An excellent day of racing today of Hans in , 10-42-5k duathlon with good altitude in. A smooth first 10K, followed by a hard effort on the 750m D+ bike course (fastest bike split by La Machine) made him move up 2nd position and go into T2 together with 3rd. A strong 2nd run wasn’t good enough to beat Sören Otten (Ger) for 2nd. The race winner became Michael Pfanner (Swi), Swiss Elite athlete.
With a strong 3rd overall (and not to forget first master!) behind 2 world class duathletes on the long distance eyes are now on the first 70.3Triathlon of the season.
More Tri/Duathlon racing in Southern France, a tough race also for Bart. Triathlon international de Cannes, a rough sea swim and grouped start followed by a challenging bike course and faster run! It made Bart cross the finishline 5th in his AG! Next up, the probably toughest IM label course in Europe, Ironman Lanzarote!
In Woluwe Kristof raced his last prepraces towards the national championships mountain running, while in Antwerp 10Miles PB’s got broken and speed before the season appears in the legs!
Onwards to next week with more duathlon racing in Germany, triathlon racing in France and cycling races (road and MTB)!
Let’s kick it next week also!
