Big Finishes at Challenge Roth, 70.3 Vineman

IRONMAN 70.3 Vineman

July 12, 2015

70.3 Vineman is famous for attracting the biggest names in triathlon to California's wine country, and the 25th edition of this famous event was no exception. Australia's Sam Appleton had the fastest bike and run splits and held off tri-veteran Craig Alexander for the win in the men's field. Hometown favorite Meredith Kessler won the women's race for the fourth time, beating out Canada's Magali Tisseyre and reigning world-champ Mirinda Carefrae.
