Britain’s Tim Don beat a very strong men’s field at the Ironman 70.3 North American Pro Championship in St. George, Utah last Saturday (2 May), making this his third win in three races so far in 2015.


Men’s race

Todd Skipworth (AUS) and Jon Bird (CAN) led out of the water after recording 23:15min swim times. A group of 11 men that contained the top contenders were less than minute off the pace and included Ben Collins (USA), Brent McMahon (CAN), Andreas Raelert (GER), Tim Don (GBR) and Andrew Yoder (USA).

Once on the bike Collins, McMahon, Don and Yoder worked together to put distance on the field. Thanks to the fastest bike split of the day, McMahon was off the bike first and was accompanied by Collins as the lead pair entered T2 within seconds of each other.
