Swim without wetsuit is normal no problem but unfortunately it was on this day different. I felt like a duck, what I acted a backlog of over two minutes on the topone. On the bike my goal was to work hard in the group. We quickly gathered up a few pros from the front. The gab to the top group, we wasen t able to close but we could shake off a few athletes. I think I leaved T2 on 7-8 position. There was only one direction and that forward. Not too fast but not too slow, I started to run where the heat reached its peak. I quickly catched a few guys what motivated me to continue to put pressure to get on the podium. I knew after the first round that the first place was safed for Stephen but that I finished second on that day showed me again fight to the end is always worthwhile.
congrats to the hole teamTBB for an great competition
