Not sure if any of you caught the action from Hawaii this past weekend but some big results were turned in from some big names. What you might not know is that the Top 3 men and Top 2 women from the 70.3 race this past weekend have all been sighted with Trigger Point gear!! Not too shabby!!
Craig Alexander led the men’s field with an impressive come from behind win. Out of the water, Chris Lieto led the field throughout the bike, giving himself a sweet 8 minute cushion coming out of T2, and held onto his lead for the first few miles of the run. Alexander, Luke Mckenzie and Tim Marr came out of T2 together in hot pursuit of Lieto. No one could match Alexander’s 1:17 run split though and he cruised to victory ahead of Lieto in 2nd and McKenzie in 3rd (who had the second fastest run split of the day in 1:26).
The women’s race was all domination from the start. Belinda Granger came out of the water in 2nd place but didn’t stay there for long. She hammered the bike course to roll into T2 well ahead of the next competitor and cruised through the run with little to no competition. Granger finished the day with a 4:33 and not too far behind her was defending champion Samantha McGlone in 4:38.
Another great race from the big Island and another great day for Trigger Point!!
