Podium images and results roundup from Dorset

The UK & Ireland IRONMAN Tour came to a close on Sunday in Dorset – the sixth race of the season after Staffordshire, Cork, Bolton, Dun Laoghaire and Tenby – at IRONMAN 70.3 Weymouth.

The Pro races (report HERE) saw India Lee defend her title from 2018, while George Goodwin continued his impressive progression with a classy victory to add to his win earlier in the season in Staffordshire.

IRONMAN 70.3 Weymouth 2019: Fastest Age-Group athletes

FEMALE

1st – Victoria Kenny (GBR) – 4:31:00 – AG 18-24
2nd – Kate MacTear (GBR) – 4:34:37 – AG 25-29
3rd – Danielle Shrosbree (GBR) – 4:35:00 – AG 25-29
4th – Olivia Matthews (GBR) – 4:37:45 – AG 25-29
5th – Anna Bergsten (SWE) – 4:38:51 – AG 25-29

It’s been a great year for Victoria Kenny. You may remember that I spoke to Victoria back in January this year, shortly after she had won the Triathlon England National Duathlon Championships at Ashridge House (interview HERE). Victoria was also the first Age-Group athlete overall at IRONMAN 70.3 Staffordshire (HERE), plus Age-Group winner at 70.3 Barcelona, 70.3 Santa Cruz and Challenge Prague.

With no background in the sport, Kenny has shown a great ability on the bike, her success in Weymouth and through the season in large part due to her speed on two wheels. Her 2:32:16 bike split matches up well with the leading Pro athletes, but was also more than eight minutes quicker than any of the another Age-Group women. Even with a half distance swim, she still lost four minutes to the leaders however, and so progress on that front will be a focus – but if she can progress there, a move towards Pro status in 2021 is quite realistic.

MALE

1st – Will Munday (GBR) – 4:00:08 – AG 18-24
2nd – Dan Blake (GBR) – 4:04:39 – AG 35-39
3rd – Hugh Brashaw (GBR) – 4:04:39 – AG 18-24
4th – Vanrisch McLean (GBR) – 4:05:39 – AG 35-39
5th – James Gilfillan (GBR) – 4:05:44 – AG 40-44

It’s been a fine end to 2019 for the Weymouth Age-Group champion, Will Munday. Winner of the British Middle Distance Championship at Aberfeldy in August, he was then the fastest British Age-Grouper overall at the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Nice.
