Challenge Gran Canaria Gallery: The Brits Excel

Chief Correspondent

In pictures – the British excel at Challenge Gran Canaria 2017

We are very fortunate here on Tri247 to be able to bring you some fantastic race images from a small group of very talented photographers. One of those is Lanzarote-based Brit, James Mitchell (www.jamesmitchell.eu).

James has provided his services to a number of familiar names and brands in the triathlon and wider sporting community, his images regularly appearing on magazine covers and on the adverts and branding of many high-profile brands. If you are looking for a talented snapper – especially one who knows Lanzarote and its surrounds like the back of his hand – get in touch with him!

James was at the Gloria Challenge Mogán Gran Canaria on Saturday, a race that drew more than its fair share of headlines thanks to Alistair Brownlee and Daniela Ryf – and even more when Brits Emma Pallant and Lucy Charles finished ahead of the four-time world champion. Full report HERE.

It was a good day generally for the British athletes. As well as the Pro wins, Ruth Purbrook and Reece Barclay were the overall Age-Group winners, with plenty more podium finishes too.

Check out this ‘Great British’ gallery from James – scroll through the images above.
