The Men’s Race

The men were first in the water at Pulse Port Beach, with 24 athletes lining up on the beach for the 750m swim.

Despite high winds, the sea was relatively calm for the U-shaped course. By the time the swimmers had reached the first buoy at 150m Alastair Rogers, was imposing himself on the race and had opened up a gap on the rest of the field.

The DCT winner extended his lead to 30secs by the time he entered T1.

Behind him, James Walton, Harry Speers and Jonathan Martin came out together with Aichlinn O’Reilly, Darren Dunne and Tom McEnery a further 25secs back.

Rogers Stays Clear 

On the bike, Rogers took the brave decision to push on alone despite gusty winds that favoured the draft legal packs. Under his own steam, he biked 30mins 26secs - the second quickest split of the day and completed the 20km course alone.

Only Aichlinn O’Reilly went quicker. His 30mins 11secs split saw him move from the second to the first chase pack and arrive in to T2 with Speers and Walton, after Jonathan Martin dropped back to a larger group about 30secs behind that included McEnery, Dunne, Ben Ryan and Walton.
