It was a busy weekend for Ironman 70.3!
Boise 70.3, Kansas 70.3 and Eagleman 70.3 had some exciting finishes and we had quite a few Trigger Point users in the top 10 in all 3 races!
Craig Alexander and Magali Tisseyre claimed big victories at the 2009 Ironman 70.3 Boise Triathlon, presented by Ford. Alexander, the current Ironman World Champion, claimed the title with an exciting sprint to the finish alongside second place finisher, Chris Lieto. The winning time of 3:51:46, was just two seconds ahead of Lieto, who finished with a time of 3:51:48. Tisseyre, with top placements at this year’s Ironman 70.3 Florida and Ochsner Ironman 70.3 New Orleans, came through the finish in first-place with a time of 4:12:29. Both Alexander and Lieto are Trigger Point users and 2nd place finisher Linsey Corbin also likes to get her roll on!! Corbin is having a solid season so far, keep up with Linsey at http://www.linseycorbin.com.
Luke Bell and Chrissy Wellington posted great times yesterday in Lawrence. The top 10 was full of Trigger Point users including husband and wife duo Brandon and Amy Marsh from Austin, TX! Luke Bell had a dominating peformance and finished with a solid 1:13 run split for a finishing time of 3:49:35 with Timothy O’Donnell crossing the line in second almost a minute back. Even with a flat tire that had to be changed Chrissy Wellington had the fastest bike split of the day and finished the race almost 5 minutes ahead of 2nd place finisher Pip Taylor.
Perfect weather in Cambridge paved the way for a fantastic day of racing at Eagleman 70.3 this past weekend. After riding away from the rest of the men’s field, defending Foster Grant Ironman 70.3 world champion Terenzo Bozzone found himself holding on as Richie Cunningham made a huge charge over the closing miles of the run to win today’s prestigious Eagleman Ironman 70.3 by just 16 seconds. Bozzone finished in 3:51:11 with Cunningham at 3:51:27 and Michael Lovato finished third in 3:56:50. In the women’s race, Natascha Badmann led off the bike, but couldn’t hold off Mirinda Carfrae, who ran to the women’s title. Carfrae came out of the water almost 4 minutes ahead of Badmann, lost her lead on the bike and then caught back up and finished with a solid 1:19 half-marathon split to take the win in 4:13:27. Desiree Ficker from Austin, TX finished third with a time of 4:24:49. Ficker and Lovato are happy and healthy Trigger Point users!
Congrats to everyone who raced this past weekend and keep on rolling!!
