Our ambassador Ivan Rana delivered a great race. He ended the cycling sector in 5th place but still gave all he had during the run and surpassed 2 people in the process. His brilliant performance led him to be placed in a well-deserved 2nd place (8:30:45).

But there is still more joy to share from the Sands Beach Active Family. Bart Aernouts, our Ambassador uPlace-Pro Triathlon Team BMC team, was fighting for third place, and although for a moment it seemed as though Eneko Llanos would land in third place, Bart finally overtook him and came in third (8:35:59).

In addition, Victor Del Corral’s performance was admirable as he fought to position himself in the Top10 and finally managed to occupy the 9th place in the overall standings.

For the females Jodie Swallow (9:26:56) was the winner of the race, followed by Lucy Gossage (9:31:20) and Susie Cheetham (9:33:02).

It was a good way to start our season.
