GB’s Jacqui Slack takes fourth at ITU Cross Tri World Champs

Following an impressive ride on the 31km MTB leg, Great Britain’s Jacqueline Slack took fourth place at the 2015 ITU Cross Tri World Champs in Sardinia, Italy, on Saturday. Missing out on the podium by 2mins, the result was still two places higher than in 2014.


Taking to Twitter after the race, the Xterra champ said: “Gave it everything I had today, unfortunately not enough to take that dream world champs podium. But I’m very satisfied with my 4th place. Awesome to race in GB colours and even more special to have my closest friends and family out there on course to cheer me on. The support was out of this world couldn’t have done it without you all! Huge congrats to everyone that raced!”

Spain’s Ruben Ruzafa and Bermuda Flora Duffy (BER) were crowned the king and queen of the rough and tough after conquering one of the grittiest and grimiest races of the season. For Ruzafa it was his second consecutive title, while Duffy earned gold for the first time.
