ITU World Triathlon Leeds

June 13, 2017

Top class performances from both Kuota sponsored athletes this weekend in the Leeds round of the ITU World Triathlon series.  Tom Bishop finishing in 5th place, with Jess Learmonth finishing in 6th.

Tom had an excellent race, which saw him come out of the water in 19th and after a cracking ride on his Kuota Kougar, he went through the transition and on to the run in 6th place.

In the Womens event, Jess emerged from the water in 1st place and set off on her Kuota Kougar in the lead.  Due to a pre race team plan, Jess had to drop back to help support team mate Non Stanford.  Going into the run, Jess started to pull away in her least favourite part of the event and finished a very creditable 6th place.
