Ritchie Nicholls crowned 2010 GE Strathclyde ITU Triathlon European Cup Champion

Thursday, June 10, 2010
Corley Cycles-Body Limits Triathlon Trade Team member Ritchie Nicholls was crowned the 2010 GE Strathclyde Park ITU Triathlon European Cup Champion with a time of 01.50.34.

Ritchie Nicholls came out of the swim trailing behind the first pack and continued to chase the leaders throughout the bike. It was the run where he really pushed for the podium position. Nicholls was delighted with his achievement: “I’m really happy about it, I’m not normally a good swimmer but made up for it in the run, I slowed a little near to the end but I managed to hold onto the lead. It’s great to get the experience on this course, I’ve raced here a few times and never raced well so it’s good to put that right today.”

Other Fusion sponsored athlete Adam Bowden came home in 01:51:34 and took fifth position, “I had a great start in the water but my transition onto the bike wasn’t great. I kept at it but the real difference came in the run and where I really got stuck in.”

The event, which is the first of the five race British Triathlon Super Series, also held ITU Triathlon European Cup status.
