Aileen Reid claims silver in Hungary

Aileen Reid claims silver in Hungary

Planet X sponsored triathlete, Aileen Reid produced another superb performance on Sunday as she recorded her first podium finish of the season with a second place finish in the ITU World Cup event in Hungary, riding her Planet X Mondo to victory.

Competing in Tiszaujvaros, Reid finished runner-up behind American Katie Hursey who earned her second successive win in the World Cup series. The final involved 30 of the elite female 

triathletes; Hursey finished 27 seconds ahead of Reid with Croatian Sara Vilic a further six seconds back in third. Aileen admitted she even surprised herself with her brilliant display. “I’m delighted,” said Aileen afterwards. “I didn’t think I had it in me after yesterday’s race. My plan was to run easy in the heats just as long as I qualified and I’m glad it paid off today. I’m so pleased to be on the podium”

Reid’s silver medal will give her confidence going into the second half of the season with the ITU World Triathlon Series stopping off in Stockholm before the Grand Final in London from September 11th- 15th.
