Desafio 2018 Triathlon and Trail run.

February 21

ThankYou James Mitchell for your support and lovely photos today,
Desafio 2018, La Graciosa.
I loved this race last year so I was really tempted to race here again, even though my life is not about me racing these days. My days are about making sure all my athletes have the training they need each day, but there is part of me that likes to race too.
I enjoyed the day today, I overcame my pre race nerves and had a great race, to win for the 2nd year in a row made me very very happy.
Well done Tessa Kortekaas on your 2nd place, and Lucy Biddlestone for fighting her way to the podium

I am so proud of Sergio Cuéllar Betancort finishing this year 20 minutes faster than last year! That is a great improvement and only shows the great work he has been doing.
Congratulations Brian on another impressive race today.

All the best to Sergio and Lucy who both race over the 2nd stage of this race tomorrow, 31km around the island of La Graciosa.

ThankYou Sandra, John and Eva Miguelez Bierge for your patience and support all day,

Congratulations Lucy Biddlestone winning the Desafio 2 day event for the 2nd time in a row. 
A great off road triathlon (1km swim, 20km mountain bike, 6km run) on Saturday battling away to get herself on the podium for 3rd female overall then backing it up today to win the female 31km trail run race in 2.19.33 , a 6 minute pb on last year, .
Congratulations Lucy, a great stepping stone into your main races of 2018.

And Congratulations Sergio Cuéllar Betancort doing his first Desafio 2 day event. Yesterday racing 17 minutes faster in the triathlon than last year then today running the 31km trail race in 2 hours 57 minutes. Congratulations Sergio, What an achievement. Be very proud. Keep up the great work as more excting challenges get closer.
