Weapon of Choice || Skye Moench

American Skye Moench produced an impressive display at the PTO 2020 Championship at CHALLENGEDAYTONA® to secure $25,000 and a sixth-place finish.

The 31-year-old from Salt Lake City produced an all-round display to stay in contention throughout the race in Daytona. Solid splits in the swim (26:04), on the bike (1.54.18) and on the run (1:09:44) kept her in contention at the top end of the race.

On the day, however, no one could match the relentless pace of Canada’s Paula Findlay who romped to victory by over two and half minutes from her nearest rival Anne Haug – Moench just under eight minutes behind the victor.

But the 2019 IRONMAN Frankfurt and IRONMAN 70.3 Boulder champion was delighted to rank so highly in one of the most competitive triathlon fields ever assembled.

“6th place at the PTO Championship and first American across the line,” Moench posted on social media.

“I was letting go of any and all of my own expectations and just went out to swim, bike, and run hard and I’m pumped to end the year with this result.”
