Today another big racing day planned for our athletes!
With Ironman70.3 Marbella the day starty early!
For Sergio (Pro Licensed this season) a 1’25/100m seaswim made him get on the bike well. In front of him Brownlee, Dreitz, Rundstadler, the Dutch Brons brothers,…a tough field of competitors so determinations must be there! Sergio, not loving to climb a lot, was challenged by the difficult racecourse and did well before putting down the bike! With a strong run he takes 16th in this Pro -field.
Vincent from his side puts down a huge bike effort of 292NP which gives a mental boost and confirmation of his hard and good work of past months!
With this bikesplit he takes a top20 overall bike effort!
Strong racing also in Belgium, with Tibo (junior). A 93K bikerace today! Being the engine of an early breakaway in which there was no cooperation at all he didn’t hesitate and kept riding with the wheel’suckers’ behind him! As I always say to my younger riders, don’t hesitate to make the race. Being in the wheels all day long can make you a winner of the day…but not a real winner! Tibo took the lead for 55K of 65K being in the breakaway and finishes 7th today. But 1 day… he wins!
Our elite rider Dries had the 3 BERGENPRIJS – E3 BINCKBANK CLASSIC, this race is one of the classics for Elite/u23 riders in Belgium. With a couple of continental teams at the starting line you know those 142K will go hard! Dries managed well between these riders and found himself sprinting for 6th place in a small group behind the leaders, finishing 29th.
Also our female athletes got involved in some cyclingraces, Hannah raced among the elites, Inge took 7th in another race!
In The Netherlands Jan puts down a huge effort in his 3rd half marathon this season. A Strong wind, tough racing conditions but also a strong mind. Jan his focus is on running this season and it’s clearly he’s taking it serious by accelerating in the last part and taking 3rd place in 1h14′!!
In Spain David race the Madrid Half marathon, hilly course and nice weather! With strong legs he finishes in 1h20′! Ready to come racing in Belgium 🙂
Tomorrow a lot of other races coming!
