By April 20, 2015Triathlon

Leanda Cave recently joined the Swiftwick athlete team and what a way to kick off the partnership than watching her win the Women’s Cannes Triathlon in her Swiftwicks!

Leanda Cave started her day with a solid swim that give her an approximate 15 second advantage going into T1. During the challenging 80 km bike course Cave extended that advantage to 3.5 minutes by the time she reached the bike-run transition.

After that Cave held that advantage and came across the finish first in 4:18:42 and thus with a nice early season win to her name. Belgian Athlete Alexandra Tondeur finished second and Vanessa Raw third. Defending champion Charlotte Morel from France had to settle for fourth place.

“What a great race! It was well organized and the location was beautiful. The bike course was one of the hardest I have ever done and I am so thrilled to have pulled off a win since I have done 100% of my training on the flat roads of Miami. This gives me a lot of confidence for my next race – Ironman Texas,” said Leanda Cave to Slowtwitch.

We are both proud and excited to be a part of this journey with her!
