Great to see the GB women starting off their year in fine form. Saturday had Leanda Cave kicking off her Commonwealth Games selection run with a clear win at the ITU's La Paz Pan American Cup race while Sunday saw Jodie Stimpson picking up a podium place in the New Plymouth Triathlon World Cup. Even more welcome was the return of Helen Jenkins with a fourth place finish in the same race. There's a summary of the races HERE.

The big guns were out at Ironman Melbourne with Dirk Bockel (LUX) just missing on the sub-8 club, Caroline Steffen did sneak in under the magic nine with and 8:57:57 though. British representation was headed by Daniel Halksworth in 11th, Harry Wiltshire 12th and Phil Graves 19th.

Saturday's racing in Clumber Park produced wins for Duncan Bullock and Pollyanne Linskill at the standard distance (results HERE) while Peter Ellis (RAF Triathlon) and Jess Learmonth (Planet X) topped out in the sprint (results HERE).

The Mumbles Duathlon also offered short and long races: Gareth Thomas (San Domenico) and Jess Parry Williams won the longer (results HERE) while Paul Benyon and Vicki Sivertsen (Malvern Triathlon Club) led the short (results HERE).

Results are in for the Bath Duathlon events but check their website as they seem to have been having some issues with regular updates, we'll load a copy once they finalise them.

No Fuss organised their traditional season opener with two days of the pool-based Wee Triathlon up in Fort William. Results are up for both Saturday and Sunday races.

Another traditional early season pool triathlon is the Dyfi Dash and individual wins at the 2014 edition went to Andy Nash and Elinor Thorogood, full results are HERE.

No revving motors at the Goodwood Circuit for the Portsmouth Triathletes Spring Duathlon but plenty of high performance racing nonetheless. Tom Vandenbussche (Beltherm Trisport Pharma) and Rachel Clay (Portsmouth Triathletes) won the long race while Patrick Harfield (Portsmouth Triathletes) and Sally Baldwin won the shorter distance. Results for all the races including the Tristar ones are on the same link HERE.

Dorney Lake saw another day of racing with the third of the F3 Maxifuel Winter Duathlon Series, all the results for the duathlon and run events are up on the StuWeb site HERE.

Someone changed the clocks a week early in Oxfordshire, the Spring Forward Duathlon results on StuWeb show wins for Alan Rutledge and Zoe Levin.

Lots of triathletes out in the early Spring sunshine at the Whole Foods Market Kingston Breakfast Run including a very sprightly looking Annie Emmerson who came in second in the 16.2 mile race just ahead of another Tri247 regular, Michelle Parsons. Full results for both distances are online HERE.

There are plenty more results yet to come in so keep checking back during the day as we will be adding them to the archive where we can.
