Canada's Maxime Leboeuf made it three in a row at the ITU S3 Winter Triathlon World Cup in Quebec this weekend, blasting away from the field in the first 5 km snowshoe leg (he's a former world snowshoe champ, so no surprises there) and staying away for the rest of the race - an 11 km skate and 9.5 cross-country ski. Lefoeuf led an all-Canadian podium as Olivier Babineau just got to the line ahead of Christpher Busset.

In the women's race Sweden's Lovisa Modig was untouchable once she got skating and skiing, taking the women's title over Kristina Lapinova from Slovakia. Canada's Evelyne Blouin rounded out the podium.

This was the fifth edition of the event held in Quebec City. The race is part of the Pentathlon des Neiges festival which will see over 5,500 participants compete in either solo or relay races made up of biking, running, cross-country skiing, skating and snowshoeing.
