Â Lance Armstrong has won a much anticipated test against Chris Leito. Lance rode 2:01:46 exactly 3mins ahead of Leito. However Leito left everything out on the bike course and struggled in the run finishing with a 1:33 half marathon. Greg Bennett did everything he could to make up the 7min bike defictÂ and posted a 1:18:21Â run to finish just under 3min behind Armstrong.Â
It was a tough day at the office and the run times were slow across the board. Bennett, possibly a little wiser than the rest made sure that he had enough to give him a chance on the run.
It was a day of wise old men pushing the field.
In the women’s race Linsey Corbin won ahead of Julia Grant with Beth Walsh 3rd. Corbin came out of the water just behind Grant but then rode strongly and ran hard to post win. Walsh ran 2min faster the Corbin but her bike time was to far behind to give her a chance of running Corbin down
