Team Livesey lead the way in Alcudia after opening swim

The Husband and wife duo of Mark and Caroline Livesey hold a narrow lead after the first discipline at the second edition of Long Course Weekend Mallorca. Day One of the ‘iron-distance over three days’ format comprises the 3.8km swim in Alcudia Bay, followed by a 172km bike leg on Sunday and the Marathon on Monday.

The 2017 winners – Lucy Gossage and Tom Vickery – are second and third respectively after the 3.8km swim.

I’m particularly pleased to see Caroline back in racing action. As you may remember, Caroline suffered a road rage attack in May 2017 which resulted in a broken sacrum, something she has been dealing with the results of ever since and struggling to try and get back to full health and fitness, something we spoke to her about in January this year. Fingers crossed that the next couple of days go well for you.

Husband Mark – like Lucy Gossage – is using the Long Course event as preparation for the Patagonman Xtreme Triathlon taking place in Chile on 8th December.
