Aileen Reid top 10 in Stockholm

Aileen Reid top 10 in Stockholm

Planet X Mondo rider Aileen Reid claimed a top 10 spot at the World Triathlon Series in Stockholm at the weekend after another quality all round performance.

Aileen's time of 1:57:44 was found her in 9th place and boosts her overall World Series ranking up to 11th with just the Grand Final in London left to go.

The opening 1500m swim around the Stockholm harbour broke up the field thanks the some choppy conditions and a fast set pace. Aileen was nestled in the leading group and had no problem holding her position during on the bike. Many of triathlons fastest runners missed the leaders out of the swim but with 15km remaining on the bike they had managed to bridge the gap back to the front.

New Zealander Hewitt and Great Britain’s Vanessa Raw made a break on over the final stage of the bike and went into the run with a narrow lead.

Gwen Jorgensen soon showed her class stretching her legs and running away to take the overall win. Reid was also going well and claimed her first World Series top 10 of the season thanks in part to a 33:48 10km run split.

Aileen now looks onwards to London in September, where she hopes to firmly secure a place in the overall top 10.
