Julie took control from the gun and never looked back. She lead the swim coming out about 3 mins up on the rest of the girls who pretty much swam all together. Out on to the bike she capitalized on her lead and started out on the run with a 7 min lead. In doing so she broke the course records for both the swim and the bike. Out on to the run Julie hung tough in the heat and and finished again in a course record. Catriona Morrison also of GBR came in second, with Sam Mcglone (2006 70.3 world champ) in third. And Julies partner in crime Abi Bayley had a stormer of a race coming in 4th, making it 3 brits in the top 4!
Needless to say Julie is ecstatic with her race! Thanks to everyone who has contributed to her success, and again a special thank you to Andy at Total Fitness Bath for lending Julie her bike.
Also Julie would like to congratulate both Becky Lavelle for a great win at the 70.3 in Wildflower, and also to Leanda Cave for her win at the inagural One-o-One race in Bradenton Flordia. Go girls!!
