Phil Mace and Maddie Durkin were today crowned as AON National Sprint Triathlon Champions but were made to work hard for their wins by Nick Pilgrim and Louise Wells respectively.
After what appeared to be a long 750 meter swim, Nick Pilgrim exited the water in 13 mins flat with an as expected healthy lead over defending champion Alan Potts and pre race favorite Phil Mace. Nick was able to consolidate that lead going into the 5km run and was well positioned to take his first senior title. Phil, however, had other ideas and by the end of the first of two laps on the run he had reduced the gap to about 250 meters over Nick and was holding a much fastest cadence than the youngster. He then caught Nick on the far turnaround and held on for a tough but well earned win in 1 hr 06 mins 46 secs. Nick, who has suffered from some breathing problems on the run this year and was well below his usual run time,crossed the line visibly disappointed in 2nd in 1hr 07 19. With an 18 minute swim defending champion Alan Potts simply had too much to do and despite posting the 3rd fastest bike and 2nd fastest run he was never in contention for the overall title but took the final podium place in 1 hr 9 min catching Geoff Smith on the run, with Geoff finishing just 30 secs behind in 1 hr 9 min 30 secs.
In the women’s race pre race favorite Maddie Durkin, chasing her first national title, appeared to be having things her own way as she established a solid lead over her likely nearest challengers Amber Mehta (1 1/2 minutes back )and Louise Wells ( 2 minutes back). Louise clawed back some 30 secs on the bike, overtaking Amber in the process, but going into T2 Maddie still had 1 1/2 minutes on Louise. By the run turn into the 2nd lap Louise had clearly made big inroads into Maddie’s lead, with what was an excellent run, but although she knocked another minute off Maddie’s lead she fell 28 seconds short and Maddie, who has had an outstandingseason, took the win in 1hr 15 min 08 secs, good enough for 8th overall, with Louise posting a time of 1 hr 15 minutes 35 secs ( 10th overall). Amber Mehta lost more time on the run but still held on for 3rd in 1 hr 20 min 13 secs.
In age group racing the following won their age group :
20 -29 Will Green 9th overall, 30-39 Alan Potts, 40-49 Phil Mace, 50-59 Geoff Smith 4th overall, 60 + Steve Petty 30th overall
