Jenson Button Triathlon a great success

The Jenson Button Triathlon event whose cycle stage was held in the Cathedral Quarter has been hailed as a great success, with Jenson Button himself stating that he would like to return to the city to hold the event again in the next few years.

 

It was the first time in the event's history that competitors raced on closed city roads as part of the cycle route, making it one of a very limited number of UK triathlons to do so.

 

The route took riders down King Street and along Queen Street, Iron Gate, St Mary's Gate, Jury Street, Walker Lane and Cathedral Road before returning to Markeaton Park via Kedleston Road.

 

 Pictured above is Jenson Button himself passing Derby Cathedral and entering St Mary's Gate.
