Sunday’s Challenge Salou (www.challengesalou.com) triathlon took place on the Costa Duarada in North East Spain.

The race (we have a full report HERE) saw impressive wins for Cameron Wurf (AUS) and Judith Corachan Vacquera (ESP), plus podium finishes for the British duo of Laura Siddall (2nd) and George Goodwin (3rd).

The event features a closed road bike course and several side events including a shorter distance triathlon, aquathlon, open water swim, kids run and more too, making it an ideal destination for the family.

José Luis Hourcade (www.joseluishourcade.com) was once again on hand at the race to capture some great images for us.
