In what was already a busy weekend of racing, there was more middle distance European action in Italy at Challenge Rimini. The Italian venue is a popular training destination and has also hosted the ITU Duathlon World Championships in past years.

From a British perspective, Hannah Drewett was the first female out of the water, while Elliot Smales had a great debut Pro race to finish fourth overall.

You can see them – and plenty more – in the image gallery above.
