Moore and Peasgood too good for rivals in Milan
Alison Peasgood and Hannah Moore struck gold at the World Paratriathlon Series in Milan.
Peasgood, in her first-ever outing alongside paratriathlon guide, Nikki Bartlett, beat former PTVI world champion Susanna Rodriguez by over a minute in one of her quickest ever races.
Moore dominated the women’s PTS4, continuing her red-hot form from 2018 when the 22-year old was crowned world champion - she finished a whopping six minutes ahead of her nearest rival, American Kelly Elmlinger.
Elsewhere, George Peasgood took silver in the men’s PTS5 race while Dave Ellis and guide Mark Buckingham finished second in the men’s PTVI - both athletes suffering mechanical problems.
Paralympic champion Andy Lewis also won silver in the men’s PTS2 race, finishing just behind France’s Jules Ribstein.
“After a hard block of winter training, it’s good to get the season started and really see where we’re at,” said British Triathlon paratriathlon head coach Jonathan Riall.
“Overall, it’s been a positive day for the team, with some athletes having a fantastic start to 2019. Some experienced a bit of bad luck today, which can’t be helped, and some things didn’t quite go to plan for others.
“But we’ll take the positives from today and make sure that we’re building towards a set of strong performances come Yokohama next month.”
