Lucy Gossage, Tom Vickery win LCW Mallorca. Again.

Favourites retain their titles over three days in Alcudia, Mallorca

As highlighted earlier today, the absence of Day Two leader, Caroline Livesey, from today’s Marathon on the third and final day of racing at Long Course Weekend Mallorca indicated that everything was pointing towards repeat winners. That proved to be one of the easier predictions to make, with both Lucy Gossage and Tom Vickery also winning the Marathon event overall, to finish with a comfortable winning margin in the overall standings.

Still on the return to fitness, Caroline did run the Half Marathon today – “Just took it steady and pelvis was pain free which is the main thing!” – and so she can be very content with her LCW experience, despite not being able to take on the full distance on the final day.

After a disappointing ride yesterday, Caroline’s husband Mark bounced back with a strong 2:56:54 marathon which brought him right back up the standings, just missing the podium by 31 seconds.

Third place in the Long Course Weekend women’s standings went to super-veteran, Michelle Parsons, who remains just as tough as she has for the last 20+ years having recently won the Hispaman Xtreme Triathlon at 52 years young.
