Hong Kong: Daniel Lee Chi-wo started the 1999 season with an easy win in the first leg of the Duathlon Challenge at Plover Cove Country Park yesterday.

The SAR's top triathlete beat Daniel Brown and Gordon Bryn to the line in the event, which consisted of a four-kilometre run and a 30-kilometre bike race.

Lee did not have it all his way as veteran Jeff James opened up a 30-metre lead in the run. But the 21-year-old caught James at the first transition and led him out on to the bike leg.
