Macca Wins Baja 70.3

Abnormal for the typically hot and clear weather of Baja California Mexico, the race kicked off in cool dark skies with Australia’s Craig Walton taking a quick and immediate lead as usual in the swim in the bay of Ensenada.

The athletes and the weather warmed up quickly as both the sun and Aussie Chris McCormack applied the heat. Always the favorite when he toes the line, Macca was fresh off his victory at the Ironman 70.3 Hawaii just last weekend in Honu Hawaii only 8 days ago.

“This was the first time in my career I have ever done back-to-back Half Ironman’s and it was a good test for me”, stated McCormack. “I felt pretty flat in both the swim and bike but felt really good on the run. It’s always a challenge to catch someone as great as Craig Walton and I’m happy with the win.”

With a blazing Half Marathon run time of just 1:12, Macca was able to pass the always front running Walton about two thirds of the way into the run. Macca was able to “shut it down” and just cruise in for the victory from there.

McCormack will be attempting to win his 4th straight title in Germany at the Roth ironman distance race in just two weeks time.
