Flora is still leading at mile 6 of the bike but Lesley Paterson now only 2 mins 10 secs back ; Flora may have lost time in a crash as she looks as if she went down. Third is Emma Garrard but almost 7 minutes back. Barring more mishaps it looks like a battle between Flora and Lesley, as expected. It’s a 30km bike so a long way to go !!
Terrible XTerra coverage from Stolz and Snyder, commentators, putting everyone to sleep and Stolz. No Twitter updates and results feed seemingly not working.
However, Flora shown on Live Stream early on bike with a good lead on 2nd to 5th women and riding just behind 2nd to 5th men ; long way to go !!
There is 25 minutes to go to the start of the XTerra World Championships as Flora Duffy defends her title and Neil de ste Croix and Laurie Orchard go in the age group world championships.
