Whether you were in racing action yourself or putting in some Easter weekend training, the chances are – in the UK at least – you probably had some great weather to do it in. I was certainly out on the bike for four consecutive days, that’s for sure!

Having previewed the racing action last week, let’s roundup how it all went…



A relatively quiet weekend on the international front, with the Cannes International Triathlon arguably taking the headlines on the French Riviera. We’ve already got a separate report up on that one (HERE), where Cameron Wurf (AUS) and Camilla Pedersen (DEN) topped the podium, with Great Britain’s Tim Don taking second place. Good to see him back with a strong result after a frustrating mechanical-impacted DNF at IRONMAN South Africa.

From one multiple British World Champion to another – and this time it was another win for the current XTERRA and ITU Cross Triathlon champ, Lesley Paterson, at XTERRA Greece. There a cracking video recap of the Vouliagmeni race I’ve posted up HERE. Kudos to XTERRA and the race organisers for turning that around so quickly. The men’s race was a battle between to French athletes called Arthur… with Arthur Serrieres finally getting the better of Arthur Forissier.

The Bridgetown CAMTRI Sprint Triathlon American Cup in Barbados saw Ben Kanute (USA) continue to show his versatility, consistency and willingness to race any distance and any format, by taking the win over the draft-legal sprint distance format. Whether it’s Super League, ITU, Mixed Relay or IRONMAN 70.3, Kanute always puts in a strong performance.

Matthew Wright who we mentioned in the preview – who has spent plenty of time in the UK – got to sleep in his own bed the race was so local, and put together a good performance to finish fifth.

The race saw a Team USA double as Megan Foley – another athlete who has race in Super League Triathlon – took the win with the fastest run of the day. That was her first ITU victory – full results HERE.



Up in Scotland the Stirling Duathlon once again hosted the Scottish National Duathlon Championships – and as with Cannes and Greece, we’ve already got a separate report up on that one HERE. Ewan Brown and Alison McKenzie took the honours there, with the event also hosting the Scottish Student Duathlon Championships over the Sprint Distance. The winners of that were Cameron Main (Moray Firth Triathlon Club) and Eilidh Thomson (Edinburgh University Triathlon Club). Full results HERE.

While Lesley Paterson was winning XTERRA Greece, the TrailX Easter Duathlon saw the current ITU Cross Triathlon World Silver medallist, Nicole Walters, also taking victory ahead of next week’s championship race in Pontevedra, Spain. Not only did Nicole win the Duathlon on Saturday, but on Sunday she raced (and won) the women’s Elite division at the SouthernXC MTB Series.

The men’s duathlon saw Jon Pybus prevent a husband and wife double, by pushing Doug Hall into second place. Full results HERE. Oh, and as with XTERRA Greece, the off-road crew are quick to turn around an impressive video!
