28th place at WC IRONMAN 70.3


Last Sunday I finished 28th at the World Championships IRONMAN 70.3 in Nice. Not the result I was hoping for, that's for sure. Neither I had the good feeling I worked for. I know it was risky to start in this field and over this distance, but I had nothing to lose and nothing to prove. I'll take it and now I'm back in competition modus for the next goals.


After a respectable swim in the 2nd group I never found my good legs on the bike. Same on the run part. Felt like I am already too much into full Ironman mode, while in this field and on this course you need to be able to dig deep. And just that didn't work for me. Mentally I kept going as good as I could but everyone will understand it's not the same as when you compete for a top result.


A had a couple of days recovery and now I'm back to work to prepare for IRONMAN Barcelona on 6th of October


See you soon.
