Last Sunday I have raced the inaugural Dublin Ironman70.3. The race went well for me beacause I have won it.
The swim was in the Irland sea with a lot of waves. As a former swimmer, I like hard swim and it was. I was third at T1, four seconds back on the leader and more than two minutes on the followers group.
We start the bike at three, after 20 km K.Thornton had a puncture, despite he fixed fastly it, he was not able to become on us. After 50 km F.Cartmell had also a flat tire, he was not able to fix it and had to finished the bike with his trouble. Just before his puncture he was alone at the front with an advance of 30 seconds. I was first off the bike with a gap of 57 seconds on M.Thomschke. I start the run very fast and after 5 kilometers I had a marge of 2 minutes on the first follower. I finished the race with the fastest run and so I won the race.
With this victory I think I will have enough points to race in Ironman World Championship in Hawaii. We have to wait until 23rd of august to be sure of that.
