Coming back from injury and illness, both Diana and Trevor were vicious taking down their rivals in Vichy! Diana won and Trevor was 2nd in Challenge Vichy which served at the ETU Long Distance Championships! Diana and Trevor have been on the mend from injury, and we are happy to say they are officially back on top with their 1st and 2nd respectively. All the teamTBB athletes showed they can bike and run with the best in the sport! Jo had a great race too coming in 6th and using this race as a long warm-up for Ironman Wales next weekend. Congrats to all the amazing teamTBB warriors on their amazing races!
Here is a quick note from Diana on her win:
I had a perfect day. For the 1st time I showed that I can swim in a big race and came out with Anne as 3rd woman. I overtook the lead after 15kms and from that moment on I didn't give it away. My dream was to win the European Champs. And it became true! As a bonus I stayed under 9hrs and was 8th over all!
Jo reported to us that he had a really bad swim, good bike, and very good run. He told our team he was satisfied wih his 6th place. He said:
"I'm more successful as a coach. This weekend my athletes won both European Champion titles! It's a great experience to see them!"
Finally Trevor reported in after his 2nd place finish to say:
Great weekend for me with the vice European Title Triathlon Long Distance but still a work in progress as my swim and bike are getting stronger and a run not in my abilities. Now time for recovery to build for my next Ironman.
Anne Basso our amazing Frenchwoman also started the race but was forced to retire with some issues. But she'll be back racing soon!
Congrats to Diana and Trevor on their podium finishes!
