Lucy Gossage takes silver at Challenge Walchsee 2015

The suspense didn’t let up in the women’s race at Challenge Walchsee in Austria last weekend, with Britain’s Catherine Jameson and Lucy Gossage right up there at the front of the pack throughout the middle-distance race.


Jameson led out of the swim, and over the first 60km of the bike she held a 3:30mins gap over her pursuers Gossage, Daniela Sämmler (GER), defending champ Yvonne van Vlerken (NED) and Simone Braendli (SUI). 

Sämmler subsequently fell back, but the remaining trio of Gossage, Van Vlerken and Braendli kept calm and by T2 they had closed the gap. Within seconds of each other the top four women headed out onto the run.
