blueseventy athletes go faster
blueseventy athletes were swimming, biking and running faster than the rest this past weekend. Here's a quick run down of results:
Non Stanford won the women's event at ITU WTS Madrid. Non and Gwen Jorgensen ran up through the field - Non taking her first WTS win and Jorgensen getting 4th.
At Rev3 Quassy Eric Limkemann and Jennifer Spieldenner were both first out of the water in their PZ3tx suits. We had Kevin Collington, Limkemann, Maik Twelsiek and Tim Don finish in the top 10 for men.
Greg Bennett (and his wife Laura) won titles at 70.3 Raleigh
Clayton Fettell went wire to wire to win Cairns 5150. Great race for the big Aussie, had a good run after his trademark leading swim and hammering bike.
In Honu Pete Jacobs was racing. He visited Epic Camp, which we proudly sponsor, and did a swim masterclass while he was there. Pete lead out of the water in his PZ3tx with blueseventy athletes Luke Bell, Paul Matthews and Damon Barnett. Pete had some cramps in his lower back that nagged at him on the bike and he faded back from the front. Paul, Damon and Luke raced well and finished 2nd, 3rd, 4th. Lots of blueseventy athletes at the front all day!
Melissa Hauschildt won ITU long course World Champs held in Belfort France. The swim was cancelled due to cold temperatures. Melissa topped the podium with Rachel McBride grabbing 3rd and Dirk Bockel grabbing 3rd on the men's side.
Finally, we were at the British Age Group Sprint Champs and Outlaw Middle Distance event in Nottingham at the weekend and Canadian pro, Luke Dragsta, was first out of the water in a helix. He's got an 8hr 13min iron distance result to his name, so we were more than happy to help him out with a suit on race morning!
