Collington and Seymour too hot to handle in Mexico

Tuesday 16 May 2017
Race winner Kevin Collington (USA) patiently waited for the run to let the dynamics of the race settle down before making his move towards the front. In typical Andrew Starykowicz (USA) fashion, he hammered the bike for a race-best time of 1:57:23 which resulted in Collington facing a manageable +1:47 deficit at the start of the run. It didn't take long for Collington to assert his authority on the race, making the pass on a fading Starykowicz before the first three km's of the run were completed. Collington would have to fend off a late charge being mounted from behind by Tyler Butterfield (BER) to claimed the win with a 3:42:09 clocking. 

Jeanni Seymour (ZAF) notched her second win of the season but putting in a solid performance in all three disciplines in Mexico. Seymour exited the water with a large chase group two minutes back of the swim leaders and dismounted her bike in sole possession of second place and just under two minutes back of Lauren Brandon (USA) who had lead from the start of the race. Seymour wasted little time and grabbed the lead in the opening km's of the run and quickly put the race to bed and would eventually win the race by a winning margin of +4:56 on her closet rival.

Matthew, Jackson win at 70.3 Chattanooga

Matthew, Jackson win at 70.3 Chattanooga

Tuesday 23 May 2017 [Triathlon News]

Thunderstorms threatened in Chattanooga Sunday, but the weather held to allow the athletes to hit the course unencumbered. Newbie Antoine Jolicoeur Desroches (CAN) took the race to his competitors early with a big swim gap and turned it into a huge lead off of the bike with a solo effort off the front. It was all for naught though as Matt Russell was able to pull that gap back in dramatic fashion with just two miles to go. Adam Otstot crossed second and Antoine held on for third. more

Tuesday 23 May 2017 [Triathlon News]

Nils Frommhold and Laura Philipp crossed the finish line with huge smiles, despite the poor weather at IRONMAN 70.3 St. Poelten. Frommhold was the first of three German men on the pro podium, and Philipp dominated the race with a 10-minute lead. In the men’s race, things unfolded as expected. Andreas Boecherer, Frommhold and Maurice Clavel were among the fastest guys in the water and started battling out each other early on the bike. The three athletes, who all live in the same area in the South more

Tuesday 23 May 2017 [Triathlon News]

It wasn’t really a question for the crowd at the IRONMAN 70.3 Barcelona whether Jan Frodeno, the two-time IRONMAN world champ and 2008 Olympic champion would take the win. But this was not an easy win to take for Frodeno, because the race was tough—thanks to his training buddy Nick Kastelein (AUS), who pushed really hard in each discipline, and Bertrand Billard from France who hammered early on the bike. more

Monday 22 May 2017 [Triathlon News]

IRONMAN Lanzarote is always a race of suffering. Three factors made the pro field go hard at the 26th edition of the race. On the one hand, the sun brought with it extremely tough conditions for all of the 1600 athletes. On the other hand, Bart Aernouts (BEL) in the men’s competition and Lucy Charles (GBR) in women’s pushed the top pros to their limits. more

Monday 22 May 2017 [Triathlon News]

With last Sunday’s win at Ironman 70.3 Barcelona, Jan Frodeno has turned a corner in his training calendar to defend his Ironman World Championship title for a second time. He now has only half a year left until that second Saturday in October. It has been four years since Frodeno entered the realm of Ironman and three years since he claimed the distinction of being the first man to have won an Olympic gold medal and world championships in Ironman 70.3 and Ironman. He then went on to win in Kona more
