Tim Don masters Ironman 70.3 Monterrey
He told us he wants to do a competitive 70.3 season until mid-July before the focus swings to Kona, and Britain’s Tim Don sure has started well with victory at Ironman 70.3 Monterrey in Mexico over the weekend.
Don trailed Germany’s Faris Al-Sultan out of the water by nearly a minute, along with contenders including Christian Kemp (AUS), Richie Cunningham (AUS) and Drew Scott (USA), son of Kona’s most successful athlete ever, Dave Scott.
Throughout much of the bike, Kemp, Collington and Don traded places out front while a chase group of 10 hovered a minute and a half back. As the bike neared completion, Don led into transition, but the first 10 were all within a minute.
