Fernandes and Belaubre win in Madrid

By World Triathlon Admin | 19 Sep, 2004

Madrid, Spain: 19 Sept, 2004: The Spanish Triathlon Federation and the City of Madrid combined forces to produce one of the finest World Cup events ever staged on the ITU World Cup Circuit.
Air temperature during the night dropped to 14oC, causing the water temperature in Lake Casa de Campa to drop below the magic 20oC mark, so the women were allowed to wear wetsuits for the 2 lap, 1.5km swim. 
Pip Taylor of Australia, Leanda Cave of Britain and Pilar Hidalgo of Spain moved to the front after the start signal and stayed there through the first turn buoy, when Sylvia Gemignani of Italy moved to the front and led through to the swim to bike transition.
Annabel Luxford of Australia and the defending Madrid World Cup Champion Vanessa Fernandes from Portugal followed Gemignani from the transition.  Next out was Taylor, Luxford, and British team-mates Anneliese Heard and Jessica Harrison and Pip Taylor (AUS).
