ByEmma Porter |

Elizabeth Carr got her Triathlon season off to a flying start in Troutbeck over the weekend with her first international win in convincing fashion.

Carr was second out of the water behind Japan’s Minori Ikeno. The 750m swim consisted of a deep water start, with water temperatures of 22.3°C making for a non-wetsuit swim. 

A strong bike saw Carr put some distance between her and the closest chasers over the three lap course. The bike course consisted of three 6.6km laps over a hilly and technical course containing a maximum gradient of 16%. Carr completed the bike section of the race over 90 seconds quicker than her nearest rivals.  

Heading out onto the run course with a gap, Carr continued her form posting the fastest run split of the day to seal her first victory at Continental Cup level. The two lap run course consisted of 2.5km laps on an also hilly course, with gradients as high as 19%. 

Marit Van Den Berg of the Netherlands crossed the line in second place, over two minutes behind Carr, while Antoanela Manac of Romania completed the podium.

Carr now travels to Cuba for the 2024 Americas Triathlon Cup La Habana on the 25th of February, where she will be joined by James Edgar who will get his 2024 season underway.
