Mitch Robins and Jodi Heeney win the Maitland Mid Distance Triathlon – Full Results

Mitch Robins edged out Tim Reed and Adrian Cominotto in what was a close race until the run. Mitch set a blistering pace to run the 12kms in under 40mins at 3:18min/km. Jodi Heeney was over 7mins ahead of her nearest rival Estelle Von Abo. Also racing amongst the men was Chris Dimitrieff who rode and ran well.

The Maitland triathlon is a ‘mid distance’ triathlon including a 1.5km swim, 55km ride and 12km run.

Mitch Robins had his first win yesterday at the Maitland Triathlon and Multisport Festival against a hot field including Tim Reed, Adrian Cominotto, Chris Dimitrieff, Richard Munro, and more.

Mitch won in fine form and was very pleased to get a win over Tim Reed. “I had a great swim, coming out on the feet of Cominotto, and with Reed in tow we quickly set about riding away from the other guys. The pace was super fast and Adrian dropped back to the main group at about 10km while Reedy and I continued to ride hard at the front of the race. We could see the main bunch at each turn around and we seemed to be putting some time into them so we kept the heat on”.

With about 6km to go Mitch attacked hard up a climb of about 500m and managed to open up a gap on Reed. “I kept my foot down and by the time I got to transition the gap was at 1 minute. I started the run in front and still felt fantastic, and I found a rhythm very quickly as I continued to feel very comfortable and extend my lead on all the other guys. At the end of the 12km run I had a pretty comfortable lead, and was really happy with how I felt all day”.

Things are looking really good for Mitch in the lead up towards the Port Macquarie Half Ironman in 3 weeks time. Mitch was 2nd to Tim Berkel at the race last year and can’t wait to race him again in front of all his friends and family at home and go one better. Mitch’s next race is the Gunnedah ProTour event in 2 weeks time which should be a lot of fun and a good chance for another hit out before the Half Ironman.
