Let’s begin with the positive news, 2 A-races in triathlon this weekend!
With the Spanish Irondistance championships around Girona a classy field entering this race, a lack of races in Europe right now. So races that are held…have a very strong field at the starting line.
Alejandro was more than ready to get himself into the race among the pro field, being an agegrouper.
Unfortunately or Alejandro a severe crash during the bikecourse obliged him to finish the race in the hospital, no fractures…so now licking wounds and coming back stronger. Eyes soon set on the next one!
With Cameron Wurf (UK) only 5th and Eneko Llanos (Spain) 10th, this race was meant to be hard!
In Sankt-Pölten, Austria Georg, Kris, Jeffrey and Jesse M were ready for their first race in a very long time!
The racecourse in Sankt-Pölten is quite hilly on the bike with a fast run course. The swim was divided over 2 lakes, with a 300 run in between both lakes. Tough, with only 15°C water temperature!
Kris (AG60), definitely the most experienced one of them, Kris has a very good winter behind him and felt strong before the race. This resulted in a splendid race in which he takes 5th in his AG! Now approaching his next race…Ironman Estonia!
Jeffrey was very keen on racing and with Challenge Sankt Pölten he had the excellent race to begin his season!
A very strong 70.3 distance today, with his fastest half marathon ever…resulted in a 4h33′ performance and taking 16th in his AG! Next race Chtriman 70.3.
Strongest run of the day of our athletes by Jesse M., putting down a 1h23′ half marathon in his very first 70.3 distance and finishing 27th in his AG! Within a few weeks we’ll see him racing in France also!
Georg from his side had a very good day again, and was to glad to be back at it! Finishing 32nd in his AG he can look back to good debute of 2021!
Upcoming weeks our athletes will be racing several races in Belgium, France and Canada! With only 1 goal, give the best they can..and winning has always been with them…so it ‘ll be now!
