Tropical temperatures in Europe at the moment…
The weekend kicked off great yesterday, our Pierre got 2nd in the Trail des 2Ours at Nandrin!
Pierre is in full prep for the Ironman World Champs in Kona, Hawaii! His ‘heattest’ was successfull!
Early this morning in Vichy(France) our athletes started in the Ironman70.3 among 2300athletes. One of our youngsters, Jonas, got 42nd overall! Our oldest athlete, Guy took à bit more time and finished his 2nd consecutive IM70.3. Ironman Turkey is following!
Our cyclists are doing super, Anthony had a nice summer already and confirmed his shape week after week. Today at ‘La Velomediane’ 170km and lots of climbing waited for him. From the first climb he went into the breakaway…and managed till the end with a nice 5th place as result. Congratulations to this in extreme weather conditions!
Also in the Ardennes Samuel was picking up experience.
Our time trial specialist Svenne and Tom Veepunt were ambitious in the days leading up to GP Roland (individual Time Trial). Their ambitions were confirmed, with a 380NP and +46km/h (monstrueux) Tom took that win and follows Hans on the list of honour! Svenne finally realised podium in his homeTT and gets 3rd! Strong boys on the bike!
This evening in Holland the duathlon of Borne became a general repetition for Jan towards the Duathlon World Champs next week. Former dutch champion won this short distance duathlon, Jan got 4th and now gets a week of rest towards the world champs in Switzerland!
Different disciplines, different approaches, different athletes, same motivation and all at their very best racing and battling for the best they could be today! And they were good, inspirational for our other athletes!
