Reed Takes Crown

Palmerston North-born triathlete Matt Reed, 34, now based in Boulder, Colorado, has won the Toyota US Open triathlon and the Toyota Cup series crown having taken first place in the Dallas Triathlon on October 11. Reed raced in classic form by swimming just off the heels of the leaders, dispensing with all but one hard charging cyclist and then finally, established an early lead on the run and never looked back. Reed’s dominating performance in Dallas along with a 3rd place in New York and wins in Minneapolis and Chicago won him the Toyota Cup series, earning him a total of US$40,000 in prize money.
