A busy weekend of racing included the first Age Group qualifying event of the year at the Big Cow Emberton Duathlon, taking place just one week prior to the British Duathlon Championships. In our preview we suggested keeping an eye on Catherine Pickthall, but with her not starting Eimear Mullan proved to be the class of the ladies field with a totally dominant win. The men's event was a much closer affair, with Ironman specialist Nick Saunders proving his class over a much shorter format to come out on top. Full results HERE.
