IRONMAN Mont-Tremblant

Monday 19 Aug 2019 [Triathlon News]

For much of the race it was the Lionel Sanders (CAN) and Cody Beal (CAN) show. The pair of Canucks went off the front early on the bike and rode together for the first 120 km's. Playing to his strength, Sanders hit the gas hard and carried a 5:00 advantage on Beals heading out on the run. Initially, Beals was unable to make any significant gains in reducing the gap to Sanders and it wasn't until 25 km's when Sanders' advantage took a serous hit. more
