Bozzone and Seymour lead the way in Los Cabos

Terenzo Bozzone appears to be on another fall tear while Jeanni Seymour ran her way past Angela Naeth to take Ironman 70.3 Los Cabos by just 13 seconds.

Last year Terenzo Bozzone tore up the triathlon world over the last few weeks of the year, racing to a course record 7:51 at the pancake-flat Ironman Western Australia, then following that up later with a big win at the third leg of the Triple Crown - Ironman 70.3 Bahrain.

The Kiwi appears to be setting up for another such tear, taking Ironman 70.3 Los Cabos in brilliant fashion with the day's fastest bike and run splits after coming out of the water with the lead group to easily take the day. Matt Chrabot stayed close for much of the bike, but was simply outgunned by Bozzone over the closing stages of the ride and was no match (no one was) on the run.

Seymour runs through for the win

After Lauren Brandon did her usual "lead the way out of the water" trick and held on to her lead for the initial stages of the ride, it was super-cyclist Rachel McBride who led the way into T2, enjoying a 10-second lead on Naeth, 1:16 on Brandon, 1:31 in front of Lindsey Jerdonek, 1:44 on Carrie Lester and a whopping 4:23 on Seymour. 

Naeth would quickly move to the front, but by the 10 km point of the race, Seymour had moved to within 1:19, and then, with 3.5 km to go, was only eight seconds behind. The pass was inevitable at that point and Seymour cruised by for a 13-second win over Naeth, with Carrie Lester rounding out the podium.
