Veteran Hong Kong triathlete Kim Isherwood continued her remarkable comeback from an asthmatic condition by winning her race at the Hong Kong National Road Race Cycling Championships in Sai Kung.

Fresh from her recent victory in the Timex Duathlon on the North Lantau Expressway, where she won the women's 52 kilometre race, the 38-year- old Hong Kong Sports Institute scholarship athlete easily accounted for her opposition.

Racing in ideal conditions, Isherwood clocked one hour, 16 minutes, 37 seconds for the 44 km race against other women riders and veteran male cyclists. She easily beat cyclists Philip Dobbs and Adrian Halkes, who clocked 1 hr, 17 min 24 sec and 1 hr, 20 min, 43 sec respectively for second and third places.

Her latest win has underlined her return to tough competition which she has attributed to vitamin supplements.
