Craig Alexander wins and Tim Berkel 3rd at Ironman 70.3 Triathlon in Boise, Idaho USA

Craig Alexander and USA’s Ben Hoffman were separated by only 10 seconds at the end of the Boise Ironman 70.3 with Alexander taking the win. Alexander exited the water 1min 47sec ahead of Hoffman but the American out performed Alexander on both the bike and run to almost take the race. Tim Berkel put in yet another great run to take 3rd place with Matty White 4th in a reversal of their last finish the previous week at the Mooseman 70.3.

In the women’s race Kate Major finished 5th. Last weekend Kate was 2nd female at the Mooseman 70.3 where Matty and Tim Berkel also raced.

The final men’s finishing order was AUS/USA/AUS/AUS/NZL/USA/AUS… Australian’s have been achieving some great results in the 2010 USA triathlon 70.3 season.
