IRONMAN 70.3 Les Sables d’Olonne
Frederik van Lierde appears to be on track with his training heading into IRONMAN Nice in two weeks. The 2013 world champion and five-time IRONMAN France winner was untouchable at the inaugural event holding off a challenge by France’s Denis Chevrot.
Great Britain’s Francesca Sanjana was an unknown heading into the race, however she won’t be able to rely on that advantage in the future. The Brit had to overcome a slow swim throughout the bike and run to take her first IROMAN 70.3 victory of her career.
