Tim Reed appears to be on track to hit top form as he looks to defend his Ironman 70.3 world title next month after a dominating performance on the bike at Ironman 70.3 Philippines that put him well ahead of the rest of the competition and allowed him to cruise to the win. Italy's Mauricio Mendez swam with Reed and ran faster, but was well back on the bike and would finish second, while Ryan Fisher was passed by the Italian on the run but hung tough for the final spot on the podium.

Amelia Watkinson was kept a bit more honest through the run as she had some company in the form of Kerry Morris, but the Aussie would eventually pull clear on the run to take the women's title. Jaqueline Thistleton ran her way to second, while Morris hung on for third.
