Brownlee and Pallant set new course records in Gran Canaria
Ali Brownlee has made a successful entry into middle-distance racing by winning Gloria Challenge Mogán Gran Canaria and setting a new course record.
Wearing the red colours of the Bahrain Endurance Team, he extended the gap from David Giardini and Pieter Heemeryck on the bike and won the pro men’s race after a strong run in a time of 04:03:09, stripping 10 minutes and 35 seconds off the course record.
Alistair said: “This is my first attempt at a middle distance race and there is a lot to learn. I chose Gloria Challenge Mogán Gran Canaria as my first middle-distance race because I really like what Challenge Family is about and considering we are coming into the summer race season the timing is perfect.”
