Liz Blatchford wins Challenge Forster in Australia

9. November 2014 — Triathlon Team

Liz Blatchford of the Uplace-BMC Pro Triathlon Team was in flying shape at the Forster Challenge last weekend where she crossed the line in first place.

She had a 1’20” advantage over Lisa Marangon after the swim, by far the closest anyone got to Liz all day. Despite difficult windy conditions she steadily increased her lead to over 4 minutes on the bike, followed by the fastest run split of the day. The result was an impressive time of 04:15:02, eleven minutes faster than second placed Lisa Marangon.

After the race, Liz was clearly satisfied: "I had a great day out in Forster today. I wasn't sure what I would have in the legs 4 weeks post Kona, but they felt good and strong.
I led the swim by just over a minute and continued to build my lead on the bike. There was a strong headwind for the last 25km of the bike so that hurt a bit. I came off the bike with around 4 minutes to Lisa Marangon in second.
The run had ups and downs but I drew on the adrenaline of leading and managed to continue to grow my lead. I eventually took the win fairly comfortable-!! The course was stunning and I really enjoyed my whole race."


Her next race is Ironman Busselton in 4 weeks.
