UK based Irish Duathlete David Vaughan joined Brits Matt Moorhouse and Lee Piercy at the weekend to race in the European Powerman Duathlon Championships in Holland. All three recorded top-15 positions in one of the most hotly contested races of the weekend, and here David reports on some fast and furious racing - and he's keen to spread the word on these high quality, high profile European duathlon races.

Europe's best long distance duathletes met in Holland for the European Powerman Duathlon Championships at Horst aan de Maas on Sunday, which consisted of a 15k run, then a 60k bike followed by a gruelling 7.5k run.

Pro athlete Anthony Le Duey from France won the event for the second year in a row exhibiting a dominant display in one of the most competitive international fields assembled in the sport of long distance Duathlon for many years. The race also formed the Dutch and Luxembourg National Championships.

GB based athletes were very active at the front of the race with Matt Moorhouse finishing in seventh, and Lee Piercy and David Vaughan battling it out over the final run to finish 13th and 14th respectively in a field of over 400 athletes. You could be forgiven for thinking that the pace is more sedate in these long distance events but at the top of the field the athletes were clocking 31.30 for the first 10k of the very twisty first 15km run leg and averaging over 25mph on the 60km technical bike leg.

Any UK athlete wanting to learn more about the Powerman race series and entry into future events held around the globe should visit or contact Matt, Lee or David directly.
