Ironman Frankfurt 2016, again…Hammer on the block!

What a day again!
Tom his 9th place in Halftriman des Monts de Guéret (France) was just a good sign for the Mainova IRONMAN European Championship Frankfurt (Germany) 2016 !
1900m swim, a hilly bikecours and 21K trailrunning was on his menu. It seemed this game fitted him well past sunday!

Great performance of Tom entering the top10 in this classy field in his first half Iron, with Gaspariau 1st and Leboucher 2nd!

Sometimes the bikecourse can be very simple, up and down…and again! Tom needed to push 318watt NP to get this performance!

A small roundup!
Dave finishes 6th in his AG in 9h00 and…and he can take a slot for Hawaii! Only…that same period he becomes father, so a bit of doubt taking the slot!
Adrian finishes FINALLY in an Ironman and after a steady race he ran into the finishline in 9h34′!
Jeroen in his first Ironman swam 49minutes finished just behind Adrian sub 10h!
Sem,Peter and PJ had a dream…finishing sub11hours! Their day went just fine, they knew the race course from last year. But being much faster than last year they didn’t spend as much time on it!
PJ en Sem
Sem and Peter ran together the last kilometers, nice clash in the end!
Peter (10h25), Sem (10h27) and PJ (10h51, 1h45′ faster than last year) RESPECT!
And then, our special guest from Roumania, Ciprian. Last year more than 13hours of racing, this year in at 11h05! Who said u can’t combine Marathon des Sables with an Ironman!
In Geraardsbergen (on ‘De Muur’) the first triathlon was held, Inge won in the masters category and became 6th overall. In the long distance race some bad luck with broken gear for Toon. But also good luck for our athletes finishing with a smile and getting experience on the longer bike courses!

In Geraardsbergen: The famous ‘Muur’ was the keyclimb in this  race!

Happy coach, happy athletes….they made this a day!
Train smart, perform better!
