IFE-sponsored athlete triumphs at Minehead Triathlon 2021

Intrinsic is celebrating another cheeky win from sponsored athlete Matthew Cox at this year’s Minehead Triathlon.

Matt completed the challenging course in a time of 01:05:40, nearly a minute ahead of his fastest rival. It’s his third win from four at the event (fourth time on the podium) and he gets more impressive every outing, knocking out course PBs for both cycle and run. But don’t be deceived by the sunshine and smiles, this sprint triathlon course has it all – sea swim, undulating bike route and a sting in the tail run.

“In what has been a difficult couple of race seasons for athletes and indeed, race organisers, it’s great to be back competing,” enthused IFE Director Chris Roberts. “We’re proud to be able to contribute, in our small way, to Matt’s success. He’s a dream ambassador for the Intrinsic brand. And our thanks as ever go to Channel Events CIC, for another top event – we totally value the organisation, safety and support that goes into pulling this one off.”
