Bozzone's back, Hoffman does the double

Monday, October 24, 2016, 03:06 AM GMT

Terenzo Bozzone returned to the top spot with his win at Ironman 70.3 Miami over the weekend. The former 70.3 world champion had suffered a DNF at the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii only two weeks ago but was back in fighting form in Key Biscayne. After exiting the 1.9-kilometer swim leg 10 seconds down, the Kiwi stormed to the front of the field with the race’s only sub-2 hour split over the 90-kilometer bicycle leg. He then held onto his lead with a 1:15:00 half-marathon to win in 3:42:10, more than a minute clear of any challenger.

Bozzone has won in Miami twice before, in 2012 and 2013.

Meanwhile back in Hawaii, Ben Hoffman bested last year’s finish at the XTERRA World Championship in Maui by placing 7th in the field of off-road specialists. Finishing in 3:01:42, he also defends his Outrigger Double award with the fastest cumulative time from his finish here and his 8:13:00 at the Ironman World Championship.
