Ontario pros were able to compete once again last weekend at the Canadian Cross Training Club (C3) Old School Pro Sprint Triathlon in Caledon (750 m swim/ 20 km bike/ 5 km run). A sprint finish saw Jackson Laundry eke out a win over Taylor Reid, while Dominika Jamnicky ran away from the women’s field to take the women’s title.
In the women’s race Kira Gupta-Baltazar led the way out of the water and managed to stay in front for 16 km of the bike before being caught by Jamnicky and Elise Bolger. Jamnicky pulled clear on the run to take the win, with Gupta-Baltazar holding off Bolger for second.
Laundry sprints to the win
Jessey the Elf led the way out of the water with Tristan Jones on his feet, with Taylor Reid and Cody Beals 22 seconds behind and Laundry another 12 seconds back. Jessey the Elf was able to hang on to his lead through the bike, but the trio of Beals, Laundry and Reid were all close enough to pass him by 3 km into the 5 km run. Laundry and Reid traded the lead a number of times in the last 400 m sprint to the line, with last year’s Ironman 70.3 Mont-Tremblant champion taking the win. Reid finished with the same time, while Beals was 14 seconds behind in third.
