Butterfield second in Monterrey
Tyler Butterfield delivered his third successive strong display of the season after placing second at the Monterrey Ironman 70.3 in Mexico yesterday.
He finished just 24 seconds behind race winner Kevin Collington, of the United States, with an overall time of 3hr 42min 34sec. Experienced Mexican Fransisco Serano rounded out the podium in 3:45:05.
Butterfield was fifth of the water in 24.05 in the lead group, which was separated by just a few seconds, with top cyclist Andrew Starykowicz, of the US, producing the quickest bike time in 1:57:22.
Although Butterfield was third off the bike in 2:00:21, Collington managed to edge him out with a run that was 19 seconds faster than the Bermudianís to take second in an overall time of 3:42:09.
It has been an encouraging start to the season for Butterfield, having finished third at the Ironman North American Championships in Texas last month and fourth at the Ironman 70.3 Dubai in January.
