ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - The off-road Red Bull BVI X-Tri took place in Smuggler’s Cove and Belmont on Saturday March 21, 2015 and saw Carolina Pettigrew, after last competing in and winning this event 8 years ago, roaring back to win the ladies division and breaking the course record set by Kay Reddy last year.

Pettigrew completed the course in 54 minutes and 58 seconds, taking almost three and a half minutes off Reddy’s time. A sweet victory for Carolina, as Kay broke the record she had set in 2006. Kay was second, and Sarah Carroll, third.

In the 4 Four Islands Cup, a new series comprising the seven main events of the 2015 BVI Triathlon year, absences and opting to compete in the Aquathon instead of the Triathlon shook up the standings.

In the second running of the Aquathon, Tash Ruscheinski was victorious for the second year, but Adrian Copaceanou was a scant one minute behind after eroding Tash’s swim time on the run. Jenny McIvor was third.

The event’s Aquathon (swim/run) comprised a three-lap, 900-metre swim and two-lap, four-mile run.

Kay Reddy knocked Tash Ruscheinski off the top spot and earned herself valuable points from Tash and Jenny McIvor. She leads by five points.

Antony Spencer and Richard Morgan continue their battle for men's supremacy but Antony’s win at the Red Bull BVI X-Tri has helped him gain an eight-point lead over Richard.

Russell Crumpler, who didn’t compete in this event, has been knocked from third place by Gary Salter.
