Tuesday, June 12, 2012

Austria - Daniela Ryf of Switzerland won Sunday’s 5i50 triathlon in Klagenfurt, Austria, edging out Brit Liz Blatchford by less than a minute. Ryf, a 2008 Olympian, blitzed the bike split, turning in the fastest time of the day, 1:07 over 40 kilometers. 

Ryf came out of the water in eighth position, 1:05 behind race-leader Blatchford, but the 25-year-old made up ground quickly on her Felt DA bike. Ryf’s dominating ride put her ahead by 1:35 going into the 10km run, and she held her lead to the line, beating Blatchford by 46 seconds.
