2XU's Massimo Cigana claims third Laguna Phuket Triathlon (LPT) title
Huge congratulations to 2XU Ambassador Massimo Cigana, who successfully defended his Laguna Phuket Triathlon (LPT) title yesterday, marking an unprecedented third victory for the Italian Triathlete in the competition.
Cigana smashed the field with an impressive bike and a solid swim-run - he's the first athlete to win the race 3 times; placing him ahead of two time winners Craig Alexander and Mike Pigg.
Speaking to the Phuket Gazette, a very composed Cigana expressed satisfaction with his race.
"This was my kind of weather – perfect for me. The course is beautiful, but quite difficult and I really had to push going over last part of the run. My bike split time was good and my ankle injury didn't flare up, so I'm very happy to have won my third title," he said.
Cigana will spend a week recovering in Phuket before taking on the longer Ironman 70.3 event next week.
