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

Although would have been more exciting if we could have run side by side again A huge thanks goes to the doctor in the race who stopped his own and checked me over. The ambulance team who made me feel comfortable and at ease And of course @chmallorca team for helping in any way they can More information to come soon… but for now I let you all know I'm OK 😊 Finally I need to count myself lucky.
