Well, we've now seen Ternzo Bozzone's race plans for the fall - at least three races in a row around Kona! The Kiwi took his third race in a row - after winning Ironman New Zealand in record-setting time three weekends ago he's followed that up with impressive 70.3 wins in Bariloche and Campeche. In the women's race Heather Wurtele made it two in a row in Campeche.

Wurtele wins again

Wurtele trailed super-swimmer Lauren Brandon (USA) out of the water by almost four minutes, but managed to overhaul the American towards the end of the bike to lead into the run. The Canadian never looked back and easily cruised to yet another 70.3 title. Brandon hung tough for the runner-up spot, while Angela Naeth made it two Canadians on the podium in taking third. Linsey Corbin had the day's second-fastest run behind Wurtele to run herself to fourth.

Terenzo on top

Bozzone is certainly in top form at present, managing to post among the fastest splits in all three disciplines to take his third win in three weeks. Bozzone trailed American Rudolphe Von Berg out of the water by 20 seconds, but was in front by the end of the bike and hung tough on the run to take the win. Austria's Michael Weiss trailed out of the water by almost three minutes, but used the day's fastest bike ride to put himself in contention and would eventually finish second. Swim leader Von Berg rounded out the podium.
