Bozzone scores second at New Orleans 70.3
New Orleans — Terenzo Bozzone laid down a sizzling bike leg in the Oschner Ironman 70.3 in New Orleans on Sunday to finish second. A new addition to Felt’s stable of triathletes, Bozzone survived the hot, humid conditions to rack up another stellar result. He also finished second at Ironman New Zealand earlier this season.
Bozzone came out of the swim in chase group that was more than a minute-and-a-half behind Andy Potts but the New Zealander rode his Felt to a blistering time, closing the gap and taking a slight lead into T2.
Potts eventually regained the lead during the run, and Bozzone held off Brit Paul Amey to secure his second place finish.
