Madrid-based Ramón Ejeda and Ana Burgos have won today the XIV edition of the City of Valladolid Triathlon by beating the rest of their opponents after the swimming (750 meters), cycling (20 kilometers) and running (5 kilometers) segments.
The Spanish international, one of the candidates to represent Spain at the 2012 London Olympics, he commanded the race at all times, although he was unable to break away from his immediate pursuers since a privileged group of six was formed after the 750-meter swim in the Pisuerga River.
The triathlete, from Diablillos de Rivas, was the one who set the pace from start to finish, which, at the finish line, only Antón Ruanova, from Arcade Inforhouse, and Daniel Rodríguez, from CTOA, were able to follow.
However, in the final meters Ejeda pressed to avoid last minute surprises and stop the timer at 56 minutes and 24 seconds. Ruanova crossed the finish line seven seconds later and Daniel Rodríguez nineteen.
The female category was not so tight, since Ana Burgos immediately let go of the group and worked a distance that she knew how to manage on the bicycle and in the running race.
The 44-year-old triathlete gave no choice to her pursuers and led the solo event to seal a record at the finish line of 1 hour, four minutes and 16 seconds.
After her, the Segovian Helena Herrero, from Bricoblock-Esproten Tritoledo, landed at the finish line, just under two minutes before the final winner, followed by the Segovian Sara Regidor, from Tratlón LaGranja.com, who invested 1 hour, 7 minutes and 36 seconds to complete the course. EFE.
