Just two weeks after a victory at Challenge St. Andrews, Carfrae’s Roth performance included the second fastest ever Roth run split of 2:53:27, and the 4th fastest overall time on Roth records.
Just 4 weeks off of a stunning 2nd place performance at IRONMAN Texas, SpeedTeam/TwentyFour pro Julia Gajer ran away with the victory at Challenge Kraichgau.
Kraichgau featured a thrilling duel on the run course, with Gajer and eventual 2nd place finisher Gina Crawford running together for 14K, neither slowing the pace. In the final few meters, Gajer pushed the pace to escape Crawford’s sights and clinch her 3rd podium of 2014. “It was for me probably the hardest race I’ve ever contested in the Kraichgau,” said the winner minutes after her victory.

Proving to be the superstar that she is, SpeedTeam pro Kate Bevilaqua conquered a loaded field to take the win at Ironman 70.3 Busselton. With two second place finishes in Busso, Kate arrived to the start line thirsty for the win - and took it in spectacular fashion.
Bevilaqua exited the water in second position, and rode solo for most of the day through Busselton’s Tuart Forest. A small group of women caught her with 15K to go on the bike, sending her into T2 alongside two prime competitors. Her rocket ship 1:25:13 run sealed her victory by nearly two minutes.
“I threw caution to the wind and went for it at the beginning of the run, hoping my fitness would allow me to get across the finish line first,” said Bevilaqua. “It did - and I'm over the moon to come away with the top podium position!"

Straight off a 2013 of high-profile wins at Challenge Taiwan and Challenge Wanaka, SpeedTeam/TwentyFour pro Dylan McNeice continues to make a name for himself. This past weekend, McNeice, back in Taiwan to defend his 2013 title, claimed the win over a fast field determined to catch the race favorite. Taiwan completed a drive for two back-to-back wins for McNeice, who also took the repeat win at Challenge Wanaka earlier this year.
