This year’s Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship Series has so far produced some thrilling racing; from Javier Gomez’s first win in Sydney, Alistair Brownlee’s subsequent domination to Paula Findlay’s wins in Madrid and Kitzbühel. Chain Reaction Cycles are proud sponsors of the Series, and were thrilled to have been a part of the home event in London’s Hyde Park over the weekend.
Thousands of tri fans lined the London course to take in the festival atmosphere and check out the latest run, swim and bike technology in the Expo area. CRC were out in force with our new events trailer – with special offers, mechanic support, technical advice, competitions and much more.
Watch our highlights video of the weekend now, featuring CRC-sponsored triathlete Bryan Keane:
Alistair Brownlee took victory in a wet and windy third round of the Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship Series in Kitzbühel, Austria, over the weekend destroying the field for the second time in two weeks. Russian Alexander Brukhankov finished second ahead of Switzerland’s Sven Riederer in third.
Brownlee was the fastest man in the swim, equal fastest in the bike and smashed the field in the run, moving ahead of Javier Gomez and younger brother Jonathan in the overall rankings. After his win, the 23 year-old Brit said: “It wasn’t all difficult to be honest, I don’t think the conditions had that much of effect on me until the last couple of laps of the run.
I knew I had a decent lead and I knew I was racing next weekend (at the 2011 European Championships) so I kind of didn’t push on too much and I think that kind of hurt, and I think maybe I should have pushed on, I might have stayed a bit warmer.”
Canadian Paula Findlay became the most successful woman in the history of the Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship Series with another barnstorming performance, winning her fifth race out of six, and three from three in 2011. Brit Helen Jenkins finished second ahead of American Sarah Groff.
After a tough swim Findlay was more than a minute down from the leaders and had to wait until the run to stamp her authority on proceedings, running away in the final 200 metres to take the win.
After the race, Findlay said: “I’m just thrilled again, that was a really hard race, I have so much respect for Helen [Jenkins], I really didn’t think I could stay with her, I was running at maximum the whole way.”
