Weekend Race Report!

If you saw our preview from Thursday, you'll know that this weekend was a busy one for our sponsored riders. Everyone did really well, so here are the results!

Lauren Booth was track racing in the Southern Area qualifiers for the National Youth Omnium on Saturday. She got 6th place on the day, putting her into 6th place in the series too.

On Sunday, Elliot Smales competed in the Windsor Triathlon, his first draft-legal Olympic distance race, coming in with a time of 1:53. He was 40 seconds off the leaders at T1 but pulled it back with great bike and run legs to finish 9th overall in the elite competition and 2nd place in the Junion category! Read a full report from Elliot himself here.

Sticking with Triathlon, the weekend of course also saw this year's Ironman 70.3 UK championships at Wimbleball. Both Ritchie Nicholls and Eimear Mullan were there defending their titles. Ritchie crossed the line in 3rd place behind Will Clarke and Harry Springall. Eimar made it a hat-trick, winning her 3rd Championship in a row with a time of 04:52:16, more than 10 minutes faster than her nearest female competition.

The Viner-sponsored Pro-Continental road race team Christina Watches had a superb weekend in Quebec finishing off the Tour de Beauce. On Friday, Stefan Schumacher won the 20km ITT in Saint-Georges, a solid 10 seconds in front of second place.

Asbjorn Kragh Andersen, who has had a fantastic week of form, came in 6th. Together with a 4th place finish on Saturday and 10th on Sunday, Kragh took 4th in the GC, 2nd in the points competition and was the 2nd fastest young rider!

As expected, Saturday's brutal hill finish in the Tour of Korea totally blew the peloton apart. Nonetheless, Fortunato Baliani of Christina Watches crossed the line in 5th after the humongous 960m climb.

Kris King isn't racing, but he's running and riding just as hard on his circumnavigation of Great Britain in aid of the Huntington's Disease Association. This weekend saw Kris undertake two more century bike rides on the Southern coast, during which he clocked up a staggering 16,000ft of climbing. Unsurprisingly, Kris says that Sunday was his hardest day yet. Yesterday Kris completed his penultimate marathon of the challenge, passing through Land's End and heading back up North towards home.
