Great experience Challenge roth

Tuesday, July 10th, 2012

I had a great weekend with an great race in Roth. I was very nervous before the race. It was a big race and also in my home country.

I had a very good swim and I came out with the first group. It build up a big bike group and it was very busy. After 30k this group this group got splited and I found me in the second group. I am not sure it was the right group for me or I had more in the pocket. With good legs and a gab of 10 minutes to the next group I started run fast. Hop or Top I would say in german. I got closer to the 7th position. After 35k I saw the next guy but I wasn’t able to overtake. The last 5k was like hell. At least with my 9th place I got  a top ten place in an top pro field.

Congratulations to James and Stephen, great race.

This weekend is race day again. ETU Challenge roth long distance  European champs. It will be my first start there and lot of guys told me it will be awesome. This race is one of the biggest races here in germany with a great atmosphere. Swim course is in a canal, the bike course are 2laps just a bit hilly and run course is flat. This means a super fast course with fast splits. I had a good regeneration after my last half. There are a lot of good pros on the start list also a few from TeamTBB.

Lets go out and have some fun.
