Retired Jenson Button is still showing good race pace, but it ultimately got him disqualified in one of his beloved triathlon events.
Button recently competed in the Ironman 70.3 Oceanside in California in the 35-39 category and had finished third despite having issues with his bike.
The third-place finish would have been enough to see him qualify for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships, but he was disqualified for speeding on his bike in a go-slow zone!
He may find himself competing in another World Championship, should Fernando Alonso’s increasingly short fuse finally blow…
Well that was a pretty interesting 70.3 Ironman! Swim went well then I jumped on my awesome new bike to find that I hadn’t charged the battery for the gears so I was stuck in the toughest gear with 900meters of climbing? ran a 1hr23min off the bike which I was pretty happy with, finished 3rd in age group so qualified for the World champs only to be disqualified for speeding in a go slow zone ??♂️ Ah well onto the next one!
