Lucy Gossage ready for Cholmondeley

Formidable British Iron woman Lucy Gossage has confirmed that she’ll be joining the 1,400 triathletes on the start line at the beautiful Cholmondeley Castle leg of the Castle Triathlon Series on Sunday 28 June 2015.


Fresh from a spectacular win at Ironman 70.3 Staffordshire, Gossage will be back at her happy hunting ground in Cheshire to defend her course record in the Gauntlet event (1.9km swim/96km bike/21km run). Standing in the way of the cancer doctor-turned-pro-triathlete will be New Zealand’s Sam Warriner, the versatile veteran of countless ITU World Cup wins and a Commonwealth Games medalist, and the Scottish Middle-distance champ Nikki Bartlett.

Over in the men’s Gauntlet race, Matt Leeman will be on the start line alongside Darren Jenkins, a man who’s racing all five of the Series’ Gauntlet races in 2015 (not forgetting the small matter of racing the long-distance 226km Bastion at Hever Castle in July, of course!).
