Wearing the red colours of the Bahrain Endurance Team, he extended the gap from David Giardini and Pieter Heemeryck on the bike and won the pro men’s race after a strong run in a time of 04:03:09, stripping 10 minutes and 35 seconds off the course record.

Alistair said: “This is my first attempt at a middle distance race and there is a lot to learn. I chose Gloria Challenge Mogán Gran Canaria as my first middle-distance race because I really like what Challenge Family is about and considering we are coming into the summer race season the timing is perfect.”

It was a British win in the women’s pro race too, with Emma Pallant beating the current Kona world champion Daniela Ryf (SWI) and fellow Brit Lucy Charles.

 Ryf led the majority of the race after taking the lead on the bike, with Charles hot on her tail. But it was Pallant who valiantly fought her way up from third on the run, who crossed the line first.

Emma completed the course in a time of 04:35:15, knocking seven minutes and 15 seconds off last year’s women’s race – setting a new course record.
