in the mix but, at least as far as the pro athlete field went, the Ironman 70.3 New Orleans was one of those rare occasions. The race was won by Andreas Raelert (GER) with a mere five second lead on Trevor Wurtele (CAN) while the women's title went to Sheena Braulick in an all-USA top three. Full results on the WTC site HERE.

It was definitely a busy weekend on the domestic scene and even the weather stayed largely bright and pleasant - although there was some very frosty grass down on the Sussex Downs first thing Sunday morning at the Bluebell Run. Not sure where the bluebells went though, the organisers were reporting that for the first time in a decade the woods were pretty much a bluebell-free zone.

The Ashbourne Duathlon on Saturday was won by (and, yes, we know we got this wrong in the early edition...) Paddy Allaway (BRAT Club) and Abbey Norman (Mercia CC), full results are on the StuWeb site HERE.

The Talkin Tarn Duathlon event, the triathlon comes later in the year when things (might) have warmed up a bit, saw victories for Jon Fletcher (Arragons Tri Club) and Karen Bridge (Carlisle Tri Club). Full results are available HERE.

A victim of the Spring weather, the 1485 No Frills Duathlon had its rescheduled run today with James Turner and Helen Russel taking home the trophies. Full results are HERE.

Alexander Royffe (Newport Phoenix) and Carys Griffiths (Pencoed Tri Club) were the winners at the Vale of Glamorgan Duathlon, Alexander's victory was by a mere two seconds over James Hockin (Celtic Tri). Full results are HERE.

The Burnham on Sea Swim Academy held its early-season Super Sprint Triathlon. Wins here went to Billy Osmond and Joanne Filer (PACTRI), full results are available HERE. There's also an online article on Arthur Gilbert, reputedly the world's oldest active triathlete, who completed the event HERE.

Just Racing had two days of events at Duston with their TriStar races on the Saturday, results on the StuWeb site HERE, followed by the adult version on Sunday. George Goodwin (Zoot/Rugby Tri) and Stacey Penn (Northants Tri) were the winners, you can get the rest of the results HERE.

Carl Shaw (Huub TFN RT) took the win at Sunday's Pendle Triathlon with Seonaid Thompson the fastest women, full results are HERE.

We aren't sure how many years Black Country Triathletes have been putting on the Wombourne Sprint Triathlon in one guise or another but it's one of those events that goes way back into the dawn of the sport in this country. This year's Spring race was won by Mark Fullwood and Anna Bartlett (SYTri), full results are on the StuWeb site HERE.

Another well-established series of races are the Borders Sports and Leisure Trust and their Summer series kicked off with the Turriff Sprint. Peter Fenwick and Gemma Passmore, both members of the Shetland Triathlon Club, took home the honours, full results are HERE.

The first of the West Midlands Series of races, the David Lloyd Lincoln Triathlon, was won by Matthew Nelson and Hannah Shooter, full results are on OneStepBeyond's website HERE.

Provisional (no splits yet) results from the three duathlons at Stockton are now in, you can check these out on the TriHard website and we'll add copies when the splits appear. Winners in the standard distance event were Douglas Roberts (redvenom) and Anna Turvey.

Also added in this morning are results from the Ribby Hall Duathlon (HERE), the Kingfisher Aquathlon (HERE) and all the Long Distance results from Horst - the sprint results are not all on the ITU site yet.
