It’s been a busy few days in Târgu Mures, Romania, with the Transilvania European Cross Festival hosting not one, but two ETU European Championship events for the off-road racers. Following the Duathlon on Thursday and Friday, the Cross Duathlon took place on Saturday and Sunday.

As always, British athletes were there in force – and here is our roundup of the medals.

William Hammerton completed a double in the 70-74 category, while Claire Hitchings extended her run of success with Gold in F45-49, defending the title she won last year in Switzerland.

In total, seven medals including those two Gold’s were collected, to add to the ten from the Cross Duathlon event.
