Podium for Lesley Paterson at Oceanside
The XTERRA Champion had the fastest run split and finished 3rd.
Lesley Paterson came off the bike with a 6+ minute deficit off the leader at the California 70.3 in Oceanside last Saturday. She ran her heart out, podiumed and finished 3rd. The XTERRA Champion had the fastest run split. "My On shoes were awesome and I am very happy that I realized the fastest run split at a 1.16", said Lesley after the race. Congratulations, Lesley, on a truly fantastic race! Frederik Van Lierde - winner of the International Abu Dhabi Triathlon - finished 8th. He started the race with a good swim. After a good transition it took him a couple of miles to get in the leading group. The pace on the bike was really high. Frederik started the half marathon with the later winner, but soon enough he felt he pace was too high for him and settled into his own rhythm. He fell back to a 13th place, but with only 4 km to go he caught 5 athletes and finished 8th. "It's obvious that a half Ironman turns out to be a short race for me and I need the miles", commented Frederik.
