It was a good day for France at Super League as Cassandre Beaugrand and Vincent Luis took the Triple Mix at first event in the three-race championship Super League Triathlon Series in Jersey. Both head into tomorrow's Enduro event (three classic sprint triathlon races in a row) with 25 points. Today's Triple Mix consisted of three events run in close order - the second and third races started 10 minutes after the first athlete crossed the line. Athletes who were more than 90 seconds behind were not allowed to continue.

Just as she did in taking WTS Hamburg earlier this year, Beagrand was unstoppable on the run, looking almost serene as she ran away from the rest of the women's field. The 21-year-old took all three races of the Triple Mix, winning the first by pulling away on the final run leg, the second thanks to a stellar swim and the fastest run out of the water to the line and the third by outrunning last year's Jersey champion, Katie Zaferes in the final leg of the race.

Henri Schoeman led the first leg of the day from start to finish and would overtake countryman Richard Murray during the final swim leg of the second race, coming across the line just ahead of Luis. In the third and final race, run as a pursuit, Luis quickly moved to the front and, once on the run, was unstoppable as he pulled away from Schoeman to take the final leg with ease.
