Pro Triathlete Pip Taylor finishes 2nd in San Fransisco

Escape f

Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon, San Francisco: Australia 's Pip Taylor continues her exciting return to top form (after last years long self imposed lay off) by coming home second in the notorious Escape from the Rock Triathlon. Now in its 27th year, the Escape From Alcatraz Triathlon is renowned for its punishing course and conditions and this year was no different with icy winds and heavy fog. The Escape triathlon features a 1.5 mile swim through frigid waters from Alcatraz Island to the shore at Marina Green, Fort Mason, a gruelling 18-mile bike race, and a demanding 8-mile run through the rugged trails of Golden Gate Recreation Area. Pip raced consistently at or near the front all day only to be finally pipped by Britain's 2002 ITU World Champion Leandra Cave.

Pip is really happy that her race form is developing so well and is currently preparing for the Eagleman Ironman 70.3, to be held at Great Marsh Park, Cambridge, Maryland next weekend, Sunday, June 10. The tough Eagleman involves a 1.2 mile swim in a rectangular loop in the brackish Choptank River followed by a tough 56 mile bike ride mostly through the scenic, windy terrain of the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. It finishes with a flat out and back 13.1 mile loop on mostly rural, unshaded roads. Pip's stint in the USA c ulminates in the New York Triathlon July 22nd and she will be racing in the London Triathlon, August 5th.
