In Pictures: Challenge Peguera-Mallorca 2019

Last Saturday’s Challenge Peguera-Mallorca (www.challenge-mallorca.com) has been a very popular race in the Challenge Family calendar since its debut in 2014. That year it also hosted the ETU Middle Distance Triathlon European Championships.

The event this year did feature some tragic news, with the death of British Age-Group athlete Carl Cavanagh, who died after suffering a cardiac arrest during the swim section of the race. Always horrible news to hear from any event, our thoughts are with Carl’s family and friends at a very difficult time. [More details HERE].

Here’s a look back at last weekend’s event, which was the comeback after four months out of racing for Great Britain’s Fenella Langridge. She was going really well… until she crashed and ended up in hospital again, as you can see below.

Once again we benefit from the photography skills of José Luis Hourcade (www.joseluishourcade.com), who continues his European tour of triathlon, providing us with an insight into many of these major events.

Check out some great images from the race below

No podium today for Dapena Gonzalez, who would finish fourth – a bike crash leaving him with a mechanical and 70km of riding in one gear! (55-15, if you are asking…)
