The 20th edition of Ironman Austria (Klagenfurt) was held in perfect long distance weather, not too hot and a light breeze. Starting the race it was clear that Pewag Racing Team athletes were willing to take an offensive approach. Two of them – Beatrice Weiß and Lukasz Wojt – lead the race for some time. The latter almost until the end of the bike leg and finally finished 6th overall. Russian Ivan Tutukin was catching up (fastest marathon of the day, 2:40h) and almost caught winner Michael Weiss.

Castelli was well represented at yesterday’s Ironman 70.3 European Championship in Wiesbaden (Germany). Andreas Raelert was the most successful athlete by winning the silver medal. He crossed the finish line in 4:05:03 hours just behind his compatriot Boris Stein who won the race in 4:03:08 hours. “I am very glad that I might have had success to get my qualification for the Ironman Hawaii on October 10th done with this race.” During the swim in the Lake Raunheimer Waldsee, Swiss Manuel Küng was the expected leader. He started the race at a high pace and opened up an early gap. At about half way of the 1.9 kilometer swim Manuel Küng’s attack divided the lead group into two parts. After a third of the tough 90 k ride Andreas Raelert took over the lead. “I wanted to bring myself into a good position at an early stage of this race,” he said after the race. Thanks to a great bike performance, Boris Stein soon took over the lead and opened up a significant gap. Andreas Raelert downsized the gap kilometer by kilometer.

This Sunday Wiesbaden will host the Ironman 70.3 European Championship for the 9th time. The race offers a challenging, yet scenic course in southwest Germany. Lake “Raunheimer Waldsee” is the venue for the 1,9 k swim. A challenging 90 k bike loop will lead the athletes into a series of hilly climbs with steep descents. The concluding half marathon, splitted into a four-loop course, takes athletes through downtown Wiesbaden and has a drawn-out descent that lends itself to a spectacular, spectator-filled finish. After winning Müritz Triathlon two weeks ago, Andreas is well prepared to compete in a strong field of almost 70 professional male athletes. After his DNF and a solid block of training Andreas Giglmayr is keen on starting into a successful second half of the season in Wiesbaden. Local hero Matthias Knossalla probably knows the course better than any other actor. He has had a difficult summer when he was only able to swim for six weeks after he crashed out of Ironman 70.3 Mallorca in May. Just in time and as an additional motivation, he got his confirmation for Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Zell am See later this month. All Castelli pros will benefit from the performance ...
