Jan Frodeno continued his string of half-distance wins (and pre-Austria tune-ups) with a speedy run to take his "hometown" race at Ironman 70.3 Barcelona. World duathlon champ Emma Pallant also had a great run to take the women's title.

Frodeno tune-up

Since he spends part of the year living in Girona, Spain, Frodeno considers the Barcelona event to be a "hometown" tune-up for his big summer events, which, in this case, includes a world-best Ironman attempt at Ironman Austria. Australian Nick Kastelein managed to stay close to the German two-time Kona and Olympic champ, but once on the run Frodeno pulled away to take the win thanks to a 1:11:58 split. Russian Ivan Tutukin rounded out the podium.

Pallant pulls away on the run

Emma Pallant (GBR) continued her impressive season that already includes wins at Challenge Gran Canaria and Ironman 70.3 Mallorca with another win in Barcelona. Countrywoman Natalie Seymour couldn't match Pallant's run pace, but managed a solid second, while Charlotte Morel (FRA) rounded out the podium.
