Emma Snowsill from Australia has just won the 2006 Edmonton BG Triathlon World Cup leading from start to finish. Snowsill took the lead early in the swim and kept her lead finishing in a time of 1:56:49. Emma Moffatt from Australia finished second, in only her second world cup ever, and New Zealander Samantha Warriner taking third. Their times were 1:57:38 and 1:57:51 respectively.
Not my best feeling day. Didnt have the twang to keep the gap going. said Snowsill after being caught on the fourth lap of the bike. I always like to race myself and not others.
Snowsill led out of the swim and was on her own for the first four laps of the six lap bike course until she was caught by the large chase pack containing Moffat and Warriner. This group continued to put time into the rest of the field and came out of transition together on to the run course.
The group quickly spread out on the run course with Snowsill taking the lead and never looking back.
Nadia Cortassa from Italy and Lauren Groves from Canada were the big gainers on the run pulling them selves from the second pack to within arms reach of the podium. They finished fifth and seventh place respectively.
